Petrochem (FCC) USA, 2019

On this project, a small repair scope turned into a complete replacement of all the hex metal on this large FCC. Together with a large group of trained operators, a potentially devastating time increase for such a repair was minimized to a near-zero impact. This project also saw the first successful gunned abrasion resistant SpeedHex lining in a riser line.

At this jobsite:

  • Anchors: SpeedHex® 3
  • Most SpeedHex® 3 ever shot (250000+)
  • The first time a riser was gunned with abrasion-resistant material instead of rammed.
  • Higher reliability
  • Discovery work, multiple orders were made and delivered
  • Teams: 2 welder operators day and 2 operators night
