Carbon Monoxide Boilers

Carbon Monoxide Boilers are thermal oxidizers that are used to oxidize carbon monoxide (CO)-rich waste gases that are typically generated by Fluidized Catalytic Cracking (FCC) and Residual Cracking (RCC) units in petroleum refineries. They are traditionally referred to as “CO Boilers” due to the large quantity of steam that is generated by an integral waste heat recovery system. Zeeco is an approved supplier of Carbon Monoxide Boilers for all of the world's major FCC/RCC process unit licensors.
