The enterprises belonging to the petrochemical industry are perhaps the largest Russian plants in terms of the amount of hydrocarbon raw materials processed and, most importantly, in terms of the number of products produced.
In the production cycles of petrochemical enterprises, there are hundreds of large and small redistributions. At each conversion, dozens of heat exchangers are used. As a result, from 1500 to 3000 units were installed at each large petrochemical combine of heat exchange equipment. And, as a rule, 80% of them are structures of the last century, including Lumus submersible refrigerators, tube-in-tube heat exchangers, shell-and-tube apparatuses of standardized designs.
In turn, the chemical industry is the most insidious and dangerous industry in the world. All technological processes take place in clearly regulated modes. Deviations from the regulations can lead to very serious consequences: both the failure of the technological equipment and environmental disasters.
Heat exchange equipment in the technological chains of petrochemical and chemical plants plays a significant role, and taking into account the fact that heat exchangers for the chemical industry are made, as a rule, from expensive stainless steels or titanium alloys, they form significant budgets at a cost.
The better the heat-consuming heat exchangers (boilers, reboilers, various heaters) work, the deeper they use the heat of heating steam, including the heat of condensate, the less heating steam is consumed to heat a given amount of raw material to a given temperature regime.
The more intensively heat-transfer heat exchangers (recuperators) work, the less replenishment of thermal energy is required at technological stages, thereby reducing the load on the furnace and reducing fuel consumption. Another important issue is also solved: the costs of cooling products leaving the processing facilities are significantly reduced, and in some cases even eliminated before sending them to the warehouse, i.e. cooling devices are excluded from the technological scheme: air cooling devices and various water coolers operating on reverse cooling water.
And if there are some products that, for a number of reasons, cannot be cooled in efficient regenerative circuits, then to reduce the flow of recycled water, it is necessary to switch to intensive heat transfer, while reducing the dimensions of the apparatus and the cost of maintaining them.
All this can be easily done using Lotus intensive heat exchange equipment.
Due to its intensity and low cost, the heat exchangers Lotus pay off in 1-2 years, and subsequently bring their owners an annual income in the form of savings in steam, fuel, cooling water, electricity - and most importantly, they do not require any attention in exchange for the regulated costs of the heat transfer surface of the apparatus Lotus always stays clean and efficient.
Put the solution to your problems in the hands of professionals. Fill out the questionnaire on heat exchangers of existing facilities or reconstructed facilities, tell us what main problem you want to solve when forming our technical proposal: increasing the unit capacity of the equipment or reducing the metal consumption of each unit. We will certainly prepare for you a technical and commercial proposal, which is “impossible to refuse”, and justify the economic feasibility of using our intensive Lotus heat-exchange equipment.
Test our competence, set us the most daring heat engineering task, and we will make every effort to solve it in the most reliable and proven way: through the use of modern shell-and-tube (shell-and-tube) intensified Lotus heat exchangers. And believe me - you don’t have to blush for our technical solution in front of your management or management company.
And if your company has a motivation system in the form of bonuses for saving money when buying or operating equipment, while reducing the heat energy or metal consumption of projects, then you will definitely be given a bonus. You just need to really want to, and submit our decision “with a good sauce” to your in-house programs.
Increasing the intensification of heat transfer, reducing the metal consumption of heat exchange equipment, eliminating the cost of its repair and maintenance will certainly bear fruit in the form of lower unit costs of petrochemical and chemical industries in our country.
