Proprietary Supply (Residuum Upgrading)
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 offers the innovative ModGrid® catalyst stripper to improve the performance and flexibility required to meet the demands of today’s marketplace. The ModGrid stripper is a novel hardware design commercially proven to increase unit profitability. The unique, patented configuration provides a cost-effective and reliable solution for all modes of operation. The modular construction allows for easy installation through existing manways.
CB&I’s Micro-Jet Plus™ feed injectors achieve superior yields of valuable light products when they replace conventional injectors. Micro-Jet Plus feed injectors are designed with the optimal angle, correct exit velocities and thorough feed/catalyst contact necessary to maximize the performance of the unit. Every injector is spray-tested before installation.
CB&I’s Reaction Termination Device (RTD), incorporating our proprietary Direct-Coupled Cyclone technology, is used in both grassroots and revamp applications. The RTD is critical in preserving the yields of gasoline and light olefins by terminating the reactions at the end of the reactor riser.
CB&I provides air distributors that include the unique Multi-Stage Orifice (MSO™) nozzle designed to provide ultra-stable flow. Through extensive CFD modeling, we have identified the erosion mechanisms often seen in conventional borda tube nozzles.
The Lummus Advanced Breech-Lock Exchanger® (LABLEX®) uses CB&I's industry-proven high-pressure heat exchanger closure technology to provide solutions for critical high-pressure and high-temperature services.
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.
