ClearSign Combustion Corporation, a combustion and emissions control technology company, has announced it will install its Duplex™ technology at a Texas refinery owned by a subsidiary of Delek US Holdings Inc. This agreement marks ClearSign's entrance into the Texas market and the company's fourth major refinery customer in recent months.
ClearSign will retrofit burners within a process heater at Delek's 75000-barrel-per-day refinery in Tyler, Texas. It is expected that ClearSign's unique, patent-pending Duplex technology will eliminate potential flame impingement upon process tubes and reduce maintenance costs and downtime. Delek has expressed interest in retrofitting the Duplex technology into other process heaters if the initial installation proves the viability of ClearSign's solution.
Lindale-based JLCC Inc. will lead the contracting services for the project on behalf of ClearSign.
"The oil and gas industry has a need for practical, effective solutions that reduce impingement on process tubes which should improve utilisation rates and operating conditions. ClearSign's Duplex technology offers the industry an economic, future-proof option to simultaneously remove operational bottlenecks while reducing NOx emissions," noted JLCC Founder Jerry Lang.
"We've gained considerable traction in recent months, and in two of the country's leading oil and gas markets," said Stephen Pirnat, CEO of ClearSign. "We look forward to demonstrating exceptional results in the field and further building on this momentum."
