Procatalyse Catalysts & Adsorbents

ACT 068
Speciality bed topping
ACT 068 has been developed to extend cycle length of units pressure drop due to
particulate deposition or top bed crust formation. ACT 068 replaces ineffective inert
balls used for bed hold-down at the top of catalytic reactors in liquid phase or vapor
phase service, such as refinery hydrotreating and other similar applications.
The bed topping is a highly inert ceramic incorporating a special penta-ring shape with
a high void fraction to provide an efficient capture of particulates and other
contaminants in the feed. ACT 068 is one of the successive stages in Axens system
for pressure drop control.
The ceramic penta-rings provide a high void volume and a large void gap to trap
particulates and mitigate pressure drop build-up.
