“I’m glad to report that our #4 Platformer Heater is doing very well. It runs well and it looks great. It’s right outside my window as you know so every day I’m reminded of you and the fine job you did for us. There’s no doubt that the idea has many benefits”

Ed De la Cruz, CITGO

“The performance of the VF4 H28 heater since startup has been fantastic! The stack temperature is 370-380 F and the fuel gas usage has dropped about 40% from the old heater. This is one of the most efficient heaters in the refinery. The NOx stack testing came back 0.026 lb NOx/MMBTU, which is also outstanding. They are even trying to reduce the O2 even lower, from 4% to 3%. It's a lot different when you have a tight firebox. Great job!!!

ConocoPhillips WRB Refinery

"First of all I would like to congratulate you on the job you did at Alon for the ULSD Heater. Jeff Brorman could not stop complimenting the performance of the heater two weeks ago when Cameron and I were in Big Spring."

Bill Lozada, Common Wealth
