Hot Vacuum Services of Selective Catalytic Reduction Catalyst Banks
Cetek specially introduced its patent pending Hot Vacuum Service for cleaning catalyst banks in SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction) units attached to steam methane reformers, fired heaters. We clean units during operation, with no interruption to production, and offering rapid payback of associated costs.
Cleaning Selective Catalyst Banks in SCRs
Hot Vacuum Service returns operation to maximum efficiency by restoring the pressure differential across the catalyst to an “as-new” condition. Hot cleaning eliminates wasted energy consumption and strain on the ID fan motor. Furthermore, it ousts potential curtailment of production due to gas flow blockage or excessive NOx production.
Hot Vacuum Service
The online vacuum service is possible with any catalyst configuration, vertical, or horizontal flue gas flow direction. In some applications, we use Cetek’s Lancescope™ system to see hard to reach areas.
