Project Details

Customer Name: Huntsman Corporation
The Brief: Process a chemical waste liquid stream resulting from the manufacture of amines
Location of Installation: Llanelli, South Wales
Products supplied: Thermal Oxidiser and waste heat recovery boiler system
Project Duration: 9 months

The Solution

Firstly to understand Huntsman’s exacting technical requirements and then install a custom designed thermal oxidiser to process the liquid stream at their specialist Bynea plant that they wished to expand.

  • The plant produces amines – a product used in the manufacture of pharmaceuticals, coatings, resins and gas treatment that helps prevent corrosion
  • One of the main products emerging from the process is an epoxy curative used in the manufacture of wind turbine generator blades
  • The project was successfully commissioned and handed over to Huntsman having met all the project requirements including meeting agreed emission limits with the Environmental Protection Agency.

Project Details

Customer Name: Dickinson Legg
The Brief: Provide heat for drying tobacco products and oxidise waste gas.
Location of Installation: China,  Indonesia, Vietnam, South Korea, Turkey, Chile, Germany, Egypt
Products supplied: Thermal Oxidiser and integrated Process Heater
Project Duration: Typically 7 months

The Solution

Tobacco processing is a specialised and highly automated industry; Process Combustion has supplied over twenty Thermal Oxidiser systems for a variety of clients across the globe.

In these installations:

  • The thermal oxidiser helps provide heat into the tobacco drying loop using a recycle heat exchanger. An exhaust stream from the drying loop is supplied to the thermal oxidiser where it reaches a temperature of 800° C to oxidise contaminants. Waste heat is also recovered to pre-heat the waste stream and combustion air.
  • The equipment supplied by Process Combustion typically includes a thermal oxidiser chamber lined with ceramic fibre blocks, a dual fuel burner, fans, fuel gas and oil trains, a recycle gas heat exchanger and a waste gas pre-heater, duct-work, a skid base frame and a burner management system.

Thermal Oxidiser – Scottish Leather Group

Project Details

Customer Name: Scottish Leather Group
The Brief:  Scottish Leather were sending 30, 000 tonnes of waste to landfill each year. Turn that waste into heat and steam for processing leather and heating water
Location of Installation: Bridge of Weir, Scotland
Products supplied: Thermal Oxidiser, Boiler and Gas Clean-Up System
Project Duration:  9 months

The Solution

A thermal oxidiser burns a syngas generated from the gasification process resulting in high temperature exhaust gas. A waste heat boiler was installed that recovers heat and generates the steam from the exhaust gas. The clean-up system also includes a ceramic filter plant and SCR.

  • The plant is a world first in the industry and leads the way in low carbon leather manufacturing. Scottish Leather are high quality, specialist supplier to the automotive and aircraft industries
  • Waste that would have gone to landfill at the rate of 100 tonnes per day is now generating thermal energy, helping reduce carbon emissions and saving Scottish Leather substantial landfill taxes.
