Main industrial gas processes
When it comes to industrial gas we are dealing with several processes such as very demanding PSA (Pressure swing adsorption), VSA (Vacuum swing adsorption) and TSA (temperature swing adsorption) which require a perfect tightness with high cycle and fast response for the more demanding ones. Due to the high cycling process and shorts shutdowns special attention need to be put on maintenance programs and spare parts availability.
HyCO (Hydrogen & Carbon monoxide) plant produces hydrogen and carbon monoxide by reforming natural gas at high temperature. They are equipped with PSA to purify the produced hydrogen. Steam is also produced for process purposes. In this process valves are working in severe conditions, under high pressure and temperature and special attention is needed on steam, fuel, reformer feedstock and synthesis gas valves.
ASU (Air Separation unit) plant separates air into its primary components, end products being nitrogen, oxygen and several rare noble gases like argon, helium, krypton or xenon. The most common technology in this separation process is cryogenic distillation, which requires multiple stages of compression, purification, cooling and distillation. The major challenges of this multistage process are severe operational and environmental requirements, high range of temperature from very cold to hot and oxygen enriched atmosphere.
These plants are continuously supplying pure gas to refineries and chemical industries and need to be reliable at all times. Every unplanned shutdown has big consequences for product availability as well as financial profits.
The challenge in industrial gas production is to maximize uptime and uninterrupted supply of gases while ensuring safety, efficiency and profitability.
Reliable production is one of the fundamental parameters in fulfilling the contractual responsibilities for Industrial gas producers.
