Industrial landscape.

Control panel for the installation of catalytic cracking of vacuum gas oil G-43-107.

The process of managing the production process.

Alternation of frames taken on the G-43-107 installation.

The concept of deep oil refining.


A cartoon explaining the process of extracting light fractions from oil.

Traffic on the city street.


View of the catalytic cracking installation.

This installation allows you to use heavy oil residues and get high-octane gasoline from them.

A zeolite-containing catalyst is used in production.

Zeolite is a kind of aluminosilicate.

Aluminosilicate in amorphous form is used in traditional cracking processes.

A scientist in a chemical laboratory.

Scientists have synthesized a crystalline aluminosilicate.

Sample of aluminosilicate.

The catalytic activity of crystalline aluminosilicate is significantly higher than conventional forms.

Cartoon explaining the crystal structure of aluminosilicate and the principle of its effect on petroleum products.

Start-up of the catalytic cracking unit after prevention.

A cartoon explaining the operation of the installation.

An operation on hydrotreating of raw materials has been started at the plant.

The operation is demonstrated on laboratory equipment.

Raw materials contain, like all petroleum products, a large amount of sulfur.

Clouds of sulfurous waste with the previous technologies of processing oil residues.

Another reason for pre-cleaning from sulfur, sulfur compounds are aggressive, they cause corrosion of equipment.

Continuation of the cartoon about the work of catalytic cracking.

The reactor of the installation.

A cartoon explaining the operation of the reactor.

The intermediate product hydrogenizate, raw materials purified from sulfur compounds, was obtained.

Installation control panel.

The laboratory checks the degree of purification of the hydrogenate.

The second section of the installation, the catalytic cracking section, is included in the process.

A cartoon explaining the further operation of the reactor.

Cartoon explaining the structure and features of crystalline zeolite.

To reduce the activity of crystalline zeolite, an amorphous aluminosilicate in powder is added to it.

Filming in the laboratory.

A cartoon showing the operation of the reactor.

Life-size reactors in production.

A cartoon explaining the need to find raw materials in the reactor for no more than 4 seconds.

Chemical formulas of the processes taking place.

In 4 seconds, in contact with the hot catalyst, the distillate evaporates and undergoes cracking along the entire height of the reactor.

A cartoon explaining this process.

For another 3 seconds, the particles of the gas-catalyst mixture are in the upper part of the reactor.

A cartoon explaining this process.

The process of separating the cracking from the catalyst begins.

A cartoon explaining the separation process.

Shooting under the microscope of a catalyst that has come out of the cracking process.

It is polluted with slags and it needs to be cleaned, regeneration is needed for this.


A cartoon explaining the operation of the regenerator.

Alarm on the cracking control panel.

Somewhere the regime is violated, the issue should be clarified quickly, because the cracking process is explosive and fire-hazardous.

An automated control system helps to solve this problem.

VC, the printer is working.

The system reports an excess temperature in the propane column.

A cartoon explaining the principle of operation of a propane column.

The appearance of the propane column.

Fractions obtained as a result of reactions taking place in a propane column are used for the production of polymers.

The operating mode of the column has been restored.
