Refineries, petrochemical, and chemical facilities can reduce gas use by up to 15%.
Fired Heaters in Oil refineries, petrochemical, and chemical facilities use a lot of fuel. Optimizing the efficiency of the radiant and convection sections of these furnaces delivers fuel savings of up to 15%, resulting in $Millions of savings annually.
Refineries, petrochemical and chemical facilities work with Integrated Global Services (IGS) to evaluate their fired heater. The evaluation estimates results that can be achieved with the application of one or several innovative technologies: high emissivity Cetek coatings, Tube Tech cleaning services, and Environmental SCR solutions.
Advanced performance enhancing solutions have created an increased opportunity to reduce fuel use in fired heaters and reformers.
Radiant tube thin-film ceramic coating prevents oxidation and scale growth for the life of the coating.
The high emissivity nature of the refractory coating, in turn, ensures that a maximum amount of radiant heat available is absorbed by the tube surfaces.
The combined benefit from high emissivity coatings applied to refractory and tube surfaces can be as high as 15% increase in radiant section heat transfer efficiency. This increase in heat transfer efficiency leads to two significant effects on NOx and CO2 emissions: Lower flue gas temperature leaving the radiant section (bridgewall temperature)
Convection section efficiency can be improved with the use of convection section cleaning. IGS’ Tube Tech solution utilizes robotic cleaning that achieves a 90%+ clean area with no risks associated with manual/man entry cleaning.
