FCC Cyclones – Regenerator

FCC Cyclones – Regenerator


Fluid Catalytic Cracking Units (FCC Cyclones) are the principal technologies that enable the critical process within heavy oil refining of converting the heavy oils into more valuable gasoline and lighter products. More than half of the refinery’s heavy petroleum is processed through the FCC Cyclones, and the FCC Cyclones are also an important source of butene and pentene olefins used in refinery processes.

Our Emtrol-Buell brand has supplied more FCC Cyclones to refineries and petrochemical plants worldwide than any other supplier, so our experience in this area is unequaled. Our FCC Cyclones are designed to enhance separation efficiency, accommodate increased catalyst loading, and are tailored to meet the application needs of refineries and petrochemical plants.

We custom-engineer the following products at the highest quality:

  • FCC Cyclones – Patented Beam Hanger Support System
  • FCC Cyclones – Reactor
  • FCC Cyclones – Regenerator
  • FCC Cyclones – Third Stage Separator Systems
  • FCC Cyclones – Fourth Stage & Catalyst Hopper Cyclones
FCC Cyclones – Regenerator

Regenerator Cyclones are used to separate catalyst from flue gas created when the carbon or coke is burned with air from the FCC catalyst. They are designed to withstand very abrasive service at a temperature of 1,450 degrees F.

Emtrol-Buell has blazed the path as industry leader for over 120 years by providing reliable, cutting-edge refining equipment.
