Compabloc cuts steam consumption in aromatics plant

PTT Global Chemical (PTTGC)increased heat recovery in a preheater for a distillation column in one of its aromatics plants by replacing a shell-and-tube heat exchanger with an Alfa Laval Compabloc. The result was 10% lower steam consumption in the column’s reboiler and lower maintenance costs. PTTGC is very satisfied with the results and feels confident in using Compabloc for upcoming heat recovery projects.
