The patented Blasch StaBlox™ reformer flue gas tunnel system is a versatile, mechanically stable system consisting of a series of stackable, interlocking blocks. Unlike traditional flue gas reformer tunnels, which rely on mortar for mechanical integrity, and typically fail as a result of multiple thermal cycles and poorly performing expansion joints, the StaBlox system is designed to fit together in a mortar-free assembly that can easily and accurately accommodate for any thermal growth. 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. All StaBlox components are fully customizable allowing for any situation or unit.
The unique geometry and advanced mating features of the blocks in the base, walls, tie-rods, and structural lid of the StaBlox Tunnel System allows for the assembly of complete tunnels in hours instead of the days required to fabricate a tunnel using traditional brick and mortar techniques. The highly engineered design also reduces overall mass by 60% while maintaining structural integrity.
Other mechanical advantages include, but are not limited to:
With orifice inserts, BD Energy Systems’ patented TOP™ technology may be implemented to provide near-uniform flow along the length of each tunnel, promoting even heating and reducing tube hotspots.
Other process improvements that your plant can expect to achieve include, but are not limited to:

The same base material and distributed expansion technology behind the StaBlox system have been saving Blasch customers money in various high-temperature combustion applications for decades.
Watch this short video to see how Blasch’s fully engineered and stackable StaBlox parts can be installed orders of magnitude faster than traditional brick and mortar tunnels. The installation of a Blasch StaBlox flue gas reformer tunnel system includes:
– Lightweight bricks interlocking together with built-in expansion gaps
– Hollow, but strong engineered lids locking into the sidewall, providing the necessary protection from impact and cracking.
– Complete moisture less design, requiring no drying or curing.
In this recorded presentation, learn about the mechanical and reliability features of Blasch’s StaBloxTM, and the process improvements of BD Energy’s TOPTM technology, including:
– Reduction of methane slip of 2%-3% provides options for plant operations.
– Increased tube reliability
– Potential to incorporate an in-tunnel SNCR NOx reduction system
