We can perform studies to determine the best solution to improve heater performance at an optimised investment cost. Revamping fired heaters has been proven to extend working life and lower capital investment, to enhance performance such as duty and efficiency, and to increase payback.
In addition, studies and revamps can address the need for increased run lengths between shutdowns, reduce maintenance cost, and improve sustainability by reducing environmental impact of emissions and noise.
Revamping to upgrade, refurbish and improve the performances of fired heaters built by Amec Foster Wheeler or others is an important part of our service offering.
We have very extensive revamp experience, providing innovative solutions, including:
- Selective catalytic reduction additions
- Air preheat additions
- Capacity increase/debottlenecking
- Hot oil heat recovery
- Process changes
- Steam reformer revamps
- CO boiler revamps
With in-house design, engineering, procurement and project management, we can provide a full service, covering conceptual engineering, planning and cost control, as well as supervision of shop pre-fabrication, and advisory services for site erection and commissioning.
