Sulphur
The magazine for the sulphur and sulphuric acid industries


January/February Issue

⇒  SulGas 2021 Virtual Conference

  • Phosphates – can China balance the market?
    China is the biggest producer of phosphates globally, but production has dropped sharply due to a crackdown on polluting plants. However, it remains to be seen whether this can balance increased production expected from North Africa and elsewhere.
  • Refining – dealing with the Covid crisis
    The refining industry has been hit hard by Covid, with demand from shipping and aircraft falling sharply and many fewer road vehicle miles being travelled. With stocks at record levels, it could be some years before a full recovery is seen.
  • Canada’s sulphur industry
    Canada remains a significant exporter of sulphur, with production from oil sands processing replacing its declining sour gas industry. But oil sands production is also under pressure from environmental concerns and low oil prices.
  • Sulphuric acid catalysts
    Innovations in sulphuric acid catalyst formulation to boost catalyst activity and increase conversion rates together with optimum tailoring of catalyst loading are helping to meet the continuously increasing demands on sulphuric acid plants, providing faster plant start-ups, longer operational periods without shutdowns, lower emissions and lower energy consumption.
  • Solving operational problems in the SRU with simulation
    Simulations have become increasingly important to predict and properly manage sulphur recovery units in gas plants and refineries, particularly when faced with challenges such as changing feedstocks, aging equipment, degrading catalysts and suboptimal operations due to inadequately controlled temperatures.
  • Preventing or extinguishing molten sulphur tank and pit fires
    Fires are known to occur in sulphur storage pits and tanks due to the presence of both flammable material and air so methods for preventing and extinguishing these fires are critical. In this article Trimeric reviews some of the fire suppression methods used in the industry. The benefits and limitations, design considerations and recommended guidance for each fire suppression approach will be discussed.
