HPD to supply evaporation and crystallization technology to Alkim

By Gerald Ondrey |

Alkim Alkali Kimya A.S. (Alkim; Istanbul, Turkey), one of the world’s largest producers of sodium sulfate, has selected HPD (Plainfield, Ill.; www., a Veolia Water Solutions & Technologies company (www.veoliawater.com), to supply evaporation and crystallization process equipment for their new greenfield plant in Çayırhan, Turkey.   The new plant will produce 120,000 ton/yr of pure sodium sulfate from glauberite, extracted through a unique solution mining process. The HPD system produces glauber salt as a first purification step followed by re-crystallization to an anhydrous sodium sulfate in a multi-effect evaporator to meet stringent quality requirements. The end product is a key component in consumer products, pulp & paper, and the textile industry.     HPD will be responsible for supply of the major process and ancillary equipment, detailed engineering, and a variety of auxiliary equipment such as pumps, tanks, control valves, and instrumentation.
