Whertec Europe Tube Armor

Defend against slag, ash and volatile deposits with Whertec TubeArmor® in Europe

Despite their industrial application and heavy-duty appearance, tubes require stringent care and maintenance. This is a result of slag – the fine particulates that build up on tubes to cause corrosion, erosion, leaks and other failures. Too much slag literally chokes a boiler by restricting airflow. Once this happens, the specified air-to-fuel ratio no longer applies, causing fuels to burn improperly. If the fuel in question has high mineral content, you also have the added safety challenges caused by clinker formation.

Tube Armor®prevent slag from depositing on tubes and boilers with a proprietary spray-on ceramic coating. It is a non-porous, non-reactive shield that resists ash, oxidation, erosion, iron sulfide corrosion, sulfur permeation and hazardous chemical byproducts. Tube Armor® is applied on the prepared surface one coat at the time until the recommended thickness is achieved. The convenient spray-on delivery system allows us to cover up to 2000 square meters in a single day.

Combating the enemy, slag deposits, by:

  • Non-reactive sealing of exposed surfaces
  • Better heat transfer than typical protective coatings
  • Reduced amount of sootblowing
  • Lower furnace exit gas temperature
  • Prevent corrosion
  • Ease the cleaning process during outage
  • Longer service life of your equipment
  • Enhanced fuel consumption rates
  • Reduction in emissions of CO2, NOx and particulates
