waste heat boilers in a sulfur recovery plant at a refinery in india
Thermax's expertise in WHR boilers for industrial processes extends to sulphur recovery plants. It can offer WHR boiler downstream of main reaction furnace in sulphur recovery plant and has substantial experience in designing and supplying boilers where gas inlet temperature is as high as 1,300oC.

Large quantities of hot gases generated during the combustion of hydrogen sulphide for sulphur production need to be cooled. A major portion of the heat is removed in the fire-tube waste heat boiler, while the remaining heat is removed in the sulphur condensers.

The supply of six trains on 650 TPD plant to Reliance Industries Ltd. (Jamnagar, India) is a noteworthy achievement for Thermax WHR boilers for sulphur recovery.
