AIR SEPARATION PLANTS

An air separation plant separates atmospheric air into its primary components, typically nitrogen and oxygen, and sometimes also argon and other rare inert gases.The most common method for air separation is cryogenic distillation. Cryogenic air separation units are built to provide nitrogen or oxygen and often co-produce argon. Other methods such as membrane, pressure swing adsorption (PSA) and vacuum pressure swing adsorption (VPSA), are commercially used to separate a single component from ordinary air.

We offer Air Separation Plants which designed to meet each customer’s specific purity levels from 90% to 99%, pressure and flow requirements for a fraction of the cost of delivered gas. And we provide a broad range of after-sales services and support including maintenance contracts and spare parts.

Ebkar Co. offers the following options:

Pressure Swing Adsorption (PSA)

 PSA provides separation of oxygen or nitrogen from air without liquefaction. The process operates around ambient temperature; a zeolite (molecular sponge) is exposed to high pressure air, then the air is released and an adsorbed film of the desired gas is released. The size of compressor is much reduced over a liquefaction plant, and portable oxygen concentrators are made in this manner to provide oxygen-enriched air for medical purposes. Vacuum swing adsorption is a similar process, but the product gas is evolved from the zeolite at sub-atmospheric pressure.

Cryogenic Air Separation Plant

Separation of gases using Cryogenics applies to a range of molecules with a boiling point from -40°C to -270°C. Depending on our customer’s needs, we can tailor a design to their exact specifications or propose a Standard Plant. These are highly-packaged, modular, skidded units, easily integrated into existing or future industrial plants.

Membrane System

Membrane systems can provide alternate, lower-energy approaches to air separation. For example, a number of approaches are being explored for oxygen generation. Polymeric membranes operating at ambient or warm temperatures, for example, may be able to produce oxygen-enriched air (25-50% oxygen). Ceramic membranes can provide high-purity oxygen (90% or more) but require higher temperatures (800-900 deg C) to operate. These ceramic membranes include Ion Transport Membranes (ITM) and Oxygen Transport Membranes (OTM). Air Products and Chemicals Inc. and Praxair are developing flat ITM and tubular OTM systems, respectively.
