Enthusiastically received in the market.
One of the many challenges that chemical producers face is how to dispose excess sulphur. As you may know, transporting liquid sulfur is not only inconvenient but above all costly, just like its storage can be. Prilling sulphur can therefore be particularly useful.
Kreber designs, constructs and maintains high-quality prilling equipment for international chemical companies. With more than 50 years of experience, an impressive track record and a top team of researchers and engineers, we can be called an absolute authority in the field of prilling.
Our breakthrough in sulfur prills was enthusiastically received at the CRU Sulphur Conference in Gothenburg Sweden, the most important global event for the sulphur industry.
It’s also useful to know that we have earned our spurs in the prilling of urea, which like sulfur is a important ingredient of fertilizer.
Sulfur prills in bulk offers significant advantages:
- Excellent 'free flowing' properties
- Low tendency to stick and agglomerate
- Distinguished for air lifting
- Highly resistant to abrasion and damage
- Minimal dust formation
- Well suited for transportation in road tankers, containers and big bags
- Excellent for storage in silo installations
- Precise dosage
- No additives needed; pure materials
more control, more profit
Our R&D department has succeeded in developing a method for prilling sulphur, which offers clients the following benefits:
Prilling is one of the most economical finishing technologies in the world for large outputs. Compared with other solidification methods such as granulation and pastillation, CAPEX and OPEX will be multiple times lower at increased capacities.
Prilling makes it easy to scale up or down capacity in a range of 70-110% of the original design capacity. That makes it an extremely flexible part of your total production process. Quickly adapt to changes in the market? With prilling you can.
The high degree of ‘self-control’ makes prilling a robust finishing technology with a very stable processing procedure. It can therefore play a vital role in guaranteeing the continuity of your process and quality of your product.
The prilling process requires minimal energy consumption. In fact: it is the most energy-efficient solidification technology available. This helps you to minimize your operational expenses.
Prilling equipment is easy to operate. Due well defined process operating parameters and small number of equipment items. As a result you benefit from low operating and maintenance costs.
With the design of our prilling tower and additional prilling equipment, you benefit from a relatively small footprint compared to other solidification technologies.
Thanks to a constant stream of technical innovations, such as state-of-the-art air inlet filtration and scrubber technologies, prilling is now a much cleaner finishing technology than it ever has been.
