Fractionator Bottoms Flow Control
Capacity, erosion resistance and performance are key.

Capacity, erosion resistance and performance are key.

The main fractionator column bottom to reactor flow control loop uses a control valve to recycle some of the bottom slurry back to the reactor for further processing. The potential for the creation of a great deal of erosion in the control valve exists due to entrained catalyst. 

Our valve solutions leverage Emerson's expertly designed valve technologies.

A Fisher™ V500 Eccentric Plug Valve is installed in many applications, but a Fisher™ severe service control valve is the most rugged solution. Both the Fisher V500™ rotary globe control valve and the Fisher™ 461 Increased Outlet Angle SweepFlo Valve are available with special upgraded trim offerings suitable for erosive catalytic bottoms, heavy ends and erosive catalyst flows.
