Proprietary Supply (Ethylene Production)
CB&I supports our petrochemical and refining technologies with a variety of engineered products that facilitate conversion, enhance productivity and lower production cost. Our proprietary offerings include:
- Catalysts for petrochemical, polymer and refining processes
- Heat transfer equipment, including fired process heaters, ethylene furnaces and heat exchangers
- Specialized internals for fluid catalytic cracking (FCC) units
- Modular pressure swing adsorption (PSA) gas separation units
CB&I has developed a state-of-the-art pyrolysis furnace in response to the growing ethylene demand. CB&I has built more ethylene furnaces than any other ethylene process licensor, representing more than 40% of worldwide capacity. The SRT® furnace is well known for its reliability in capacity, yield, run-length and energy efficiency.
The HELIXCHANGER® heat exchanger uses CB&I's industry-proven, enhanced heat transfer technology to provide solutions for common issues such as shell-side fouling, high pressure drop and vibration.
CB&I maintains proprietary catalyst formulations tied to our licensed processes. Catalysts improve process economics by steering reactions to higher conversions and yields.
