Crude unit preheat and furnace fouling are becoming an increasing problem as refiners process heavier opportunity crudes and light tight oils (LTOs). High filterable solids, high metals loading and poor feedstock compatibility can all impact fouling rates. This fouling can directly impact equipment efficiencies, unit run length and energy costs. The Nalco Champion solution aims to minimise costs associated with fouling and provide proven energy savings.
THERMOGAIN™ for Crude Unit Exchanger and Furnace Fouling
The Nalco Champion THERMOGAIN™ Programme’s Engineered Approach combines unique chemistries, trademarked crude stability tests, and our advanced MONITOR™ heat transfer modeling software to solve problems associated with crude unit exchanger and furnace fouling. Apply our THERMOGAIN programme to reduce energy use, minimise maintenance costs and optimise throughput rates.
