Reaction furnace mixing technology for improved Claus plant yields Field results from new installations of new mixing checker walls in dozens of reaction furnaces reportedly improve cost-savings through operating efficiencies. The new hexagonally shaped units, known as VectorWalls, improve the flow and mix of process gases, thus lowering operating cost and capital expenditures. They reduce the reactor vessel footprint in the new construction of sulfur-acid and other chemical process plants. According to the manufacturer, over three years of operating data support this achievement. The first installation, initiated in 2009, has operated with favorable results on a continual basis.
