Blasch Precision Ceramics Announces Agreement with BD Energy Systems to Bring Advanced Technology and Process Improvements to Ammonia, Methanol and Hydrogen Plants Worldwide

Albany, NY – December 4, 2018 – Today, Blasch Precision Ceramics, Inc. announced that it has StaBlox-Installation-Comparison-Videosigned an agreement with BD Energy Systems, LLC of Houston, Texas granting exclusive rights to market and sell the Blasch StaBlox™ Reformer Flue Gas Tunnel System into ammonia and methanol synthesis gas production facilities worldwide.

With this agreement, the two companies will collaborate on advancing their innovative technologies and strategically addressing global market opportunities. Together, Blasch’s patented StaBlox and BD Energy’s patent-pending Tunnel Optimal Performance (TOP) flow controlling tunnel technology offers a significantly improved and differentiating technology to the market as compared to traditional solutions. Additionally, the solution provides significant process improvement, much faster and simpler installation, and a more robust, mortar-free structural tunnel system to plant operators. Recent installations have substantiated the value proposition, and market demand has been steadily increasing.

“The signing of this agreement is a critically important and positive development in the early life-cycle of the StaBlox product line,” commented Jack Parrish, President and CEO of Blasch Precision Ceramics. “Blasch and BD Energy Systems are very bullish on the power of our combined technologies, and our ability to grow our market share exponentially, especially based on our very positive recent installation successes, and the early performance indicators of the StaBlox/TOP technology.”

“I am confident that the strategic alignment of our two companies and the synergy of these two technologies will be seen in the coming years as market-defining in taking the process performance, operation and reliability of steam methane reformers to the next level,” stated Andy Castell, President of BD Energy Systems. “We are all excited to bring the benefits from these combined technologies to the global Syngas industry.”

About StaBlox and TOP Technology
Blasch’s patented StaBlox Flue Gas Reformer Tunnel System is a versatile, mechanically stable system consisting of a series of stackable, mortar-free 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, greatly enhanced speed of tunnel construction, substantially reduced downtime and lower overall installation cost.

Through computationally modeled and designed tunnel 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.
