Process Modelling

With a strong background in Refinery Technical Support and Operations, Eurotek Refining Services has recognised the frustration caused by existing FCC models on the market. They are frequently difficult to use, difficult to calibrate, and difficult to converge. In addition they require a lot of experience to use and frequently do not address the issues that interest and challenge refinery technical support personnel.

Eurotek has therefore developed a model called FCCTek which is an add-in to Excel. It runs within Excel and therefore can use all of Excels capability, including macros, graphics and calculations. The model is very easy to use and an experienced FCC engineer can learn how to run it in 1/2 a day. It links easily to existing Excel monitoring spreadsheets and can therefore be calibrated at the click of a mouse button. Macros have been built which can continuously monitor actual yields and plot them together with the model predictions so you can trend the model accuracy and/or unit changes. Excel can also be used to add refinery or unit specific constraints.

Macros are also available which will automatically generates an LP Vector Matrix for your LP. The interface for input and output can be modified to suit each refinery's personal preference.
