Modernization of the cold supply system continues at "Omskykauchuk" PJSC
As part of the modernization of the cold supply system, air-cooling unit was installed at the plant "Omskykauchuk". Its application will make it possible to use the environment low-temperature potential and, as a result, to reduce the electricity consumption by 10% in winter period.
Air-cooling unit (ACU) was manufactured by "Oktyabrskkhimmash" OJSC (Republic of Bashkortostan) and delivered to the plant in summer 2017. Compared with the two units installed in the plant refrigeratingworkshopin 2012, this model is equipped with an automatic temperature control system and has a more advanced design that simplifies the assembly process. The unit has already been installed on the foundation, the works on pipe fitting and service platform assembling are underway. Start of ACU is scheduled for early November. It is expected that the application of the air-cooling unit will allow to save about 15 million rubles a year at the workshop, as well as to obtain an environmental effect by reducing the consumption of refrigerant and industrial return water.
It should be noted that during the replacement of the existing equipment with a more efficient one, two locally produced compressors for screw refrigerant compressor units and two electric driven pump units were installed and commissioned in the refrigerating workshop in the last 12 months.
Technical solution that allows using environment low temperature potential to reduce electricity consumption during periods of the year with sub-zero air temperature is protected by patent right: in April 2015 GC "Titan" received the useful model patent for refrigerating unit.Let us recall that "Omsky kauchuk" PJSC provides Omsk polypropylene plant (joint venture of GC "Titan", SIBUR, "Gazprom-Neft") with the infrastructure.
