The plant, with a capacity of 2000 mtpd, is going to use Stamicarbon’s latest granulation technology entailing both investment and operating costs savings and meeting the environmental requirements. The core of this granulation design is the Stamicarbon proprietary granulator.
The key to the success of this technology are the film spraying nozzles, which result in a better quality end-product because the granules are built up layer by layer. Before a new layer of liquid melt is applied on the seed particle, the layer on the particle is completely solidified. Due to the characteristics of the film spraying nozzle, the granulation process results in an end product with excellent quality and properties.
Compared to other fluidised bed granulation processes, considerable OPEX savings are achieved due to a reduced formaldehyde content in the final product and the low dust formation, which results in an operation time of 3 months on average, without any interruption for cleaning.
“Addressing the market challenges, Acron has decided to expand its product portfolio by including granulated urea which is popular among clients. Cooperation with Stamicarbon, the technology leader in the industry, ensures us advanced technologies for manufacturing top-quality product”, noted Alexander Popov, Chairman of Acron’s Board of Directors.
