30 Apr Quench Headers Lining
Industry: Refining & Petrochemical
Description of Equipment: Ethylene furnace quench headers.
Problem: Clench headers traditionally experienced hot spots prematurely using conventional refractory due to improper thermal dry-out during unit start-up.
Solution: Thermbond Formula 16-L eliminates thermal dry out restriction during start up because of self-curing and fast drying characteristics.
Product Being Replaced: New quench headers.
Savings Using Thermbond: Eliminate future hot spots.
Products Applied: Thermbond Formula 16-L
Method of Installation: Vibrated, Cast
Equipment Used: Four 30 quart Hobart mixers and 2 large external vibrators.
Scope of Work: A total of four 7’ long quench headers were cast with Formula 16-L at a thickness of 2”.
