Refining/Chemical Processing

Blasch understands the intricacies of your processes and has developed integrated solutions that are designed to improve yield and reliability. Our numerous patented systems redefine refinery refractory applications, improve processes and lowere costs.

Sulfur Recovery

Blasch has been serving the sulfur recovery market for over two decades and in this time has developed a number of patented innovations that have allowed operators to run longer campaigns with greater reliability.  Our unique forming process allows us the freedom to design virtually without constraint to optimize the end user’s process.

Steam Methane Reforming

Reformers and fired heaters are high temperature enclosures designed to provide the maximum amount of high quality heat at the lowest operating cost to a variety of chemical processes.  These are energy intensive pieces of equipment, with critical reliability implications, and Blasch has developed products for these areas that increase reliability, reduce installation time, and lower the overall thermal mass, and therefore, the cost to operate.

Fluid Catalytic Cracking

Fluid catalytic cracking involves the breaking down of the larger, heavier and more complex hydrocarbon molecules into simpler and lighter molecules. Fluid catalytic cracking, by definition, involves the use of abrasive catalysts at high pressures in fluidizing environments, high temperatures and steam.  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.

Secondary Reforming / GTL

Conditions in secondary or autothermal reformers can be quite extreme, with heavily reducing hydrogen and carbon monoxide atmospheres. The materials selected for use in the waste heat boiler section must be of the highest purity alumina, yet maintain excellent thermal shock resistance.  The Blasch process allows for the manufacture of 99%+ alumina that is not fine grained, fully dense, or sintered and therefore retains the excellent thermal shock performance of the rest of the Blasch compositions.

Sulfuric Acid Production

Blasch serves the sulfuric acid market though an exclusive agreement with market leader DuPont MECS, and offers the same highly engineered, highly effective products that have been serving the sulfur recovery market for over two decades.  Blasch components have allowed DuPont MECS to offer greatly improved reliability and NOx guarantees, all at a lower overall cost to the end user.   Our unique forming process allows us the freedom to design virtually without constraint to optimize the end user’s process.

TiO2 Production

Blasch has extensive global experience in solving every day challenges of modern TiO2 production, particularly in the finishing process, often pioneering new high temperature abrasion and corrosion resistant solutions. Blasch Altron ™, Oxytron™ and Nitron™ silicon carbide were designed to improve plant efficiency, reliability and environmental performance. Blasch offers advanced silicon carbide solutions for wear and structural applications that often replace a metallic piece. Wear resistant micronizer linings, hot tickle piping, valves, reactor linings, chlorinator parts and other shapes are available.

Flaring / Chemical Destruction

Flaring systems in refineries and chemical plants process a wide range of difficult chemicals and the components in these systems are highly susceptible to the effects of high temperatures and thermal shock.  For this harsh environment, Blasch offers a range of thermal shock resistant compositions particularly suited for this unforgiving environment.  Our highly engineered solutions offer the maximum amount of protection for a wide range of aggressive chemicals.

Carbon Black

Carbon black reactors operate at perhaps the highest temperatures of any piece of equipment in the chemical industry.  Further, the quench section subjects refractory linings to severe thermal shock and stress, which can lead to cracking and premature failure of the refractory lining.  Blasch precast components have the abrasion resistance necessary to survive this inhospitable environment as well as the thermal shock resistance to offer a long-term reliable solution to current approaches.
