B5

When dryout is done in a furnace, the temperature measuring devices


are installed on the refractory side & on external surfaces of equipment
(Skin) to indicate differentials between metal & refractory temperatures.

Para. 10.3.3

B6

Unless otherwise specified by the Refractory Manufacturer, minimum


hold times during dryout are 1 hour per 25 mm of refractory thickness.

SAES-N-110,
Para. 10.3.4

B7

Dryout inspection (SAES-N-110, Figure 1 Checklist) are as follows:


A) Firing equipment used is in good condition & meets
procedure
B) Burner
locations spacing relative to refractory is checked
C)
Dryout schedule is available & meets procedure
D) Thermocouple locations are identified & meet the procedure
E) Recording equipment is available & calibrated &
meets procedure

SAES-N-110,
Para. 11.6

C.

Inspection Requirements After Dryout (SAES-N-110 or SAES-N-120 Procedure, Attachment 1)

C1

All inspection is performed per Saudi Aramco Inspection Requirement


Form 175-328110 & SAES-N-110/120 procedure. See Attachment 1.

SAES-N-110,
Para. 11.1.1

C2

Visual examination (Cracking evaluation) & Hammer Test is performed


after the furnace dryout per SA Form 175-328110, Line Item 26.

C4

At completion of furnace dryout, the lining is randomly checked for voids


or damaged areas by lightly striking it with a 1-pound hammer:
A) The refractory is free of voids (no dead, dull sounds)
B) The refractory has sufficient hardness (when
struck).
C) The refractory has not
disbonded from the equipment surface

SAES-N-110,
Para. 11.3.6

C5

The size of dull sounding areas are investigated & samples test results
are compared before a decision is made on removal of the refractory.

SAES-N-110,
Para. 11.3.6

C6

After Dryout, Refractory found to be defective due to presence of voids,


honeycombs, insufficient hardness, disbond & other damage* is marked
by the Inspector for total removal to full thickness of lining layer.

Inspection of Exterior Surfaces After Dryout

D1

Temporary supports are removed after Dryout, & surfaces have no heat
distortion or mechanical damage from the Dryout operations.

SAES-N-110,
Para. 10.1.2

D2

Inspector checks all heated exterior surfaces closely for evidence of hot
spots, distortion in equipment surfaces, and other related heat damage
after Dryout operations have been completed.

ATTACHMENTS:
1. Attachment 1 -- SA Form 175-328110 Castable Refractories
NOTES:
1. This checklist applies to Furnace Dryout inspection for castable refractory systems detailed in both procedure SAES-N-110 & SAES-N-120.
2. The dryout plan for newly installed refractory includes key control elements to be monitored by the INSPECTOR (API RP936, Section 6.2 ).
A) Heat up/cool down rates for all control temperature indicators
B) The maximum difference between temperature indicators.
C) Heating rates are monitored by thermocouples closest to the heat source.
D) The hold temperatures and durations are achieved at all thermocouples including those at gas exits of the newly installed refractory.
E) When specified by manufacturer, Table 5 of API RP936 shall be used. See Attachment # 2 (Dryout Schedule)
F) When cool down is included in the dryout work scope, cooling rates shall not exceed 150F (85C) per hour.
3. Final visual inspection after furnace dryout identifies Hot or Explosive Spalling (trapped moisture explodes/dislodges refractory) & bloating/bulges.
The Inspector checks low points (floors) for evidence of spalling. Equipment & Low points are absolutely clean prior to dry-out. After dry-out, any
spalled concrete is easily identified by the presence of refractory chunks & debris on the floor or at low points. On finding evidence of such damage,
the Refractory Inspector can call for scaffolding to reach suspect areas for further investigation & any necessary repairs. A usual cause of explosive
spalling is too rapid a heating rate where entrapped water becomes steam & explodes. Bloating (bulges) occur in plastic subsurface lining systems.
