Revamping The Air Compressor In An Ammonia Plant.
MetadataShow full item record
Revamping the compression equipment in an ammonia plant can help optimize plant output and improve overall efficiency. In this case, proper sizing of the revamp is important for optimum results. The reformer air compressor is a primary revamp candidate as shown by the revamp of the air compressor train in an 1150 ton/day (TPD) ammonia plant in Sterlington, Louisiana. This example illustrates the concerns which should be considered when planning such a revamp. The results demonstrate the success of the revamp approach.
