At the beginning of June, BUTTING successfully delivered a ring burner for its longstanding customer Topsøe. The ring burner with a diameter of 1,200 mm and a length of 3,000 mm is used for the Sohar International Urea & Chemical Industries LLC (SIUCI) project in Oman and is an important component for the production of ammonia. In ammonia synthesis, hydrogen and nitrogen are converted into ammonia at high temperature and pressure with the help of a catalyst.
Ammonia is an important base product of the chemical industry, serving as a raw material for many chemical syntheses. About 80 to 85% is used for the production of various fertilisers while the rest is used for the production of organic intermediate products, plastics and synthetic fibres, among other things. Both the machining of the burner and the final assembly had to take the tightest tolerances into account. Once again, BUTTING was able to show how top-quality performance is achieved with precision and professional expertise.
