Equipment used in the petrochemical industry primarily requires good refractory insulation, even where no direct contact with chemically aggressive substances exists.
RATH provides a wide product portfolio of insulating materials including ALSITRA & ALTRA mats and modules, CARATH insulating castables, PORRATH insulation fire bricks and Kerform vacuum-formed boards and shapes to ensure insulation at every temperature i.e. for crackers, reformers, combustion chambers, etc.
IN-HOUSE MANUFACTURING AT THE HIGHEST QUALITY
The petrochemical industry, but also the servicing OEMs appreciate the fact that RATH manufactures all the refractory products required to insulate these units in-house.
Depending on temperature, gas velocity, flame impingement and ambient requirements, as well as expected maintenance-free operation, we select the lining for the radiation zone. Porrath insulation fire bricks and Alsitra mats and modules provide the required insulation.
Typically, the convection zone is lined with Carath insulating castables. The convection zone is divided into temperature segments that each utilize a multiple-layer system targeting optimum insulation and hence the lowest possible energy loss.
