Global demand for gasoline and gas oil has motivated refiners to convert as much heavy feedstock into light clean fuel as possible. Efficiencies in the hydrocracking process are the key to boosting profit margin and, when done right, can become a source of continued competitive advantage.
Savings in fuel and hydrogen costs
Improved catalyst efficiency through high precision
Certified safety to burner operations
Reliable valves and services for hydrocracking
Metso control valves: Precision under fire
Developed specifically to overcome challenges of hydrocracking, Metso valves help refiners to operate efficiently by controlling, with extreme precision, the flow of hydrogen and catalyst into the system.
Control accuracy and reliability can potentially save refiners large sums in hydrogen and catalyst costs. Even a 1% savings in fuel will pay for the valve technology many times over. But, more importantly, valve reliability is critical to mitigate safety concerns and prevent temperature runaway in the reactor.
In addition to improving hydrocracking unit efficiency, Metso valves are proven to last longer and be more reliable, saving customers even more in downstream maintenance and labor costs while also reducing lifetime cost of ownership.
Precision begets profit
Minor per day efficiencies can grow into huge per annum savings. Metso valve solutions can make those potential efficiencies a reality and become part of your competitive advantage.
