One of the most maintenance intensive areas of any ethylene plant is the cracking furnaces. Overall ethylene furnace operations can make or break the profitability of an ethylene plant with respect to fuel efficiency, run time between decokes, and coil life. This furnace tutorial will focus on key sections of an ethylene cracking furnace and provide important concepts/practices that can contribute to improved short-term and long-term furnace performance. Areas of consideration include the radiant and convection section components, steam-producing systems, and decoking concepts.
