Pilot Plants Units

1. Riser based continuous circulating fluid bed pilot plant unit for catalytic cracking of liquid feeds (FCC)

fccA schematic diagram of the fully automated fluid catalytic cracking (FCC) pilot plant is shown in figure 1. Preheated gas oil feed flows in the bottom of a riser, where it is mixed with hot regenerated catalyst. In the riser (9 meters long) the reactions take place and at the riser exit the mixture flows into the stripper vessel where the separation of gases from the solid catalysts occurs. The solids flow through the spent catalyst lift line and they return to the reactor bottom following regeneration.

fcc diagramThe reaction products, from the stripper exit, flow through a heat exchanger and then after their temperature is reduced to 20°C in order to condense the heavier products. Then the mixture is led to a stabilizer column for better separation of liquid and gaseous products. The specifications of CPERI pilot plant are: max feed rate=40 g/min, C/O range=3-30, riser temperature=till 650°C, regenerator temperature=till 730°C, catalyst inventory=4 kg.

Bench Scale Units

1. Short contact time microactivity unit (SCT-MAT)

sctmatThe SCT-MAT reactor is made by Pyrex glass and it is heated by a three-zone furnace. The unit operates typically at 560°C with a run time of 12s. Preheated feed at 60°C is injected into the reactor through an oil capillary heated only by the oven. For this injection a special motor pump is used. The reactor consists of an annular bed where the catalyst is diluted with inert glass beads. The vapor products of the cracking are cooled to 0°C at the reactor exit where part of them are condensed and collected in a specially designed high volume liquid receiver. The remaining not condensed gaseous products are led to gas collection system and are collected by water displacement. Following the oil injection, N2 flows into the reactor in order to drive the products along the reactor.sctmat diagram The conversion of the liquid products is determined by a Simulated Distillation Analyzer. The gaseous products are analyzed at a Refinery Gas Analyzer. The gasoline produced is analyzed by a DHA analyzer. The weight of coke, deposited on the catalyst, is measured by an Elemental Analyzer.

Industrial Contracts 2000-2017

Oil and Catalyst companies



The Laboratory of Environmental Fuels and Hydrocarbons (LEFH) can carry out collaborative or contract research on applied catalysis and can offer integrated services to the petroleum and petrochemical industry in the following areas:

  • Refining Process studies
  • FCC catalyst and additives evaluation
  • Fuel quality control
  • Solids and catalysts characterization

LEFH has been certified with ISO 9001:2015 regarding the quality management system which is applied at the laboratory. You can see the quality policy here.

LEFH has developed unique technology used by many major petroleum companies (BP, EXXONMOBIL, REPSOL, TOTAL, UOP, HELLENIC PETROLEUM etc) for outsourcing key research and technology services in the following main areas:

Fluid Catalytic Cracking (FCC) process and catalyst evaluation studies

In a number of bench scale and pilot scale units the following services can be offered:

  1. High temperature steam deactivation of catalysts (catalyst inventories up to 5 Kg)
  2. Cyclic deactivation of catalysts with simultaneous metal (Ni, V, Fe) deposition (catalyst inventories up to 5 Kg)
  3. Cyclic Propylene Steam (CPS) deactivation of metal (Ni, V) impregnated catalyst (catalyst inventory up to 5 Kg)
  4. Activity and selectivity measurement of FCC catalysts in a short contact time microactivity unit (SCT-MAT), in a short contact time-resid test unit (SCT-RT) and in Advanced Catalyst Evaluation unit (ACE)
  5. Activity and selectivity measurement of FCC catalysts in a fully circulating FCC pilot plant unit with continuous catalyst regeneration and 9 meters riser.
  6. Process studies in the FCC in a fully circulating FCC pilot plant unit with continuous catalyst regeneration and 9 meters riser.

FCC additives evaluation studies

Apart from the above described technology, the Laboratory has also developed technology for the evaluation of all FCC additives: ZSM-5, DeSOx, DeNOx and BCA (Bottom Cracking additives).
Evaluation of ZSM-5 additives
Protocols have been developed in the laboratory for deactivation and testing of ZSM-5 additives in ACE, SCT-MAT and in the FCC pilot plant.
Evaluation of DeSOx additives
A laboratory procedure has been developed in LEFH for testing the relative SOx-removal activity of various DeSOx additives. The procedure involves full cycles between SOx adsorption and regeneration of the materials, carried out usually at the conditions of a typical FCC unit.
DeSOx additives can also be tested on pilot scale using the fully circulating FCC pilot plant.
Evaluation of DeNOx additives or CO combustion promoters
A laboratory procedure has been developed in LEFH for testing the NOx-removal activity of various DeNOx additives (or CO promoters). The procedure is based on a fluid bed reactor. The bed consists of spent FCC catalyst and is fed by a mixture of 2% O2 in N2. NOx reduction additives can also be tested on pilot scale using the FCC pilot plant unit.
Evaluation of BCA additives
BCA are very important additives because of the higher amounts of resid added in the FCC feedstock. The technology developed in CPERI for BCA evaluation is based on the units described above for FCC catalysts. The CDU is the key unit for this evaluation (metallation procedure) while the final evaluation is carried out in MAT, ACE or FCC pilot unit according to a specific protocol.

Hydroprocessing Research Studies

A large pilot plant with two reactors can be used for various hydroprocesing research studies (hydroisomerization, reforming, hydrocracking, hydrodesulfurization). The unit can operate till max 200 bar pressure and up to T=550°C in the reactors.


For the competitive research projects LEFH is in close co-operation with many research institutes and industries
