Process Plant and Technologies

Kemplant (Pty) Ltd is a chemical engineering company providing engineering, design, supply, project management, commissioning, plant operation & optimisation and similar services for the process industries. It has extensive “in-house” expertise and license agreements for supplying equipment and turnkey plants to a large cross-section of the industry, such as Chemical, Mining, Fine Chemical, Pulp & Paper, Automotive and Pharmaceutical. In particular, we specialise in:

Continuous Forced Circulation, Mechanical Vapour Recompression (MVR), Vacuum Evaporative and Cooling type crystallisers. Refinements include crystal size classification using Classified Bed with Draft Tube and / or Elutriation leg, crystal bed Internal Agitation and other.

Alternatively, where crystal characteristics can vary, Growth type or Mixed bed can be offered.

Batch Vacuum, atmospheric or pressurized Crystalliser Systems can be provided as alternatives to continuous plant, depending on the application.

Falling Film, Climbing Film, Forced Circulation, Mechanical Vapour Recompression (MVR), Thermal Vapour Recompression (TVR), Single or Multiple Effect. Evaporator design can incorporate vacuum, atmospheric or pressured operation; backward, forward and mixed feed, flash and others.

Further refinements include “on-line” cleaning, seeding, etc. For specific duties, Thin-Film Evaporators can be supplied.

Wet and / or Dry Gas /Air Scrubbing/Cleaning Plants can be provided.

Wet Gas Scrubbing includes Venturi (High, Medium and Low Pressure) and Quench Scrubbers, Liquid Jet /Spray Scrubbers, Packed Columns, Tray and Impingement Columns.

Dry Gas Scrubbing includes Ceramic Candle Filtration for high gas temperature solids and / or contaminants removal, cyclonic dust separation and other.

Scrubbing Plants can be supplied on a complete turnkey basis or alternatively specific equipment as required.

Scrubbing media include alkali solutions (caustic, calcium hydroxide, ammonium hydroxide, etc.), acid solutions (sulphuric, hydrochloric and other dilute acids), water, organics, etc.

In certain instances, the recovery of chemical components from the cleaned gases can be achieved such as the production of sulphur recovered from Coke Oven gas using the Mono Claus Process.

Binary or multi-component systems either organic or inorganic using packed columns, sieve trays, bubble caps designs, etc.

Absorption systems include direct contact film or bubble dispersion, pulsed column, membrane and other.

Plate and spiral units (HISAKA, Japan), shell and tube exchangers, re-boilers, condensers, air/gas coolers/heaters, barometric direct contact condensers, etc.

Ammonia, Sulphur Dioxide, Chlorine, Carbon Dioxide, LPG, etc.

Complete system and plant design including turnkey installations to suit client filtration, solid/liquid separation requirements.

Filtration equipment suitable for the application are sourced from specialist filtration equipment vendors and incorporated in the Filtration Plant package provided to the client.

Design, engineering and supply on a turnkey basis of various types of plants and equipment for the treatment of water and process effluents. Each plant or item of equipment is custom designed for the specific duty.

Tank Farms, Mineral and Chemical Processing Plants, Utility/Services Systems e.g. Boiler Plant, Cooling and Chilled Water Systems and other.
