KBR introduces lower cost Ammonia 6000 technology

industry 1827884 640Engineering company KBR has announced that it has successfully developed Ammonia 6000 based on its highly successful Purifier based ammonia technology

The Ammonia 6000 technology uses KBR’s proprietary Purifier based process, which is currently in use in 39 plants worldwide and boasts industry-leading on-stream records and leading-edge process safety and energy efficiency.

The company stated that the KBR’s Ammonia 6000 process helps plant owners stay ahead of the competition by expanding single-train capacity up to 6000 MTPD to exploit economies of scale, increase margins and reduce the cost per tonnes of produced ammonia.

The Ammonia 6000 technology provides both the lowest CAPEX and the lowest OPEX per metric tonne of ammonia produced in comparison to competitive offerings.

The Ammonia 6000 design avoids expensive air separation and nitrogen wash units and utilises an intelligent equipment layout with optimised and reduced equipment count and sizes – all of which help to leverage economies of scale and contribute to reduced capex.

John Derbyshire, KBR president of technology, said, “I am pleased to announce the launch of KBR’s Ammonia 6000 technology that expands the single train production capacity beyond the threshold of just 2700 MTPD.”

“Ammonia 6000 provides fertiliser and chemical producers tremendous performance advantages both in terms of capital investment and operating costs,” he added.
