Goar, Allison and Associates (GAA), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Air Products, is to present informative technical papers at three upcoming conference events, highlighting the merits of Sulfur Recovery Units (SRU).

With refiners globally facing the challenge of the world’s crude oil & gas supplies becoming increasingly sour, the significance of capital costs, reliability, and performance of SRUs at refineries and gas processing plants grows in importance.

Furthermore, this significance is amplified during difficult economic times, such as those we are currently experiencing.

GAA is a leading supplier of technologies and expertise for the sulfur block and, focused on the challenges ahead, will present technical papers and attend three conferences in the coming weeks and months.

The company has also launched a new streamlined website at www.goarallison.com for operators and designers to learn about successful operating practices and merits of incorporating key SRU technologies at their plants.

GAA has nearly 35 years of experience commercialising SRU technologies in over 20 countries worldwide and Uday Parekh, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, commented, “Customers will find there are capital savings, development of integration opportunities, efficient project execution, and optimised process operations by working with GAA and Air Products.”

“We can address both a company’s sulfur block technology requirements, and engineering and industrial gas supply needs at once.”

GAA and Air Products will have technology experts at three key industry conferences, including the Brimstone Sulfur Symposium in Colorado, the National Petrochemical and Refiners Association Q&A and Technology Forum in Texas, and the Sulphur 2009 International Conference and Exhibition in Vancouver, Canada.
