Phthalic Anhydride Plant - 100,000 TPY

Phoenix Equipment Corporation has this used Phthalic Anhydride plant immediately available. The Phthalic Anhydride Unit consists of three basic areas: oxidation, purification, and utilities. The oxidation area, where the crude Phthalic Anhydride is produced, includes the following equipment: compressors, reactors, switch condensers, circulating oil system and tail gas incinerators. The purification area, where the crude PA is purified to 99.8% assay, consists of decomposers, distillation columns, a separate hot oil system and a distillation incinerator. In addition, there is a large utility system within the unit consisting of various heat exchangers, steam drums and boiler feed water equipment to produce 650#, 450#, 150# and 30# steam. The reaction of orthoxylene to Phthalic Anhydride is highly exothermic and heat is removed from the reactor in two ways: (1) by 450# steam generated at the reactor and (2) by an increase in temperature of the air stream going through the reactor.

Major Equipment
The operating fixed equipment in the PA plant is in very good condition and consists of complete units for the following operations: - Raw Material Storage - Reaction System - Switch Condensers - Oil Circulation - Tail Gas Incinerators - Decomposers - Stripper - Still Columns - Distillation Heater - Distillation Incinerator - Steam System - PA Product Storage
