Fluid Catalytic Cracking (FCC) is one of the most important conversion processes used in petroleum refineries. As with many other refining applications, the vessels in the reactor system need to be operated and controlled at their optimum levels, as this is critical for the process productivity. Maintaining the proper levels also ensures that the expensive catalyst is used at maximum efficiency, with no waste.
