Furmanite foils fugitive fertiliser
CUSTOMER: Kemira Agro UK Ltd, Ellesmere Port, United Kingdom
Kemira manufactures agricultural fertilisers, involving the production of ammonia, nitric acid and ammonium nitrate. Temperatures reach 1200C in parts of the process and pressures reach 240 barg. The corrosive nature of nitric acid and other solutions on site causes pipeline corrosion, and the high temperatures and pressures involved necessitate a fast response to repairing leaks.
