KBR Introduces New Highly-Efficient, Lower Cost Ammonia 6000™ Technology

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 5/7/2019, Location: North America

KBR, Inc. (KBR) has successfully developed Ammonia 6000™ based on its highly successful Purifier™ based ammonia technology. The Ammonia 6000™ technology uses KBR's proprietary Purifier™ based process which is currently in use in 39 plants worldwide and boasts industry leading on-stream records and leading edge process safety and energy efficiency.

KBR's Ammonia 6000™ process helps plant owners stay ahead of the competition by expanding single-train capacity up to 6000 MTPD to exploit economies of scale, increase margins and reduce cost per ton of ammonia produced.

The Ammonia 6000™ technology provides both the lowest CAPEX and the lowest OPEX per metric tonne of ammonia produced in comparison to competitive offerings. The Ammonia 6000™ design avoids expensive Air Separation and Nitrogen Wash Units and utilizes an intelligent equipment layout with optimized and reduced equipment count and sizes – all of which help to leverage economies of scale and contribute to reduced CAPEX.

"I am pleased to announce the launch of KBR's Ammonia 6000™ technology that expands the single train production capacity beyond the threshold of just 2700 MTPD," said John Derbyshire, KBR President, Technology. "Ammonia 6000™ provides fertilizer and chemical producers tremendous performance advantages both in terms of capital investment and operating costs."

A world leader in developing designs for single-stream, large-scale ammonia plants, the technology for the world's first 600 to 2700 MTPD single-stream plants were developed by KBR. Since the 1960s, KBR has licensed, engineered or constructed more than 235 Ammonia plants worldwide.
