Caloric wins its first project in the U.K.  

By Gerald Ondrey |

Caloric Anlagenbau GmbH (Gräfelfing, Germany; www.caloric.com) has won its first contract in the U.K. for a small, industrial onsite carbon-monoxide-generation plant (40 Nm³/h of pure CO). The plant will be delivered to a chemical company in the UK and will be realized as turnkey project within a 15 months schedule. With the Caloric Calor process, CO is produced by reforming of a hydrocarbon (natural gas or LPG) with CO2 at high temperatures and low pressures in the presence of catalysts. A final membrane unit purifies the synthesis gas to the required quality. The Caloric Calcor technology for CO generation is very effective as a low methane content, just within ppm range in the raw gas, allows for a membrane purification unit instead of the more widely used cold box purification. The membrane achieves the same recovery and similar product purity as the cold box but at much more favorable capital and operation cost. The downstream application of this unit will be the generation of phosgene. Again CH4 is an unwanted impurity in the phosgene generator because it form CCl4, which degrades phosgene quality. The skid mounted plant design allows for maximum preparation in the shop and minimum efforts for the on-site installation…
