  • Sand Plant

    Sand Plant,Sand Processing Plant The sand plant reserve came from a old stream bed, that had a 20 to 30 ft thick sand deposit in it. It was sampled and the lab testing revealed that there was less than 0.03% iron, and a few other metals (TiO2, Al2O3, MgO). The sand plant equipment length of the deposit was over a mile, so ...


  • Co-production of synthesis gas and power by integration of Partial Oxidation reactor, gas turbine and air separation unit

    A new synthesis gas production process based on partial oxidation (POX) of natural gas is investigated. Synthesis gas and mechanical power are generated in a plant that integrates a POX reactor, a synthesis gas turbine and an air separation unit. The synthesis gas is expanded in the turbine which runs the air separation unit. By means of an exergy analysis, it is shown that the synthesis gas ...
