Manoir Industries awarded a first order with Sasol, a petrochemical company based in South Africa.
Sasol placed an order for its ethylene complex located in Louisiana, US. The spare coils for the cracking furnace will be provided with the latest grade developed by the R&D of Manoir Industries, the Manaurite® XAl4. The addition of aluminium provides well-known advantages in carburisation resistance thanks to a protective oxide layer with very high thermal stability. These increased properties impact radiant coil like positively. The efficiency of this protective layer also delays coke formation significantly.
Hugues Leclercq, VP Sales, underlined ”the Manaurite® XAl4 impacts the furnace performance by increasing the time between decoking cycles” and he added ”it is gaining market acceptance”.
