Petrochemicals Oxidations

Air Products is a leader in the supply of oxygen to the petrochemicals industry for the manufacture of several key products. Besides oxygen supply, Air Products can supply key oxygen enrichment expertise for boosting the capacity of existing plants, reducing unit production costs and improving environmental conformance. These are common challenges facing most of the chemical industry. For oxidation processes, the use of oxygen-enriched air or pure oxygen instead of air is a proven, economical and safe way to address these challenges.

Oxygen Enrichment

Enriching or replacing process air with oxygen during combustion reduces the amount of nitrogen in the process. This can help reduce the flue gas volume, improve thermal efficiency, increase throughput rates and reduce energy requirements. Our industry specialists can help you implement oxygen enrichment including providing process modelling/optimisation, HAZOP and start-up support and necessary oxygen control / injection equipment as required drawing on over thirty years of experience with several processes worldwide.
