More than 80% of the world's sulphur (some 40,000,000 tonnes per year) comes as a by-product in the refining of oil and gas. The sulphur is removed as a molten liquid, and then must be processed into a solid form that can be handled both safely and responsibly.
Today's sulphur forming processes can be divided into two categories: premium (GX granulation) and non-premium (wet prilling and slating).
We have experience in designing and operating versions of all of the forming processes being used commercially today, as well as our own patented GX™ granulation system, the industry's process of choice.
We also look to our own Canadian sulphur forming and handling operations for technical field support and assistance in process development. This means that we are running your equipment in our own plants.
Enersul can provide engineering concepts, design and construction supervision for any type of sulphur storage or transport system. We bring 57 years of worldwide experience - under all climate and terrain conditions - to solve a customer's sulphur handling needs.
With an Enersul-designed on-site storage system, plant managers have the flexibility to pace their output to suit customer demand, shipment availability and maintenance schedules. Enersul can also provide bulk storage facilities that minimize product degradation and fugitive dusting open stock piles, silos, bins or sheds and a full range of bulk transporting and handling options.
Enersul has proven credentials in the engineering, operations and design of liquid and solid sulphur loadouts, from low volume road transport to high capacity automated railcar and marine loading facilities. Our systems for handling liquid sulphur meet the unique safety and environmental challenges of this potentially hazardous operation.
Enersul has extensive experience in the design and management of block pouring systems and facilities that are easy to operate and also meet today's stringent safety and environmental requirements. Enersul also supplies pouring towers, forms and pins that are needed for the block pouring operation. We have a full operation for all of your needs.
Before beginning any sulphur pouring operation, Enersul personnel assist clients in a thorough review of the desired pouring specifications, site capacities, climate conditions and future remelt plans, and make provisions for collecting and treating surface water runoff.
Strict operating procedures are observed to ensure both the safety of personnel and Enersul's environmental responsibility. We recognize your needs and also respect having a safe and sustainable process.
Enersul has helped design and manage a variety of block remelting and remediation sites with a consistant focus on safety and the environment. We offer all types of remelting equiptment from in-situ, pit/tank, to Enersul's unique High Efficiency Remelter HEMTM.
Enersul’s design is a culmination of many years of remelter operations and development. We have proven capabilities in difficult remelting situations such as remelting contamination and high moisture feed stocks. While in all ambient conditions our machines still demonstrate low operating and maintenance requirements.
Enersul's patented HySpec Degassing Process uses a gas-liquid contractor which utalizes a series of small reactors and a select catalyst to reduce the H2S content of liquid sulphur to less than 5 ppm in a matter of minutes. The end result is improved formed product friability and increased solid sulphur strength.
The Hyspec degassing plant consists of a compact skid on which the reactors and associated equiptment are mounted. The number of reactors will depend primarily on the liquid sulphur flow rate and initial H2S concentration. The skid can be installed with minor tie-ins and minimal disruption to ongoing operations. As the skid is modular, additional reactors can be installed easily should degassing requirements change.
