Catalyst poison removal | Silicon removal

If your units process large amounts of coker naphtha containing silicon from anti-foaming agents or heavier hydrocarbon streams containing silicon from injected flow improvers, dealing effectively with silicon is probably a major challenge. When silicon contaminates your main catalyst, it accelerates deactivation and shortens your cycle lengths.

A pioneer in developing catalysts with superior silicon capacity, Topsoe can help you tailor your loading scheme to guard against silicon and maximize cycle lengths.
