AN-04 – Improving argon recovery
Improving argon recovery in air separation plants
To not only reach but maintain optimum argon extraction efficiency, the argon draw-off mixture must be properly controlled. Plants usually maintain a low level of nitrogen in the crude argon to avoid a halt in production, but this results in poor argon recovery. Our GC Sense Series resolves all this by better controlling air separation’s existing low pressure column. And that means you’ll benefit from higher argon production – and lower overall operating costs.
