Catalytic Dewaxing
Catalyic dewaxing is used to improve cold flow properties of diesel fuels and lube oils by selective hydroisomerization/ hydrocracking of normal and slightly branched paraffins. SDD/ SLD series catalysts are suited for use in the following applications:
  1. conventional diesel fuels dewaxing to deep dewaxing (Artic grade production) in 1st and 2nd stage applications,
  2. in combination with high pressure hydrocracking or mild hydrocracking catalyst package,
  3. in mild hydrocracker bottoms pour point reduction for storage and transportation and
  4. to produce lubes of exceptional quality.
