  • Infrared Thermography for furnaces

    Downstream the preheat train – where PETROVAL tube inserts can be installed in heat exchangers – the unit Heater is another potential bottleneck for a unit.

  • Dense loading and reactor pressure drop

    Since dense loading reduces the void space within a catalyst bed, it is unavoidable that the bed pressure drop (dP) will increase. This increase is quite significant, of the order of about 80%.
