One of the world’s top fertilizer producers operates a big fertilizer complex in South America. A few years ago, the company started an expansion project that includes three additional phosphoric acid concentration lines. Sulzer was selected to supply the critical evaporator circulation pumps.
Sulzer recently attended the Rio Oil & Gas Expo 2022, where visitors discovered its pumps, 24/7 rotating equipment services and chemical separation technologies. Attendees met with Sulzer experts to see how these solutions can maximize process uptime.
Sulzer has partnered with CELLiCON to scale up its manufacturing technology for nano structured cellulose – a highly sustainable, plant-based alternative to conventional polymers. The technology slashes the traditionally high costs and footprint associated with nanocellulose, allowing it to be scaled and used as a building block for a wide variety of everyday products, from textiles to glues.
The latest in control technology from Sulzer allows pumping stations and wastewater treatment facilities to talk to each other, providing a better picture of real-time conditions and enabling smarter, more proactive management of the whole network.
Pumps, motors, brakes and even battery technology are changing how engineers approach mining applications in 2022. Areas like materials, condition monitoring, maintenance-free components and cost-efficient, zero-emission technologies are trending for mining applications across the globe.
