LC-FINING efficiently hydrocracks residuum to high-quality fuel oils and transportation fuels

LC-FINING treats heavy hydrocarbons with hydrogen in the presence of catalyst to produce low sulfur products.

CLG's ebullating bed process, LC-FINING, provides high product yields and a high removal of metals, sulfur and CCR from difficult feedstocks. LC-FINING provides superior performance with ease, safety and reliability at the best economics. Only CLG LC-FINING can reduce both capital investment and operating expenses. Its built-in onstream catalyst addition and withdrawal system eliminates the need to shut down for catalyst replacements. The proprietary low pressure hydrogen recovery system eliminates most high pressure equipment required downstream of reactors in other processes.

The advantages of LC-FINING are:

  • low investment
  • more light-ends recovery
  • lower operating costs
  • more efficient heat recovery
  • lower hydrogen losses
  • lower maintenance
  • maximum conversion to light clean products
  • integrated fuels hydroprocesing
  • four years operation between turnarounds
