DuPont Clean Technologies (DuPont) will be focusing on topics that are of critical importance to members of the sulfuric acid industry at this year’s Sulphur 2019 conference: the future-proofing of emissions management, as well as plant expansion and optimisation.

Delegates at CRU’s Sulphur & Sulphuric Acid Conference 2019 are gathering in Houston from 5 – 7 November 2019 to discuss the latest industry developments and find answers to the challenges they face.

Eli Ben-Shoshan, President of DuPont Clean Technologies, will take part in a panel discussion about emissions management on the opening day of the conference. “The impact of industry on the environment is a topic that we all need to address,” Ben-Shoshan comments. “All industries are under pressure to consider what more can be done to limit their footprint. We need to look at ways to future-proof operations with advanced emissions control technologies.”

In a workshop on Day 2 of the conference, CRU Technical Adviser and MECS® Global Licensing & Technical Manager Garrett Palmquist will discuss heat recovery from acid plants in a specialist panel event. This session on 6 November will consider engineering, operation and maintenance of heat recovery systems and the merits of different approaches that are designed not only to recover energy, but also to reduce corrosion and mist generation.

A separate presentation on 7 November will focus on the use of gas sampling to optimise the performance of catalytic reactors in sulfuric acid plants and the choice of innovative, high-performance catalyst.

Later the same day a paper, presented by Evan Uchaker and Steven Ziebold of DuPont Clean Technologies, will highlight a debottlenecking solution for capacity expansion. This presentation also marks 60 years since the introduction of Brink® mist eliminators, a revolution in the capture of submicron mist particles from vapour that has been used successfully in thousands of installations worldwide.

“DuPont Clean Technologies is once again a gold sponsor of CRU Sulphur and Sulphuric Acid as we view this event as a platform for the industry to come together to debate and solve emissions and plant performance questions,” said Kirk Schall, Global Business Manager, Acid and Scrubbing Technologies, DuPont Clean Technologies. “As a company that has been serving the industry for more than 90 years, we are sensitive to industry needs and keen to make the most of opportunities such as this one to discuss and further developments that benefit our customers, the communities that surround them and the environment as a whole.”

Serving the phosphate fertilizer, oil and gas, chemical and nonferrous metals industries, the MECS sulfuric acid technology encompasses engineering design, services and high-performance products. MECS technologies feature breakthrough solutions, many of which have revolutionised performance, quality and cost-effectiveness, such as MECS heat recovery systems (HRS™), MECS SolvR® and MECS MAX3™. Integrated into the MECS sulfuric acid technology are proven and reliable specialty products specifically designed for this demanding operating environment such as acid catalysts, Brink mist eliminators, DynaWave® scrubbers, ZeCor® corrosion resistant alloy products, and acid coolers.
