USA DeBusk is a full-service solution for FCCU catalyst removal and transportation, helping you save time, reduce costs and improve efficiency during turnarounds.

Catalyst Shutdown Services (Hot Catalyst Handling)

Our procedures allow removal of catalyst during unit shutdown, cutting entire days from your schedule. We can also screen all refractory or support balls from the catalyst, then pneumatically convey the material to storage for startup or vessel for transportation – all in a 100% closed-loop system.

Fixed Bed Inert Catalyst Services

USA DeBusk provides inert and non-inert catalyst changeouts, reactor isolation and opening, as well as specialty loading services. Innovative equipment and experienced teams of catalyst professionals assure safe, quality service for you.


USA DeBusk transports catalyst, chemicals, waste by-products and raw materials. Products can be stored (bulk, super sack, sea container, or tote), managed and distributed from our secured terminals. We also offer transloading services from vessels, containers, rail cars and other options.
