Three processes, Demet III, Demet X and New Demet, for demetallization of metal poisoned octacat fluid cracking catalysts were investigated. These processes removed a significant part of the V (30-40%) from the catalyst. The New Demet and Demet III were very effective in removing Ni (88% and 80%, respectively) while practically no Ni could be removed by Demet X. The Demet procedures also proved effective in removing other contaminants like Fe and Cu. All Demet methods resulted in increased cracking activities as determined by the micro-activity test. The conversions increased from 65% for the untreated catalyst to 76-78% for samples treated according to the different Demet procedures. The increase in activity was accompanied by a corresponding increase in gasoline yield of 5.0-6.5%.
