THE LEADER IN EDC CRACKING


KTI has engineered and supplied more than one hundred EDC Crackers for VCM plants worldwide. KTI crackers are designed to suit all the major licensed processes with capacities to 250 TPY in a single furnace. Our success is based on EDC CRACK, a proprietary inhouse simulation program for the pyrolysis of ethylene dichloride.

Decades of experience, proven technology and guaranteed performance make KTI the leading supplier of EDC cracking furnaces.

EDC CRACK - A POWERFUL TOOL


EDC CRACK is a proprietary simulation software

developed by KTI to predict the pyrolysis of ethylene dichloride, a basic step in VCM production. EDC

CRACK has been proven to accurately simulate EDC pyrolysis model furnace performance. software The mathematical nearly 4

COIL AND BURNER DESIGN


Coil design, burner selection and burner configuration within the heater are critical design elements to insuring that an even heat flux is achieved across the entire length of the coil for maximum performance. EDC CRACK combined with KTI's practical experience insures KTI Crackers are designed for optimum performance.
