Abstract

The aim of this research was, through the retrofitting of an industrial (semiscale) furnace, the reduction of the steam dilution - feed ratio without paying a penalty in the light olefinic compounds yields or, at the same steam - feed ratio, the increase of the yields of such products. The main actions carried out have been : + the design of a new radiant coil of special geometry, the coil construction and the furnace modification; + the experimental work on the furnace before and after such modification; + the economic evaluation of the experimental results The payback period of the retrofitting of an existing furnace with a capacity of 10 t/h and a stream factor of 8000 h/year is 0.6 year.
