MERICAT™ J technology employs the FIBER FILM® Contactor as the mass transfer device and utilizes a proprietary JeSOL™-9 solution as the treating reagent along with air to oxidize heavy mercaptans in jet fuel and middle distillate streams without the need for a fixed carbon bed. Since there isn’t a fixed carbon bed, there is no downtime for carbon change out thereby significantly increasing the onstream factor. Use of the non-dispersive FIBER FILM® Contactor results in reduced capital expenditures and less plant space requirements compared to most treating alternatives, making MERICAT™ J the technology of choice.
