REFINING AND PETROCHEMICALS SOLUTIONS
Reformers and Cracker Furnaces require refractories to provide thermal insulation and high strength for demanding applications including Steam Methane Reformers (SMR) and ethylene crackers. Allied Mineral Products supplies refractory monolithics required for every aspect of these operating units including fire boxes, floors, and target walls. Ready to install monolithics and precast shapes are available.
Fluid Catalytic Cracking Units (FCCU) require refractories to provide thermal insulation and erosion resistance. This includes the vessel walls, cyclones, transfer lines, grids, risers, and flue gas lines. Allied Mineral Products supplies refractory monolithics required for every aspect in a FCCU. These versatile products can be installed by hand packing, casting, gunning, shotcreting, and self-flow. Fast firing products are available, allowing for reduced turnaround time.
Sulfur Recovery Units (SRU) require refractories to provide insulative and wear protection for the reaction vessel and control the incineration of the incoming process stream of Hydrogen Sulfide. Allied Mineral Products supplies refractory monolithics required for every aspect in a SRU. Ready to install monolithics and precast shapes are available.
Carbon Monoxide boilers (COB) require refractories to provide thermal insulation, abrasion resistance, and thermal shock resistance. Allied Mineral Products supplies versatile refractory monolithics for oxidizing and reducing conditions to optimize performance and reliability in thermal oxidizers.
Allied Mineral Products provides versatile refractory monolithics for every aspect of fired heater systems, including radiant section, convection section, breaching, ducts, and stacks. Fast fired products are available for reduced turnaround time.
Hydrogen gas plants are used for upgrading hydrocarbons as well as the production of ammonia, ethylene, and other chemicals. Allied Mineral Products provides reliable thermally efficient refractories as well specialty refractory materials for direct hydrogen contact including transfer lines and exchanger chambers.
