According to Chemical Business NewsBase, the PVC market in the Middle East has potential for growth as a result of new infrastructure investments. Additionally, PVC will be needed for initiatives in the construction, infrastructure, and housing sectors of Saudi Arabia. Both the Middle East and Russia are net importers of PVC.
International Process Plants announces two PVC plants available for sale. Both plants produce both PVC and VCM and are available for immediate relocation to regions that have demand imbalances, including the Middle East and Russia.
The first of the PVC plants is a 170,000 metric ton/year Suspension Polyvinyl Chloride (SPVC) plant. The plant produces rigid and flexible PVC grades. The plant technology includes an antifouling system, slurry effective stripping, “in situ” catalyst, and several other systems designed to improve safety, enhance quality, and keep operating costs low. The major plant equipment includes glass lined Pfaudler reactors, stripping columns, centrifuges, dryers and assorted storage tanks and silos.
The second of the PVC plants for sale is a 75,000 metric ton/year Emulsion Polyvinyl Chloride (EPVC) plant that has been continually updated since it started production in 1988. The production capacity can be increased by 15% through grades mix rationalization and other minor improvements. Major equipment includes stainless steel glass lined reactors, stripping columns, Niro spray dryers, mills, tanks and a complete packing line with filters, hopper, bag fillers and palletizer.
This EPVC plant produces a wide range of high-quality PVC grades covering several applications. The plant technology includes an antifouling system and latex effective stripping. Like the S-PVC plant, this EPVC plant includes several systems designed to improve quality and safety while reducing operating costs. Battery limits include bagging lines for PVC powder, waste water treatment, a control motor center, and air compression section. Operations are managed from a remote control room, by means of a Valmet DCS which runs all plant sections.
