The world's leading supplier of compressor trains for FCC plants

The growing demand for light hydrocarbons such as gasoline, diesel or propylene is driven by the increasing levels of motorization worldwide and the growing need for plastic or synthetic fibres. With the help of the Fluid Catalytic Cracking (FCC) process where various heavy hydrocarbons are converted to lighter more valuable products via high-temperature catalytic cracking, this growing demand can be covered.

Turbomachinery trains are at the heart of these plants and as such exert a significant influence on plant profitability. They consist of following machines:
  • Axial flow main air compressor
  • Wetgas compressor (radial flow)
  • Expander for power recovery, if specified.
MAN Energy Solutions is the leading and largest supplier of air compressor trains including its own steam turbine drivers in FCC plants with flows up to 1,000,000 m3/h. We have gained significant references for this type of application worldwide including the Main Air Blower for the world’s largest FCC plant. Wet Gas Compressors are supplied, too. These are optimized machines for specific process conditions and fully compliant with NACE requirements.
