Acetylene Gas Plants

Our company in collaboration with an internationally acclaimed company "Felice Mandressi Italia" designs and manufactures acetylene gas plants. Acetylene is a colorless and highly flammable gas besides having a garlic-like odor. Such equipment comes in different capacities that ranging from 25 m3/hour to 100 m3/hour. Our plants use designs of the famous Italian company and are exported throughout the world under their brand name. Our acetylene gas generators use advanced technology, superb designs and have got the latest features that are not present in the plants and generators available in the market. Plants are fully automated so can be handled by a single operator. The operator does not need to be technically qualified. Since our plants are manufactured using stainless steel, they are long-lasting, reliable and explosion-free. All components used in our plants are bought only from the approved vendors.

We supply and export gas plants that use the latest technology and designs available in the industry. Our manufacturing and fabricating is done in compliance with the international quality norms and parameters. We place high premium on quality of our plants and machinery. For adhering to quality control processes, all major international quality assurance organizations have certified and endorsed our products. We have been awarded ISO 9001:2008 and CE certifications. It is imperative for exporters to have CE certification if they want to sell their machinery into the US and the European market. CE mark on your machinery is a mark of quality. Since our establishment, we sold over 300 gas plants to clients in over 40 countries all over the globe including Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Yemen, South Africa, UAE, the UK, Canada, Algeria, Peru, etc.

Basic principle

Acetylene is commercially produced by the chemical reaction between calcium carbide and water. The reaction generates lots of heat, which needs to be moderated to prevent the acetylene gas from exploding as it is done in BDM acetylene gas plants.

Scope and Supply :
Acetylene generator
The latest and fully advanced acetylene generator is stationary carbide to water automatic generator with twin hoppers. Acetylene is generated as a result of the chemical reaction between calcium carbide and water. The machinery is designed and manufactured to generate acetylene at a pressure of 7 psi.
The condenser works by cooling and purifying the gas thereby condensing the excessive moisture. Cooled water is circulated on the shell side from bottom to top. The condenser is designed and manufactured to suit all local conditions provided sufficient water flow is maintained.
Low pressure dryer
The solid anhydrous calcium chloride at (at least) 80% purity in this pressure vessel soaks up the moisture in the gas. It becomes fluid and is collected at the bottom and drained.
The LP purifier
In the LP purifier, this vessel gets divided into 2 sections by wire mesh framework each section charged of purifying mass. The chemicals in the purifying mass soak up impurities, including H2S phosgene.
Ammonia Scrubber
The component is a vertical vessel of latest design with a level gauge and water make-up line. A particular level as marked on the level indicator, which has to be maintained for efficient working. All the water soluble impurities for instance ammonia are scrubbed/removed in the Ammonia scrubber.
Acetylene compressor
The acetylene compressor employed in the systems is a multi-stage compressor which is immersed in a water tank to shun any pressurized gas to get in touch with air and also to make sure that all the components are continuously cooled for highest safety. It is driven by a flame proof electric motor.
High Pressure Drier
High Pressure Drier Three Stage filled with special packing and anhydrous chloride to remove impurities from the compressed acetylene gas.
Cylinders filling manifold
Filling Manifold with two headers, non-return valves, flashback arrestor pressure gauges and control valve.
Flame proof level controller
Strict usage of accurate and reliable infrared level controller senses high level and low level in accuracy of millimeters and designed for hazardous atmosphere and has very long life. It meets the criterion of CE standards directive.
Instrument Control Panel
Instrument Control Panel is employed for controlling of high and low level pressure monitoring in generator, high and low pressure cut off in the compressor for high safety due to accuracy of pressure transmitters as specified by CE manual.
