A carbon black reactor takes in fuel (natural gas or oil), air, feedstock oil, water, structure control additive (potassium salt), and pellet binder (if required) to create Carbon Black. Preheated air, natural gas, and alkali metal additive are added, heated to 1650°C, and pressured down when feedstock oil is added. The right refractory products will be able to withstand constant pressure and high temperatures throughout the process and require less downtime.
In refineries and petrochemical plants, the need for high quality, dependable monolithic and brick is a constant. Because we have serviced the refining and HPI/Petrochem industries for many years, we are able to offer these industries specialty refractories that can withstand the extreme service conditions experienced in the carbon black reactor processes.
