Improving fired heater performance is crucial for optimizing energy consumption, reducing emissions, and enhancing overall process performance. In large-scale process facilities, energy typically accounts for at least 50% of operating costs. An energy use reduction of 10% will often improve margins by 5% and reduce CO2 emissions by 10%.
Around 1995 a handful of engineers addressed that problem and took high velocity thermal spray technology into the field. It was successfully deployed in the downstream oil and gas industry, originally in South Africa, and in the late 1990s this technology went global, being adopted by multinational energy corporations.
Those in the composites industry will now find trusted brand names and products they love from Ashland under the new INEOS Composites umbrella, including Derakane™ Signia™ resins.
Owners of assets in harsh environments know that corrosion is a perennial adversary and demand the highest quality in protection. Traditionally, inorganic zinc-rich coatings (IOZ) have been the preferred primers for these environments, thanks to their enhanced anticorrosive properties.
