This reactor vessel is surveyed on a yearly basis to determine degradation of refractory for optimal performance and safety. Problems on this type of equipment can be truly catastrophic.


This client had a collapse of refractory on the left wall, out of line view.  They wanted to see how the heating on the Reformer cell on the left was affected so that they could run the plant until they were ready to shutdown for repairs.  


Early detection of problems with these burners using Infrared may have saved them from the complete destruction seen here. A problem with the design was corrected and the burners were replaced but at the cost of significant plant downtime.
