Expansion Joints for UOP / Petrobras Refineries
High-Tech Expansion Joints have been manufactured by MACOGA and delivered to the REPLAN (Paulínia Refinery) and RPBC (Pres. Bernardes Refinery) in Brasil. The Expansion Joints are incorporated to a UOP CCR Platforming Process. CCR Platforming is the preferred process for reforming of naphtha to produce aromatics for petrochemical complexes, high octane gasoline and hydrogen. In the CCR Platforming unit, aged catalyst in the reactors is continuously replaced with catalyst that has been freshly regenerated in an external regenerator (CCR regenerator) to maintain fresh catalyst performance. Pictures are self explanatory and show the complexity of these units completely made in Alloy 625 and 316H material.
