Petrochemical Tube Sheet
Petrochemical tube sheet
Tube sheets are large cast parts that must operate at high temperature (1,500ºF-2,200ºF / 815ºC-1,200ºC), and are normally found in the convection section of process furnaces. Given their large size and relatively thin walls, tube sheets are prone to stress cracking. Using the proper design, casting process, alloy choice, and balance within the specification, users avoid cracking in those harsh environments. MetalTek has worked with countless customers, leveraging a range of products sizes, shaping ability, and alloy expertise to generate tube sheets that perform. Customers partner with MetalTek metallurgical and manufacturing engineering experts to design and model castings for optimum solidification, understanding customer-specific operational problem areas which use this type component.
