While planned shutdowns are regular occurrences in the life cycle of a petrochemical plant, not all shutdowns are planned. Furnaces can experience unplanned shutdowns. These events are often referred to simply as “shutdowns” but can also be referred to as a “rapid shutdown” (RSD) or “emergency shutdown.”
In the event of a rapid shutdown, a plant owner or operator needs a rapid response from a metal casting supplier. Over a recent long holiday weekend, the team at MetalTek’s Carondelet Division in Pevely, MO once again demonstrated that they have what it takes to be a rapid-response partner for the petrochem industry.
