Information

Problem:

     The vent gas from resin degassing bin typically contains ethylene/ethane, heavy hydrocarbons (such as 1-butane, iso-butane, pentane and hexane etc.), hydrogen and huge amount of nitrogen in PE plant. The hydrocarbons and nitrogen losses in the vent gas are close to US$ 1.2 -2.0million/y (for a 300 KTA PE plant)

      Especially in Unipol or Innovene PE process, Eurofilm's unique "Mem-Cryo" patented technology (US 10,456,728 B2 issued in 2019), integrating gas separation membrane with expander-based cryogenic technology, recovers not only more than 98% heavy HCs and 60% N2, but also more than 80% ethylene monomer. The payback time is normally less than 1-2 years based on long-term experience of tens of Mem-Cryo units installed.

 

Application in the following processes:

• Unipol of Univation (USA)

• Innovene of INEOS (UK)

• MarTECH® ADL of Chevron Phillips (USA)

• Hostalen of Basell (Swit)

 

Performance:

• Ethylene recovery: 80-90%

• Ethylene purities: up to 70 mol%

• Heavy HCs recovery: 90-99+%

• Heavy HCs purities: up to 99+ mol%

• N2 recovery: 70-80%

• N2 purities: 90-99+ mol%

 

Operating Characteristic:

• Min. operating temperature: lower to -120°C

• Max. operating pressure: up to 25 barg

 

Scope of supply:

• Compressor

• Condenser

• Refrigeratior (upon request)

• HCs membrane unit

• H2 membrane unit

• Cryogenic (upon request)

 

Standards:

• Compressor: API 619

• Lubrication, Shaft-sealing and Oil-control Systems and Auxiliaries: API 614

• Machine Protection Systems: API 670

• Mechanical Seals and Supply Systems: API 682
