Australia Refinery Using Latest Robotic Technology Avoids Costly Replacement
The Waste Heat Boiler (WHB) on one of the largest and most complex hydrocarbon refineries in Australia was operating at its design maximum or at times over its design limits.
Cleanliness was essential to reduce the operating limits of the furnace and avoid furnace replacement.
The higher the design stack gas temperature, the higher the Induced Draft Fan operates with a higher than intended volumetric flow.
Cleanliness is essential to prevent the fan operating ‘maxed-out’ which can be a limitation on throughput.
