Biazzi wins hydrogenation order in Belgium

By Gerald Ondrey |

Biazzi SA (Montreaux, Switzerland; www.biazzi.com) has just received an order for a large hydrogenation unit from Belgian Oleon N.V., one of the three majors on the European oleochemical scene. After successful tests in the Biazzi laboratories on specific raw materials, Oleon selected Biazzi for their new multi-purpose unit for hydrogenation of specialty fatty acids. The large hydrogenation reactor (over 20m3 useful volume) is fitted with Biazzi’s’s patented internal heat exchange plates providing with an increased heat transfer capacity as well as the proprietary maintenance-free magnetic driven gassing unit which enables a very high mass-transfer during the gas-liquid reaction. The hydrogenation plant includes also a heat recovery system used in the pre-heating phase of raw material as well as a steam generation unit for the cooling of final product leading to an optimal energy management of the whole process.
