Flex-R

Reactor "RADIAL" Temperature Measurement System


The refining and petrochemical industries continue to see increased regulatory requirements, increased competition and the need to operate older units or reactors.  Profitable operations demand maximizing yields and increasing catalyst run times.  Having the flexibility to take advantage of new process operating schemes and new catalysts becomes imperative.  Conventional temperature measurement designs limit or mislead operators due to design or location.  In response to these industry needs GAYESCO has developed a "RADIAL" temperature measurement system called the FLEX-R.  This technology feature advancement in several major areas of process temperature measurement and is a commercially proven success since 1987.

 

OPERATIONS / PROCESS ENHANCEMENT

  • Fast Response Time (4 to 8 seconds)
  • High Point Density Per Nozzle
  • Unlimited Point Location In Reactor
  • Powerful Diagnostic Tool That Identifies Maldistribution, Hot Spot Formation and Channeling
  • Improves Product Selectivity

ADVANTAGES

  • Real Time Temperature Readings

  • Higher Point Density Potential

  • Secondary Containment

  • Adaptability To Existing Reactor Nozzles

  • Greater Process Control

  • Increased Operator Confidence

  • Process Can Be Run More Efficiently

SAFETY

  • Fast Response To A Temperature Excursion

  • Hot Spot Identification

  • Thorough Coverage For Vessel Protection

  • High Redundancy Capability Makes Individual Measurement Point Less Critical
