Energy Conservation Measure implemented in 2006-2007

Title of the measure ID to be filled by BEE Year to be filled by BEE

Heat Recovery from MP Decomposer vapours in Urea Plant by installation of Pre-concentrator.

Sector: FERTILIZERS
Technology: M/s CASALE.

Description of the energy conservation measure:

In Urea Plant the vapour from MP Decomposer was earlier cooled from 120ºC to 75ºC & condensed in MP condenser before recycling back to the reactor. In the process the useful heat of condensation of 9.396 Gcal/h was being lost in Cooling Water. By installation of Pre-concentrator, it has been possible to recover 60% of the useful heat. The vacuum concentrator, as per CASALE design, has been installed in 21 stream of Urea Plant. Preconcentrator is an additional vacuum stage utilizing heat of condensation of Carbamate vapours coming from Medium Pressure. In this scheme, the first vacuum concentrator has been replaced with modified Heat Exchanger in which, in the upper part, heat of condensation of Carbamate vapour coming from the MP decomposer is used for heating Urea solution & in the lower part, Low Pressure steam is being used. LP steam saving to the tune of 210 kg/MT steam, against guaranteed saving of 195 kg/MT Urea, has been achieved. Moreover, Prill quality of urea has also improved.
