CR3 Thailand (CRAT) collaborated with shareholder Mourik, using its MIDC loading technology to execute a tubular catalyst change-out for TOC Glycol’s turnaround 2019.

Mourik’s Modular Insert De-dusting Catalyst (MIDC) loading system greatly improves the efficiency and safety of catalyst loading in tubular reactors while maximising the catalyst performance. A modular system that uses specially designed inserts to load the catalyst to the desired height. By combining modules, the system can reach every tube in the reactor.

The job required the extensive organisation of resources to mobilise the equipment and implement the new MIDC method for unloading and cleaning of the reactor.

With exceptional cooperation from the CRAT team and support from CR3 Group, the job was well executed, ahead of schedule.
