Operational reliability of the equipment at "Omsky kauchuk"was advanced
In May, scheduled repair of one of the reactor blocks was finished at the production area of high-octane additives and liquefied hydrocarbon gases at "Omsky kauchuk" PJSC. The block has already received the raw material and now is in operation.
It should be clarified that this reactor block supplies one of the unit for methyl-tert-butyl-ether production with raw material.
Scheduled works at the block were conducted in the around the clock mode and had been lastingfor 35 days. Replacement of lining (heat insulation) of the rector 6-meter dehydrogenationzonehad become one of the tasks of the repair: 16 t of the refractory concrete were used for this purpose. 11 new packets of the internal (sectionalizing) lattice were installed in the dehydrogenationzone. Process equipment (furnace and 4 water treatment devices), pipelines and fittings connected with the block were also repaired.
Local specialized contractors and maintenance services of "Omskykauchuk" PJSC took part in execution of work. 70 people in total had been working at the site. Day-to-day repair management was carried out by personnel of the plant and GC "Titan" JSC.
The repair works have promoted operational reliability increaseof the block and stabilized end product output.It should be noted that at the moment the plant "Omskykauchuk" continues scheduled modernization of the working equipment. So, at the end of April, at the unit of hydrocarbon raw material preparation, there was the replacement of 10 pumps with the new ones produced in Russia and Moldova. The new equipment provides a full integrity of technological process, maintaining of the purity of pumped product and personnel safety. Energy consumption of such pumps is one third lower than of old ones.
