Howden equipment is used in both traditional and emerging conversion processes to make petrochemical feedstock
Primary energies can be converted into cleaner fuel or feedstock. Coal (CTO), Methanol (MTO) and non conventional gas and liquids are converted to competitive feedstock for the growing demand of the petrochemical sector. Propane is a growing source and has a specific process to deliver for polypropylene petrochemical feedstock.
A compressor’s typical role within this process is within the make up, recycle, hydrogen feed, gas recovery and process blanketing stages. Howden supplies compression equipment for utility services, such as nitrogen and air networks compressors, pneumatic conveyors, instrument air and combustion air.
Howden fans extract residual gases from process capacities, ensure building ventilation and aeration, and room pressurization. Howden fans are selected to ensure reliable ventilation in crisis situations.
Howden fans and compressors serve process application in Ethylene plants, PDH, SMR, Methanol plant, and olefins storage sites. Our products are used in refrigeration application, air and gas supply, vapor recovery, and conversion processes.
Whether supplied as a stand-alone unit or a compete package, each Howden equipment is designed to match the rigors of its environment as well as its specific task, and engineered to offer continuous uninterrupted operation over many decades.
Howden engineering teams and field engineers have access to our 160 years of learning, meaning we can offer our expertise at every step of the process from product selection to ongoing support. Our worldwide organisation provides local responsive support to end users and customers.
Howden supplies reciprocating diaphragm compressors for the application.
Compress the gas between reaction stages.
Compressors are used to recycle gas back to the adsorbing column in a molecular sieve drying system.
Chilling of Clean wet gas (Ethylene & Propylene Refrigerant compressor).
Ethylene production to recycle the fractionator overheads back to the reactors.
Boil-off gas will be recompressed and recovered to storage via a reliquefaction system or potentially supplied to the plant for other processes. The BOG compressors can be oil injected screw or reciprocating compressors.
Tank vapours are collected and sent to the reliquefaction unit where refrigant compressor serve the unit. Howden supplies screw compressors for the application.
Feed the process with Natural gas to be converted to syngas.
Large Centrifugal single shaft
ASU (Air Separation Units). Vacuum swing adsorption (Air separation) O2 gerenration. Ambient air is drawn through the process with a vacuum generated by a blower. Howden supply root blowers for the application.
Methanol plant/Air, for O2 production. Howden supplies centrifugal fan for the application
Methanol plant/Syngas Makeup. Natural gas is converted to syngas. Howden supplies centrifugal fan for the application.
Howden supplies centrifugal fan for the application
Our lifelong aftercare service will supply original replacement parts, support you with maintenance and installation, and even train your own engineers in maintenance techniques. We keep detailed plant records almost indefinitely, and regularly supply spare parts for machinery over 50 years old.
