VaporKote boronized its first set of wet gas scrubber spray nozzles for a Texas refinery nearly five years ago. They are still running today.
Before our surface enhancement, these high-end nozzles were wearing out after two or three years in service and installation of replacements required costly unplanned shutdowns that lowered operational efficiency. The first VaporKoted set of boronized spray nozzles is still in service and shows no sign of needing replacement anytime soon.
Our success with this application recently caught the attention of the spray nozzle manufacturers. VaporKote is now working with them directly to make sure end users have an upgraded VaporKote set that will last between turnarounds, saving our clients millions in the process by avoiding downtime.
