Thermax footprint in Latin America
Thermax has now expanded its global presence to Argentina, by recently commissioning a tail gas combustor for Cabot S.A.I.C (a subsidiary of Cabot Corporation).
The installation comprises a natural gas-cum-tail gas (CO) fired combustor, generating 38 MW of hot flue gases by incinerating carbon black tail gas. These flue gases are cooled in a waste heat recovery boiler (supplied by a local vendor), to produce 45 TPH of saturated steam at 22 barg pressure. Thermax bagged the order due to its technical expertise and experience in designing and fabricating the complete system of tail gas combustion (combustor + waste heat boiler). Cabot had prior experience of working with Thermax at one of its subsidiaries, Pt. Cabot in Indonesia in 2006.
With emission norms becoming stringent, tail gas combustion units are becoming increasingly popular and customers are looking for sustainable solutions – reducing pollution at their facilities while generating steam/power in the bargain. Thermax has so far, supplied more than 20 such units to diverse industries.
