Sample text

It is also found that, rather than a separate circulation tank for the oleum, an extension of the lower boot of the oleum tower with a submerged type circulation pump is safer and easier to operate. Appropriate sealing at the pump base frame prevents any escape of acidic vapors from the tank. A single oleum tower can produce about 40–50% of the total output from the plant as 28–30% oleum. Two oleum towers in series are used (the second tower operating at a lower strength) if most of the plant output is to be produced as oleum.

Chloro-oleums 8. Sulfamic acid 10. Methane sulfonic acid Outotec from Germany are suppliers of technology for large size (5,000 tonnes per day (TPD)) sulfuric acid plants and have innovated processes for sulfonation. See Appendix. Outotec have developed the Hero process which should also be considered for sulfonations. 1 Introduction Until the mid-1950s all sulfonations were carried out using sulfuric acid of different strengths. The reactions carried out by sulfuric acid were unable to give the conversion efficiencies that were economical, especially in the manufacture of detergents.

5 gives an overview of techniques that have a positive effect on, that is reduce, the emissions of H2SO4 (taken as the sum of SO3 and H2SO4) during the manufacture of sulfuric acid. Most sulfuric acid plants have taken general primary optimization measures like process control measures. 1 History Earlier designs of sulfuric acid plants preferred minimizing initial capital cost and hence heat recovery equipment was not common. For example, these designs had atmospheric cooling ducts, air cooled heat exchangers, or air injection facilities instead of waste heat recovery boilers and economisers.
