The BP refinery in Castellon (Spain) has two units that require regeneration on a yearly basis. And so each year BP rents from Atlas Copco Rental two PNS1250 oil-free compressors together with fuel tanks and a technician stays on site in case of emergencies.

It is extremely important to minimize the number of days the regeneration operation takes to let the refinery capture the maximum margin of every crude oil barrel. By using high pressure air compressors, we can increase operating pressure and the quantity of air, making the coke burn faster ... For every regeneration we prefer Atlas Copco compressors because of their competitive price and very reliable equipment. This allows a faster operation in safe conditions.
