"The introduction of new technological solutions that can increase production efficiency is mandatory for every major repair. In particular, this year a lot of attention was paid to the modernization of furnaces - the most resource consumption element in a lot of Units at Refinery. New larger-diameter coils were installed at the primary oil processing. This reduces the load on the equipment. After installation, all coils were coated with a High-Emissivity Ceramic coating. According to specialists of the Office of Improving Production Efficiency at Omsk Refinery, the ceramic coating reliably protects the coil pipes from high-temperature corrosion caused by vanadium oxide and other combustion products. And thanks to special additives, the ceramic composition increases the "degree of blackness" of the metal, that is, its ability to accept the radiant energy of the torch. As a result, the pipelines working more efficiently and much longer. A similar coating was applied to the coils of the furnaces of the 43-103 catalytic cracking unit."
