Revamp of catalytic cracker
Revamp of catalytic crackerLocation: Venezuela
Software used: Advance Steel
Design office: VIRO Engineering
Dimensions: 6.6 km of piping
Specifications: 240 tons of steel
Project description:VIRO Engineering had the mission to develop a basic engineering package for a capacity increase from 11,000 t/d to 12 850 t/d of the existing cat cracker.
The equipment and primary steel were created in PDMS, and the primary steel was imported into Advance Steel. The main challenges for Advance Steel were to create all secondary and tertiary steel (stairs and railings) and to clash check results between the equipment and steel structure.
The steel structure was successfully completed using the Bi-directional SDNF file format exchange, automatic stairs and railings macros and automatic workshop drawings provided by Advance Steel.
"Advance Steel is a great solution thanks to its stairs & railings macros and also for the automatic detailing of the complete steel structure. - Mr Kampen, Manager Engineering of VIRO Engineering
