Immediately Available For Sale!

  • Stock #600304
  • Located in Germany
  • Designed for the production of synthetic gases from heat value-rich waste, bio-waste and different types of coal.
  • Utilizes Uhde technology for both low-pressure synthesis and distillation.
  • The Uhde low-pressure synthesis loop consists of a recycle compressor, feed/effluent exchanger, methanol reactor, final cooler and crude methanol separator.
  • Process: (Contact IPP for a complete process description)
    • The process is a middle pressure process at 45 bar. The synthesis gas came out from the synthesis gas generation with 24 bar and has been recompressed to 45 bar.
    • The crude methanol, which is condensed downstream of the methanol reactor, is separated from unreacted gas in the separator and routed via an expansion drum to the crude methanol distillation.
    • Water and minor quantities of by-products formed in the synthesis are removed by an energy saving Uhde-designed three-column distillation system.
  • Sections:
    • Fresh gas compressor that supplies the synthesis gas.
    • Gas-cleaning section with (3) catalyst bed reactors to remove impurities from feed gas.
    • Synthesis section for the production of crude methanol.
    • Distillation section for the production of grade AA methanol.
  • Chemical quality to be used in the following:
    • Acetic acid
    • Solvents
    • Vitamin products
    • Formaldehyde
    • Anti-knocking agents
    • Antifreeze
    • Chemical synthesis
  • Major equipment:
