Hangzhou Fortune have just announced that they have received an order for the largest single nitrogen generation unit of 56,000 Nm3/h, the largest of its kind in Asia to date.
The unit is to be installed at the Qinghai Ganhe Industrial Park and to supply nitrogen to a project that produces olefins from tail gas.
The unit, scheduled to be commissioned in November this year, will feature a 65000 Nm/h air booster-turboexpander which is also the largest to be used in a nitrogen generator in China. The press release also mentions that the process has been optimized and a new technology is applied so that the air flow of the air compressor is reduced. The generation unit will also produce 30 tonnes of liquid nitrogen each day and a storage and back up vaporization system will be included in the scope of supply to ensure a continuous nitrogen supply to the project.
In 2016, China manufactured 2.1 billion sets of mobile phone, a 13.6% increase from 1.81 billion sets in 2015, and a one billion units increase over five years. This is just a simple example of how the electronics industry in China is booming, at an astounding rate.
Air Products is to build several large air separation units (ASUs), hydrogen (H2) and compressed dry air plants and a bulk specialty gas supply yard in Western China as part of a contract with Samsung Electronics’.
