WHITE PAPER

Prolong the runtime of heat exchangers via an anti-foulant chemical treatment

Process equipment fouling in oil refineries and petrochemical industries is an on-going, severe and costly problem. Fouling of equipment results in costly operational problems that include:

 

  • Reduced reliability and processing flexibility
  • Inefficient heat transfer and subsequent increases in energy costs
  • Excessive maintenance requirements
  • Reduced throughput
  • Equipment damage
  • Potential safety and environmental concerns

 

This can result in lost revenue due to lower daily throughput or worse; an unexpected plant outage. Control of fouling is dependent on understanding the type of fouling and the mechanism that initiates the process.
