Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


The purpose of this study are to analyze and identify the causes of catalyst deactivation and provide recommendations and solutions to these problems. This research was conducted by identifying phenomena & analyzing the causes of deactivation of catalysts, testing the factors that are the causes of deactivation of catalysts, providing solutions and recommendations and testing these solutions. The results of this study indicate that the decrease in RON values on reformate products is caused by catalyst deactivation due to sintering. The sintering of the catalyst was identified through Regenerator CCR performance which was marked by a decrease in regeneration gas & chlorination gas flow as well as a decrease in the oxygen content of the chlorination gas due to a plugging at the center screen of the CCR Regenerator Tower.
