Metalurgy, coatings and seat design make the difference between uptime and downtime
The FCC process is hot and abrasive. In order to achieve the greatest performance and uptime we focus on delivering the exact right material selection and trim coating materials. Our proprietary seat design is proven to reduce the collection of solids and keep valves operating reliably longer than the competition.
Metso has been developing severe service valves for more than 50 years. That experience helps to create operational efficiencies that minimize catalyst expenditures. Also, most critically, the valves are proven to stand the test of time allowing your refinery to operate safely and in compliance with environmental regulations.
Metso provides valves for traditional FCC designs proven to adeptly handle extremely erosive conditions. We also work with refineries at the cutting edge to revamp FCC units into residual FCC’s in which the challenges of heavier feedstock and all around more extreme service conditions must be overcome.
Accuracy and reliability in the most demanding applications
At Metso your investment is our responsibility. We provide severe service valves built without compromise to protect your process integrity and increase productivity and safety.
