Developing and applying innovative products and processes is critical to the petrochemical industry. Incremental and breakthrough technologies are needed to provide continuous improvement in product quality, safety, waste reduction, operating reliability, productivity and cost reduction. Continuous reduction of environmental issues is also an important priority.
The ShockWave Power™ Technology has great potential in the Petrochemical Industry because so many of processes employ what the ShockWave Power™ Reactor does best—heat and/or mix liquids with other liquids, solids or gases. When gases and liquids are processed through the ShockWave Power™ Reactor, the shockwaves and resulting microscopic bubbles subject the liquid and gas to mixing forces that produce far superior results than achievable by conventional technology from an operating and capital cost standpoint.
Chemicals must be heated uniformly. There are no hot and cold spots with the ShockWave Power™ Technology. All processed material is subjected to heat created inside the chemical, not by heat transmitted through metal.
