- High Performance Materials: Reducing Heat Loss and Lowering Energy Consumption in an Ethylene Cracker
Steve Chernack and Riccardo Cantone, Morgan Advanced Materials
With global energy prices still somewhat volatile – and set to remain so – the ability to reduce energy costs and increase plant efficiency is of key importance to managers in many industrial sectors. However, it is particularly vital to petrochemical companies. Typical petrochemical operations, such as cracking, demand huge amounts of energy and very high temperatures which in turn has major implications in terms of cost, safety and equipment life cycles.
Fortunately, these issues can often be mitigated and, in many cases, financial and practical performance can be improved by the appropriate use of modern thermal insulation and designs.
