Catalyst Hopper Vents

Mott GSV (Gas Solids Venturi) filters effectively and reliably capture catalyst fines during catalyst transfer operations in FCC catalyst hoppers. This includes tasks like loading fresh catalyst from a truck or unloading spent catalyst into the catalyst hopper from the regenerator. The back-pulse operation of these filters occurs automatically and efficiently, maximizing catalyst recovery while minimizing utility consumption. Additionally, the durability of Mott’s porous metal filter elements, integral to the catalyst hopper system, ensures years of reliable service, making it a vital component in refinery operations.
