Optimize process furnace operations

Ceramic coatings improve production capabilities and thermal efficiencies of process furnaces and boilers

Hellander, J. C., C&M Technologies, Inc.

Specially designed ceramic coatings, applied to the process tubing and refractory lining contained in the radiant section of process furnaces and boilers, can optimize operations. Such ceramic coatings can increase the thermal efficiency, maximize the production capabilities and increase the service life of the coated component while reducing the formation of NOX of the ceramic coated process furnace. Refractory lining ceramic coatings. High effective (spectral) emissivity ceramic coatings for refractory furnace linings have been classified into two temperature ranges ? low-temperature range (below 600°C/1,112°F) for convection applications and high-temperature range (above 6
