Multiple Industry Applications

How It Works

i-1300 HT

World-first INTRINSIC inertness (>95%) to filamentous coke-make in higher severity olefins production in the hottest part of the furnace coil without the need for the prior formation of a surface oxide barrier.

i-1300 LTpc

Low-cost inert alumina scale former for use in the cooler parts of olefins production furnace coils without any weldability challenges.

i-1300 LTdc

Low-temperature INTRINSIC inertness to all surface coke-make mechanisms and reduction in feedstream “dropout” coke collection for use in Delayed Coker furnace coils.  Intrinsic inertness requires no oxide growth and is piggable.
