Energy saving by good insulation in petrochem: Refrex® Multi Tube Bellows

Good insulation is a key factor to reduce your energy costs.

Energy saving nowadays is an even a more hot topic as it has been ever before.

Our Refrex® Multi Tube Bellows offers this solution at high level, at high temperatures, where energy saving, and not to forget a continious production process is more than important. Insulcon manufactures, supplies and installs this high end solution into the (petro) chemical industry, for example in reformers, crude heaters naphtha- and ethylene crackers, reforming-, and platforming furnaces, visbreakers, crude heaters and all kind of process heaters.

Refrex® Mono or Multi Tube Bellows

Complicated high temperature tube passings through roofs or walls are being flexible sealed by Insulcon’s Refrex® Mono or Multi Tube Bellows. In an average size petrochemical furnace, the gap around the process tubes allows cool air to be drawn inside, as most units operate below atmospheric pressure. This has a big impact on energy costs.

Our database of success, know-how and our range of technical fabrics, allows us to select the ideal combination of materials to produce a solution with a guaranteed optimal service life and a perfect insulation which results into mentioned higher enery savings.
