When designing the insulation lining for an ethylene cracking furnace, it is of the utmost importance that it complies with the codes and standards as outlined by the American Petroleum Institute (API). In this application story Unifrax demonstrates the use of ethylene cracker furnace lining systems without the need for a microporous back-up option (RCF modules with microporous back-up board).
High Temperature Solutions for Petrochem
Silplate Structural Insulating Board
Silplate® boards were specially developed by Unifrax for backup applications that require a very high-strength refractory insulating material. Common applications are for backup in ladles or tundishes that are used in molten metal transfer. Using Silplate boards for backup applications can significantly reduce steel shell cold face temperatures. Because of Silplate’s high use temperature limit, in many cases a thinner refractory cross section may be used and this practice results in increased vessel capacity.
