In a typical PTA process a mixture containing p-xylene, ethanoic acid, a catalyst system and compressed air is fed into a reactor, where a two-stage oxidation process creates purified terephthalic acid. As a result, precise, accurate and reliable monitoring and control of the oxidation reactions is critical.
By selecting Servomex’s award-winning SERVOTOUGH Oxy 1900 analyser, Jiaxing Petrochemical is able to rely on the unique Paramagnetic oxygen sensor technology for accurate and stable measurements of oxygen. With a non-depleting measurement requiring minimal calibration, the Oxy 1900 was a compelling choice because of its optimisation for hazardous applications including safety-critical oxidation, long lifetime of ownership, and low maintenance costs.
The SERVOTOUGH SpectraExact 2500 analyser is a rugged, highly-flexible multigas solution designed for a wide range of demanding process applications. It combines gas filter correlation and infrared technologies to deliver proven performance in the harshest process conditions, making it an ideal choice for the high-temperature, acidic environments encountered in PTA production.
The high reliability of the existing phase one system was a major factor in Servomex being selected for the next stage of the development, as well as Servomex’s low cost of ownership and long-term reliability in comparison to inferior competitor solutions.
