  • MTBE Plant – Methyl tert-butyl ether (also known as MTBE andmethylethertert-butyl ) is an organic compound with a structural formula (CH3)3COCH3. MTBE is a volatile, flammable, and colorless liquid that is sparingly soluble[1] in water. It has a minty odor vaguely reminiscent of diethyl ether, leading to unpleasant taste and odor in water. MTBE is a gasoline additive, used as an oxygenate to raise the octane number. MTBE is manufactured via the chemical reaction of methanol and isobutylene. Methanol is derived from natural gas, and isobutylene is derived from butane obtained from crude oil or natural gas, thus MTBE is derived from fossil fuels. In the United States, it was produced in very large quantities (more than 200,000 barrels (32,000 m3) per day in 1999) during its use as a fuel additive. In the conventional type of MTBE plants, two catalytic fixed-bed reactors are generally used with attached external coolers that remove the heat of reaction from the reactors. Because the etherification reaction is equilibrium-controlled and a low reaction temperature favors isobutylene conversion, the presence of MTBE in the reaction system and potential temperature gradients in the catalyst beds tend to limit the conversion rate of reactants. Therefore, despite the fact that a two-reactor system provides a higher catalytic area for reaction, the overall conversion rate is generally limited to a range of 90–95%.  More recent etherification systems are comprised of a primary reactor followed by a reactive distillation column in which MTBE product is removed from the reaction system as soon as it is formed. As a result, overall isobutylene conversion of up to 99% is possible. Some products that we manufactured especially for Sulphuric Acid Plant –

  • LNG Plant – LNG is approximately 1/600th the volume of the same amount of natural gas. For LNG, additional processing is required before the condensation of the gas to remove the threat of crystallization in the heat exchangers in the liquefaction plant. Natural gas is liquefied by lowering the temperature of the hydrocarbon to approximately -260 degrees Fahrenheit (-160 degrees Celsius). This temperature drop liquefies the methane present in the natural gas, making transportation at atmospheric pressure in the form of LNG possible. LNG is mainly constituted of methane and generally contains ethane, as well. Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) may also be present in the LNG. Some products that we manufactured especially for LNG Plant –

(SNG). Syngas, or synthesis gas, is a fuel gas mixture consisting primarily of hydrogen, carbon monoxide, and very often some carbon dioxide. The name comes from its use as intermediates in creating synthetic natural gas (SNG)[1] and for producing ammonia or methanol. Syngas is usually a product of gasification and the main application is electricity generation. Syngas is combustible and often used as a fuel for internal combustion engines.[2][3][4] It has less than half the energy density of natural gas. We manufactured this especially for a Gasoline Synthetic Gas Plant –

  • Cold / Cryogenic Service – Cryogenic liquids are liquefied gases that are kept in their liquid state at very low temperatures. The word “cryogenic” means “producing, or related to, low temperatures,” and all cryogenic liquids are extremely cold. Cryogenic liquids have boiling points below -150°C (- 238°F) (Carbon dioxide and nitrous oxide, which have slightly higher boiling points are sometimes included in this category). All cryogenic liquids are gases at normal temperatures and pressures. These gases must be cooled below room temperature before an increase in pressure can liquefy them. Different cryogens become liquids under different conditions of temperature and pressure, but all have two properties in common: they are extremely cold, and small amounts of liquid can expand into very large volumes of gas. The vapors and gases released from cryogenic liquids also remain very cold. They often condense the moisture in the air, creating a highly visible fog. In poorly insulated containers, some cryogenic liquids actually condense the surrounding air, forming a liquid air mixture. Piping Technology & Products manufactured these products, especially for Cold / Cryogenic Service – 
  • Trunnion Bass Ell Supports

  • Light Hydrocarbon Production Facility – The generation of the light hydrocarbon gases, methane (C1), ethane (C2), propane (C3) and the butanes (C4), occurs in three main stages: diagenesis (<50°C), catagenesis (50-200°C) and metamorphism (>200°C) in which only dry gas and ultimately graphite are formed. During the first stage bacteria acting under reducing conditions on organic substrates in sediments form predominantly methane. According to Hunt (1979), about 82% of the methane and practically all the heavier hydrocarbon gases are formed in the next, catagenic stage. Ethane, propane and the butanes are formed in the temperature range from 70°C to 150°C with peak generation occurring around 120°C. Because of their volatility, these light hydrocarbons are generally found in the free pore space. The seepage of hydrocarbons into the near-surface environment above the water table must involve transport through both water-filled and air-filled pores. Sampling these pore gases is obviously one of the most fundamental concepts. However, gases can be found in the sediment matrix. This latter possibility leads to the development of some disaggregation and desorption extraction techniques. Discussion of sampling techniques must involve both “free” and “bound” gases. To facilitate this discussion the collection, measurement and analysis of light (C1-C4) hydrocarbons will be broken into two main categories each with two subcategories: (1) free gas, which can be vapor or dissolved gas; and (2) bound gas, which can be adsorbed gas or chemi-adsorbed gas. Piping Technology & Products manufactured these products, especially for Light Hydrocarbon Production Facility –

  • Offshore Platforms – Once the exploratory drilling phase is over and geologists have determined that a petroleum reservoir is worth the massive expense, oil companies prepare to establish an offshore production platform. These rigs are designed to last decades, often far from land and in some of the most hostile waters on Earth. Construction crews typically build the platforms on a nearby coast and then transport them as needed to the drilling site. Production costs for these vessels typically run in the hundreds of millions of dollars. There are currently seven different varieties of offshore platforms: Fixed Platform, Compliant Tower, Sea Star Platform, Floating Production System, Tension Leg Platform, Subsea System, and Spar Platform. Some products that we manufactured especially for Offshore Platforms – 
  • Single Expansion Joint for an Offshore Deep Drilling Platform

  • Oil Sand Mine – Oil sands are a mixture of sand, water, clay and bitumen found in several locations around the globe, with the largest reserve located in Alberta, Canada. Oil sand can be upgraded into synthetic crude oil and other petroleum products. There are two different methods of producing oil from oil sands: open-pit mining and in situ. Bitumen that is close to the surface (less than 75 meters) is mined. Approximately 20% of oil sands are recoverable through open-pit mining. Open pit mining is similar to coal mining operations – large shovels scoop the oil sand into trucks that then take it to crushers where the large clumps of the earth are broken down. Oil sands mining is only economically viable at depths of less than 75 meters below grade. Oil sands mining fleets are subjected to some of the harshest conditions on earth. Equipment must be able to sustain brutally cold winters, abrasive silica sand, sticky bitumen and unstable ground conditions. Although the very first commercial oil sands mining operations used technology borrowed from the coal mining industry, operators have long since evolved to truck and shovel mining, which is much more efficient and cost-effective. We manufactured this especially for an Oil Sand Mine – 
  • C-Type Variable Spring SupportsN Designed for an Oil Sands Mine

  • Petroleum Refinery – Petroleum refineries convert crude oil and other liquids into many petroleum products that people use every day. Most refineries focus on producing transportation fuels.

  • Nuclear Power Plant – Nuclear plants use the fission process to generate the energy needed to produce electricity. In a nuclear plant, atoms of low-grade uranium are split apart. This creates the heat needed to create steam. The highly pressurized steam then travels through pipes to fan-like blades in a turbine. The turbine begins to turn, causing giant wire coils inside the generator to turn. This creates an electromagnetic field, which forces electrons to move and starts the flow of electricity. Piping Technology & Products manufactured these products, especially for Nuclear Power Plant –

  • Power Generating Facility/Plant – In a generating plant, the potential energy of various types of fuels (fossil, nuclear, or renewable) is converted into another form of energy (usually mechanical or heat energy). Electricity is produced at an electric power plant. Some fuel source, such as coal, oil, natural gas, or nuclear energy produces heat. The heat is used to boil water to create steam. The steam under high pressure is used to spin a turbine. The spinning turbine interacts with a system of magnets to produce electricity. The electricity is transmitted as moving electrons through a series of wires to homes and business. Some products that we manufactured especially for Power Plant –
  • Constant Effort Supports For Generating Facilities

  • Electric Plant – Electricity is produced at an electric power plant. Some fuel source, such as coal, oil, natural gas, or nuclear energy produces heat. The heat is used to boil water to create steam. The steam under high pressure is used to spin a turbine. The spinning turbine interacts with a system of magnets to produce electricity. The electricity is transmitted as moving electrons through a series of wires to homes and business. Boiler Unit: Almost all of the power plants operate by heating water in a boiler unit into superheated steam at very high pressures. The source of heat from combustion reactions may vary in fossil fuel plants from the source of fuels such as coal, oil, or natural gas. Biomass or waste plant parts may also be used as a source of fuel. In some areas, solid waste incinerators are also used as a source of heat. All of these sources of fuels result in varying amounts of air pollution, as well as, the carbon dioxide ( a gas implicated in global warming problems). In a nuclear power plant, the fission chain reaction of splitting nuclei provides the source of heat. Turbine-Generator: The superheated steam is used to spin the blades of a turbine, which in turn is used in the generator to turn a coil of wires within a circular arrangement of magnets. The rotating coil of wire in the magnets results in the generation of electricity. Cooling Water: After the steam travels through the turbine, it must be cooled and condensed back into the liquid water to start the cycle over again. Cooling water can be obtained from a nearby river or lake. The water is returned to the body of water 10 -20 degrees higher in temperature than the intake water. An Alternate method is to use a very tall cooling tower, where the evaporation of water falling through the tower provides the cooling effect. Piping Technology & Products manufactured these products, especially for Electric Plant –

  • CCR Plant – Coal combustion residuals, commonly known as coal ash, are created when coal is burned by power plants to produce electricity. Coal ash is one of the largest types of industrial waste generated in the United States. In 2012, 470 coal-fired electric utilities generated about 110 million tons of coal ash. EPA supports the environmentally sound recycling of coal ash and has developed regulations on the safe disposal of coal ash in landfills and surface impoundments. Coal Ash (Coal Combustion Residuals, or CCR) Coal combustion residuals, commonly known as coal ash, are created when coal is burned by power plants to produce electricity.

    Cogeneration Plant – Cogeneration plants recover the “waste heat” that is otherwise discarded from conventional power generation to produce thermal energy. This energy is used to provide cooling or heating for industrial facilities, district energy systems, and commercial buildings. A cogeneration or CHP plant generates both electrical energy (often measured as power) and heat energy. In its simplest form, this is accomplished by driving an electrical alternator (i.e., an AC power generator) with a turbine or internal combustion engine and capturing the resultant heat (caused by combustion, friction and I2R losses) that would be vented up the exhaust stack or dissipated by a radiator in a simple cycle engine-generator. By converting that heat to useful steam or hot water, a CHP unit can produce combustion efficiencies of 85% or more compared to efficiencies in the mid-30% range for simple cycle generation.
