  • Patent number: 10823679
    Abstract: A scanning type laser induced spectrum surface range analysis and detection system includes a laser emitting head connected to an external laser inducing light source, which generates lasers emitted through the laser emitting head, so as to generate laser induced plasma. A focusing optical device converges induction excited laser beams emitted by the laser emitting head onto a surface of a tested sample. Then, a reflector collects wide spectral range induced plasma scattered light signals of the tested sample and converges the signals into a light collecting device. The light collecting device converges induced plasma scattered light into an optical fiber and transmits the induced plasma scattered light to an external spectrograph; and the external spectrograph divides a spectrum formed by the plasma to obtain spectral strength data of different wavelengths.

  • Patent number: 9771529
    Abstract: A process for producing light olefins and aromatics, which comprises reacting a feedstock by contacting with a catalytic cracking catalyst in at least two reaction zones, wherein the reaction temperature of at least one reaction zone among the reaction zones downstream of the first reaction zone is higher than that of the first reaction zone and its weight hourly space velocity is lower than that of the first reaction zone, separating the spent catalyst from the reaction product vapor, regenerating the separated spent catalyst and returning the regenerated catalyst to the reactor, and separating the reaction product vapor to obtain the desired products, light olefins and aromatics. This process produces maximum light olefins such as propylene, ethylene, etc from heavy feedstocks, wherein the yield of propylene exceeds 20% by weight, and produces aromatics such as toluene, xylene, etc at the same time.
