Solids Separation & Catalyst Reclamation
Chemical Manufacturing Process Superheating Solution
A major Petro-Chem processor producing polymers & monomers needed to treat their wastewater stream before returning to the ground. Solids needed to be separated and catalysts reclaimed. The wastewater was heated prior to their 25,000 gallon reactor. The existing inline heater could not reach required separation temperatures which limited processing time in the reactor which extended hold times in the reactor. The limited reactor processing time negatively impacted plant production as the process was continuous and was dependent on the rate of wastewater processing in the reactor. By installing an I-Series steam injection heater, proper separation temperatures were reached increasing wastewater reactor processing. This led to an increase in the plant’s production time by over 200%.
