Gasification - Critical Vessel Monitoring

Gasification - Critical Vessel Monitoring
05/07/2012

When processes take place inside refractory lined vessels it is critical for safe plant operation to ensure the integrity of the refractory lining. In the event of refractory breakdown, hot gases come into contact with the vessel shell potentially causing catastrophic failure and risking costly unplanned shutdowns.

It has long been acknowledged that the most effective method for monitoring refractory integrity is through vessel skin temperature measurements. However this is typically performed using contact thermocouples bonded to the vessel surface and connected via a fibre optic mesh. The measurement coverage on the vessel is often 1 measurement per 250cm2 / 0.25 ft2. Such systems are both expensive to install, require regular maintenance and often need to be replaced after less than 3-years of vessel operation.

The proven Critical Vessel Monitoring System from Land is able to provide a significantly improved measurement density with 1 measurement per 16cm2 / 0.02 ft2 allowing earlier detection of refractory breakdown, often before the problem becomes dangerous. The system uses low maintenance, industrial thermal imaging cameras installed around the vessel to maximise the coverage of the entire vessel and provide complete coverage of the critical dome and cone sections.

With over 60-years experience of designing and implementing custom solutions for individual customer requirements LAND has the core competencies necessary to provide a turnkey solution for Critical Vessel Refractory Monitoring. Our regional team of Application Engineers are perfectly placed to understand local plant requirements and adapt the Critical Vessel Refractory Monitoring system according to your needs.
