Veolia to provide crystallization system for Compass Minerals potassium sulfate expansion

By Mary Page Bailey |

Compass Minerals (Overland Park, Kan.; www.compassminerals.com) has selected Veolia Water Technologies (Moon Township, Pa.; www.veoliawaterstna.com) to provide the HPD Crystallization equipment necessary to expand production of its potassium sulfate product at its facility near Ogden, Utah, in the U.S.

The use of Veolia’s HPD-PIC (draft tube baffle) Crystallizer Technology will not only increase total potassium sulfate output, but also provide for a more efficient plant operation. Veolia’s system has been integrated into the existing Compass Minerals plant such that it will allow for higher product yields, achieve higher purity, and use less water due to more efficient recycling within the process.

The project, which began with bench-scale testing at Veolia’s Research & Development facility near Chicago, has completed the engineering phase and currently is in the midst of fabrication. All major and ancillary equipment is scheduled for delivery later in 2015 with startup expected in late 2016.
