Tricat, Inc. (Tricat) is located in the Taylor Industrial Park in McAlester, Oklahoma. The facility uses a propriety process to regenerate spent refinery and petrochemical catalyst for reuse. The spent catalyst is delivered to the facility in closed containers. These alumina and/or silica catalysts are contaminated with petroleum constituents, sulfur, and heavy metals. Through a relatively low temperature thermal process, the hydrocarbons and sulfur are driven off and removed through a series of dry and wet scrubbing units. After processing, the recycled catalyst is returned to its owner for reuse. At the end of the catalystís life (three to six cycles), the catalyst is pre-reclaimed at Tricat and sent to other businesses engaged in metals recovery.
