Olefins crackers operate at low pressure after the furnace hydrocarbon feed is mixed with steam. This dilution steam can be generated from recovered process water. The olefins plant should have a set of books provided by the plant designer describing the process and would be an excellent place to begin learning the whys and hows of the process. A web search also reveals useful information such as this report on dilution steam generation: https://www.klmtechg...ROCdraft5.0.pdf
