Acetylene plants

We manufacture and fabricate acetylene gas plants in technical collaboration with “Felice Mandressi Italia”, an internationally reputed Italian company for its superb designs and advanced technology. We use the same designs and technology in building our plants. Acetylene is a highly combustible gas that is colorless and has got garlic-like odor. Our plants come in different capacities ranging from 25m3/hour to 100m3/hour. Our plants are sold throughout the world under the brand name of the Italian company. Our acetylene generating machinery use the advanced technology, impeccable designs and unmatched in their pricing. The plants are fully automated and are low maintenance. Being automated, the machinery does not require a technically qualified operator. A single operator can handle all the functions of the machine. Manufactured using high grade stainless steel, our plants are durable, reliable and explosion-free. Our equipment is thoroughly quality-tested by our quality analysts before it is cleared for export. Components used in the manufacturing of our plants are bought only from the approved vendors.

Our acetylene gas plants are unbeatable in quality, design and technology. Our plants are at par with the best in the world, not to talk of unbeatable prices. Manufacturing and fabrication of machinery is done in compliance with international standards. Being a quality conscious company, we ensure that all our industrial plants are of high quality. Seeing our commitment to quality control processes, all major quality assurance companies have endorsed the quality of our products. We have been given ISO 3001:2008 and CE certifications. Exporters wanting to sell their machinery into the US and the European market require CE certification. Our plants are sold in over 45 countries including Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Yemen, Sudan, South Africa, UAE, the UK, Canada, Algeria, Peru and many more.

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 of Supply of Acetylene Gas Plants :
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.
Condenser
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.
