CO2 Compressors and H2 converters

IMPROVE YOUR SAFETY STANDARDS, PRODUCTION RATES AND ONSTREAM TIMES
USING THE HIGHLY EFFICIENT SDSµ SEPARATOR AND SDSµ SCRUBBER TECHNOLOGIES

Typically the CO2 compressor in a urea plant forms the bottleneck for higher plant loads; any improvement easily leads to more profits for the company.
Suction and interstage separators applied in CO2 compressors are not very effective: Moisture, oil, methanol and washing fluids from the CO2 desorber column in the ammonia plant cause fouling of the compressor internals, hydrogen converter catalyst and further downstream.

This leads to lower capacities, higher energy consumptions figures, vibrations, higher pressure drops and expensive downtimes.
Some plants perform risky (corrosion, vibrations) online flushing procedures to solve these problems.
