VaporKote’s aluminized fasteners are providing the solution to corrosion problems on hydroprocessing units. Stainless steel fasteners tend to corrode at high temperatures inside hydrocracker reactors and on related units. This is due to the oxidation, sulfidation and carburization problems associated with these service environments. VaporKote’s proprietary aluminum diffusion process prevents this corrosion. The aluminized fasteners are easy to disassemble during unplanned unit shutdowns or turnarounds. Many hours of costly labor can be avoided for only a minor additional cost of aluminizing. Once aluminized, these fasteners can also be reused. VaporKote works to ASTM spec. B875-96 (reapproved 2003) and also to oil company specifications wherever these stainless steel fasteners are requested for optimal corrosion resistance.
