Sulfation Plant – Chemical Additive Skid
Services Involved: Electrical, Instrumentation, Process Engineering, Piping Design, Structural
This particular plan in Illinois is a major producer of surfactant used in many personal care products. As a result, plant down time has a premium cost.
Our client utilized an existing additive system in which multiple pumps were operated by a single drive. This setup led to a single point of failure situation, which BSI Engineering was called in to address.
The decision was made to replace the existing system with an innovative skid mounted pumping system using a separate pump for each chemical being added. BSI Engineering designed the skid piping and integrated electrical and instrumentation in a common panel which was mounted on the skid. BSI also accounted for the narrow access door to the area and designed the skid to sit over the existing concrete pump pad, which significantly saved on demolition, installation, and placement costs.
The installation of the skid was performed with no unforeseen difficulties, and the client no longer has to worry about a single mechanical failure disabling his production system.
