Low Pressure Drop Design for Shift Converter

By improving the internals in catalyst vessels, the way the inlet gas is distributed inside the catalyst and the way the exit gas is collected at the end of the catalyst bed are improved. In this way, the pressure drop across the catalyst can be reduced. Reduced pressure drop can reduce the energy use per tonne of product and/or increase the plant throughput. With the use of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and other advanced techniques, the design of internals has been significantly improved (A2A Toolkit).

Assessment to Action (A2A) Toolkit

Developed by IIP, in collaboration with energy expertsat ICF Marbek, members of the IFA and experts in China, the A2A (Assessment to Action) Toolkit is a free suite of resources on energy management and technology best practices created for ammonia companies. The A2A Toolkit provides a first-order, high-level assessment to identify and prioritize energy efficiency opportunities. It does so by drawing on various assessment modules on technical best practices, management best practices (based on ISO 50001 standard) and productivity improvements.
