The patent-pending Blasch StaBlox™ flue gas reformer tunnel system is a versatile, mechanically stable system consisting of a series of stackable, interlocking blocks. The StaBlox system allows for an extremely fast, easy installation as compared to conventional brick and mortar designs, while at the same time offering a much higher level of reliability with customizable blocks and highly engineered, mortar free expansion joints. Roof assemblies offer lightweight, structurally stable designs that are engineered to be much more resistant to the effects of high temperature creep than standard designs.
Several advantages can be expected when utilizing a StaBlox System including:
With orifice inserts, BD Energy Systems’ patent-pending TOP™ technology can be implemented to provide near uniform flow along the length of each tunnel, promoting even heating and reducing tube hotspots, discussed further in the July/August 2016 issue of Nitrogen + Syngas.
The same base material and distributed expansion technology behind the StaBlox system has been saving Blasch customers money in various high temperature combustion applications for decades.
