Air separation unit
Air separation unit has been built to compress and separate air for two different applications in industry. Compressed air is produced to be used in instrumentation equipment, controls, and generic industrial applications. Air separation aims to supply oxygen, nitrogen, and argon to be used in the process productions of customers. The capacity of the compression sector is 33500 normal cubic meters per hour of instrumentation air and 66000 normal cubic meters per hour of service air.
The capacity of the separation sector is 40500 normal cubic meters per hour of gaseous oxygen and 51000 normal cubic meters per hour of gaseous nitrogen.
In the air separation sector of this unit, air temperature is reduced to -194 degrees centigrade. Oxygen and nitrogen are produced via distillation, compressed via a compressor, and stored in tanks as liquids.
