Improve Oil QualityRefining cat finesDuring modern refining processes theresidual oils from atmospheric and vacuumdistillation are sent to a cracking tower.Here the long hydrocarbons are crackedwith the help of pulverised catalysts suchas aluminium silicates which are mixedwith the oil. This cracking process takesplace at a temperature of approx. 500 °C(930 °F). A lot of these cat fines remainin the residues of the cracking tower andthe distillates coming from the crackingprocess.These cat fines can be separated from theoils to recover them and / or to improvethe oil quality.Cat fines removal plant in special design2GEA Westfalia Separator
