In chemical plants, gasifier fuels can be petroleum coke, natural gas, or oil. These fuels are converted into carbon monoxide, hydrogen, and methane in gasifiers operating at temperatures near 2650°F. Hydrogen, carbon monoxide, and methane become feedstocks to produce a wide range of petrochemicals such as methanol and plastics.
H-W® CORUNDUM is a dense, 99 percent alumina brick for gasifier hot-face linings utilizing a fuel such as natural gas or oil. Its benefits include lining stability in the presence of hydrogen, high strength to resist process pressures of 1000 psi, and a worldwide proven lining reliability at a 2650°F operating temperature.
AUREX® 95 P, a dense chrome-alumina brick for gasifier linings utilizing coal or petroleum coke, offers maximum resistance to molten slag penetration. This increases gasifier lining reliability and minimizes gasifier downtime.
