New Technologies in ethylene cracking furnace design
By Jelle Gerard Wijnja, Technology Manager Ethylene Furnaces, TechnipFMC
TechnipFMC is a world leader in designing steam crackers, from concept stage through construction and commissioning for both grassroots plants (including mega-crackers) and plant expansions using its proprietary technologies. TechnipFMC provides a wide range of services to the ethylene industry.
TechnipFMC has innovated its cracking furnace design, in which the chemical cracking reactions take place. Some of these innovations that improve the cracking process like the three-lane radiant coil, Swirl Flow Tube (SFT®) and the Large Scale Vortex (LSV®) burner have been applied in both new furnaces and/or cracking furnace revamps.
