HF Alky Regeneration Heat ExchangerPictured—HF Alky Regeneration Heat ExchangerLamons was tasked with sealing a Heat Exchanger that had been leaking for almost 20 years which utilized standard double jacketed gasket technology in conjunction with standard B7 fasteners. 

Exchanger was leaking both steam from the shell side and isobutane (feed product for Alkylation unit) from the tube side.

We proposed using:

  • Lamons CorruKamm gaskets due to their resilience and recovery in high cycling environments
  • SPC4 Load Indicating Stud Technology – Intelligent Fasteners where torque can be validated by indicating the load applied
  • Belleville washers
