SIAD MI Sending Four Compressors For Russian Plant

By DJ Slater14 July 2020

A polyethylene plant in Russia has ordered four compressors from SIAD Macchine Impianti (SIAD MI). The plant serves as a naphtha cracker that breaks down heavy hydrocarbons into simpler molecules (ethylene, propylene and butene) for use in producing plastics.

SIAD MI’s contribution consists of two hydrogen HPS2-1 make-up compressors, designed to compress hydrogen mixed with feedstock gas inside the reactor. The plant will pair those two compressors, each providing 600 kW, with an HSFS3-3 nitrogen compressor and a WS1-2 instrument air compressor.

The plant, currently under construction, is owned by one of the largest petrochemical companies in Europe.
