Hydrochloric Acid Synthesis Unit Design

Share on:

We provided a major chemical manufacturing client with a front-end engineering design package for a new hydrochloric acid synthesis unit for a plant in Niagara Falls, New York. We initiated detailed design activities in January 2013 and continued with a team of up to 20 engineers and design professionals working on the project through November 2014. More than 27,000 person-hours were expended on the project.

The major scope of work elements included:

  • Process flow diagram and piping and instrumentation diagram development
  • Process, mechanical, civil structural, electrical, instrument, and programming design in accordance with client’s corporate design and fire, safety, and environmental standards
  • Process and utility piping design, including piping flexibility analysis on critical lines
  • Layout of the new process and integration into the existing chlor-alkali plant for raw materials (hydrogen and chlorine) and shipping of the finished product
  • All process instrumentation including pressure, level, temperature, flow devices, process safety valves and control valves, PLC programming for the new process interfacing with both existing plant computer infrastructure and the self-contained, vendor-supplied burner PLC
  • Start-up support when the unit was successfully brought online
