Frequently asked questions
Why do refinery customers request services from Catalyst Intelligence?
Why do catalyst companies want to work with Catalyst Intelligence?
Following a reactor re-load we have excess fresh catalyst, as actual loading density was lower than expected. What can we do with the excess catalyst?
Can you analyse the spent noble metal catalyst and advise on best reclaim route?
Can you assist with preparing a plan for disposal of spent catalysts unloaded during the turnaround?
Can you assist with writing an invitation to bid (ITB) for a new catalyst load?
How can we check for catalyst deactivation by contaminants and prevent poisoning of the active grades?
How can we improve the particle length of fresh catalyst?
How can we reduce our manufacturing costs to increase competitiveness?
How do I write a complete RFQ for a fresh re-load of an existing unit?
How do we ensure that we select the best catalyst offer?
The hydroprocessing catalyst needs to be sulphided; should we use in-situ or ex-situ sulphiding?
The unit does not perform as expected; how do we determine if it is catalyst related?
The unit is approaching end of cycle. How do we determine whether the catalyst batch is suitable for regeneration?
We have a regenerated batch of 1.3mm QL-shape hydroprocessing catalyst with an average particle length of only 2.5mm. Can it be re-used?
We have carried out maintenance on our CCR and want to re-load the used catalyst, but part of the batch is contaminated with high carbon (heel) catalyst. Is there a proven technology for removing the heel pellets?
We need a toll producer to manufacture product X. Where do we find one that understands the product requirement and is willing to scale up production if demand increases?
We use a proprietary catalyst. Can it be regenerated?
We want to outperform our competitors; what benchmark should we set for R&D?
Where can we do third party catalyst testing?
