Everest Sciences announces Cherokee Nitrogen order

Everest Sciences Corp. has announced it received an order for, and has shipped and achieved successful operations of the CleanChill cooling system at Cherokee Nitrogen of Cherokee, Alabama. This is the second order from LSB Industries’ Cherokee plant.

“Cherokee Nitrogen recognised early on that adding suction air chilling to its air compressors will increase production during hot, or even warm months of the year,” said Gary Hilberg, President of Everest Sciences. “Our CleanChill solution is increasing production on their Ammonia train, demonstrating the value of Everest Sciences’ technology and, along with additional orders from other chemical processing companies shows the momentum Everest Sciences has achieved in this market segment.”

CleanChill is a gas turbine and air compressor cooling solution that provides chilled inlet air, allowing the turbine or compressor to operate at greater output and efficiency during higher ambient temperatures. As a complement to the company’s ECOChill and ECOCool solutions, CleanChill offers an alternative, direct chilling approach, which uses the company’s market-leading technology and expertise in process cooling.

The modular CleanChill system was factory fabricated, and installed successfully at Cherokee Nitrogen.

Cherokee Nitrogen LLC operates a 160 acre, multi-product facility on a 1300 acre site located on the bank of the Tennessee River in Cherokee, Alabama. The company produces a wide variety of industrial and agrochemical products including anhydrous ammonia, nitric acid, ammonium nitrate, urea, and urea ammonium nitrate.

“We are excited to be working with Everest Sciences again, after the successful implementation of their ECOChill solution on our nitric acid plant,” said Ben VanVeckhoven, General Manager at Cherokee Nitrogen. “We are confident that their solution will allow us to increase our Ammonia plant production above that we previously achieved with a rental cooling unit.”

Everest Sciences production enhancement solutions provide a factory packaged system for its customers in the chemical industry that efficiently create cooler, denser air which debottlenecks their air machines, leading to significant increases in full year production. These solutions have proven to have paybacks of less than one to three years.
