The new granulation plant will be built based on the same design as Acron’s first granulation plant, successfully commissioned in 2020 despite the challenges presented by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. “The startup of the unit went quickly and without any technical problems,” said Vladimir Trunov, Deputy Director General for organisation and support of projects at Acron Engineering Research and Design Center. “The granulation unit promptly reached guaranteed parameters.”
“Since the start of its operation in the summer of 2020, the granulation unit has demonstrated excellent performance, both in terms of process reliability and equipment – the granulator,” said Sergey Abramov, Licensing Manager at Stamicarbon. “Acron appreciated our technology and as a result chose Stamicarbon for the second unit of the same design and capacity.”
The second plant will use Stamicarbon’s latest granulation technology, which offers both investment and operating cost savings, whilst meeting environmental requirements. The core of this granulation design is the Stamicarbon proprietary granulator.
Film spraying nozzles help to build up the granules layer by layer, resulting in a better-quality end-product. Considerable OPEX savings are achieved due to a reduced formaldehyde content in the final product and low dust formation. This results in an average operation time of 3 months, without any interruption for cleaning.
