“Blasch manufactures some of the highest performing materials such as AltronTM – ABSC available for use in the cat crackers that often replace metal components or hexmesh castable traditionally used. Our AltronTM brings wear resistance often found in technical ceramics along with thermal shock, corrosion resistance suited for FCC Units,” commented Tim Connors, Senior Market Manager – Energy & Chemicals for Blasch.

“We are excited to meet with representatives from companies in need of products to address wear & life issues in their cat cracking units. Years of developing unique solutions for Sulfur Recover Units, coupled with the development of a unique silicon carbide-based material has given us inertia when coming up with solutions for cat cracker abrasion.”

Blasch has significant expertise all of these environments and has developed a number of abrasion resistant silicon carbides that can stand up to these conditions and may be cast into a variety of close tolerance, complex shapes that can be used for everything from the air grid nozzles to large vessel linings.
