The press service of NKNH reported today that they put into operation two new pyrolysis furnaces of SRT-VI type at the ethylene plant PJSC "Nizhnekamskneftekhim". Their construction was carried out as part of the program of modernization and capacity building.
The main advantage of the new equipment is its energy efficiency and environmental safety. Also, their implementation will reduce the consumption of fuel gas and reduce the emission of harmful substances into the atmosphere.
A total of 18 pyrolysis furnaces are currently installed at the ethylene plant: 11 of them are in operation, the rest are in reserve. Two new SRT-VI furnaces will be able to replace 4 old ones, because they have higher power and selectivity. The device of these furnaces allows to increase the yield of target products-ethylene, propylene, benzene and to produce conditioned ultra-high pressure steam.
