    Technology designed to perform high velocity thermal spray (HVTS) applications is invented and applied for Sasol in South Africa

  • 1999

    The HVTS innovation goes global

    Used extensively in Sasol and Chevron facilities, other Upstream Oil and Gas assets and Coal Power plants

  • 2000

    Fired heater solution identified

    First Cetek applications in the early 2000s saw process engineers report 4-10% efficiency increases

  • 2004

    Introducing: Clean Guarantee

    Operating conditions in the Downstream, Petrochem, Pulp & Paper, Waste to Energy and Biomass sectors called for alloy modifications

  • 2006

    Arduous conditions call for material development

    Hot-Tek offering is developed facilitating maintenance, inspection and cleaning services for fired heaters without the need to shut them down

  • 2008

    Some like it hot

    IGS now provides an environmental product offering, including LPA filtration, turning vanes and air cannons
