Reformed Gas Waste Heat Boiler

BORSIG Process Heat Exchanger GmbH offers two different designs of the reformed gas waste heat boiler.

Steam Superheater

Our patented steam superheaters are suitable for steam pressures of up to 160 bar (16,000 kPa). The steam superheaters are arranged direct in line after the waste heat boilers which are connected to the secondary reformer or reformer – depending on the process.

Synthesis Gas waste heat boiler

BORSIG Process Heat Exchanger GmbH supplies synthesis gas boilers for gas pressures up to 350 bar (35,000 kPa) and steam pressures up to 160 bar (16,000 kPa). They are used in the synthesis gas loop of ammonia plants. The boilers are equipped with U-tubes and can be mounted both in the vertical as well as in the horizontal positions. 

Partial oxidation of oil and natural gas

The non-catalytic cracking of hydrocarbons by partial oxidation of natural gas, oil etc. is carried out at temperatures up to 1,500 °C and pressures up to 8,000 kPa. We have developed our own boiler design taking into account the high demands.

Replacement Waste Heat Boilers in plants for the production of nitric acid

BORSIG Process Heat Exchanger GmbH offers replacement waste heat recovery systems and repairs of boilers that have been delivered by BORSIG or STEINMÜLLER to plants for the production of nitric acid, formaldehyde and caprolactam.

HP Heaters and Special Vessels

BORSIG Service GmbH manufactures HP, LP pre-heaters and special vessels for all customers in the oil refinery, petrochemical and chemical industries as well as for power plants.
