Struthers Wells, a division of Thermal Engineering International (TEi), a Babcock Power company with offices located in Houston, TX, and Warren, PA, has received an order from Mustang Engineering for a vertical shell and tube heat exchanger to function in a waste heat (flue gas) steam generator application, to be installed at Valero Energy Corporation’s Ardmore Refinery in Ardmore, OK.
This new heat exchanger will be manufactured in TEi’s Sapulpa, OK, facility. It utilizes waste heat from a flue gas stream on the tube side, and boiler feed water / steam on the shell side. Mustang has provided engineering services and projects for at least eight of Valero Energy’s US refineries, as part of its clean fuels program.
“We are pleased to supply our heat exchanger technology to Mustang. This project, which will provide new equipment from our domestic fabrication facility, will assist Valero to meet its objective of processing heavier, sour crudes while maintaining a high product yield,” stated Ken Murakoshi, senior vice president and general manager of Struthers Wells.
