Process Tube Oxidation, Corrosion & Carburization Protection
Cetek Ceramic Coatings provide a durable, protective, thin-film layer on the outer surfaces of process tubes, which prevent oxidation, corrosion and carburization of the metal and maintain the tube thermal conductivity coefficient close to new tube conditions.
Oxidation and scale formation on the outer surfaces of process tubes reduces conductive heat transfer, resulting in low production rates and/or excessive fuel consumption.
Corrosion and carburization result in metal loss and reduced service life. Cetek’s coatings provide significant benefits in the form of:
- Fuel Savings
- Production Increases
- Increased Tube Life / Reliability
The coatings are applied by Cetek’s highly trained, experienced technicians, following thorough cleaning of the tube surfaces. Coating systems are available for every type of metal substrate and process temperature.
The coating application may be in-situ, to tubes already installed in heaters, or to new tubes at Cetek’s facility, or a remote site. In the latter cases, coated tubes may be placed in storage until needed.
The coatings are inert, non-catalytic and water-based, offering a complete environmentally safe process improvement.
The service is supported by a superior Health & Safety Program, yielding a safety record better than industry standards.
