MAXZOOM – the new FCC S.A. additive


Fábrica Carioca de Catalisadores S.A. launches the new MAXZOOM, the most recent development in additives for light olefins at low dilution effect.

Being more active and having excellent attrition resistance features, MAXZOOM is formulated at high concentration in ZSM-5 zeolite crystals, which allows it to be employed in lower amounts relative to state-of-the art (commercial) additives while reaching the same performance. MAXZOOM reacts with olefin compounds in the range of naphtha and LCO so as to crack those into C3, C4 and C5 olefins.

By applying MAXZOOM the refiners observe increased aromatics concentration in the cracked naphtha and additionally possibly less olefin compounds in the naphtha range, lowering the amount of paraffin compounds formed by H transfer.

An ideal product for high ZSM-5 contents applications with maximum light olefin production, higher yield of C3 = to iso-additive than conventional additives and lower catalyst inventory dilution. This is the highlight performance of the new MAXZOOM additive, resulting from the continuous and refined R&D job performed by FCC S.A., Petrobras/Cenpes and Albemarle.
