Substantial order for Mueller

Published on june 1, 2017


Mueller has secured a substantial order for the supply of 946 Temp-Plates®, for the Kochi Refinery in India. The order was placed by the Bharat Petroleum Corporation Limited (BPCL). The Temp-Plates® will become part of 4 condensers.

A few key figures: 

  • The largest condenser is approximately 5.8 meters in diameter with a construction height of approximately 12 meters and weighing about 170 tons.
  • The condensers are placed on top of refinery columns; the columns are 35 to 50 metres high.
  • Mueller Manufacturing is to supply 946 Temp-Plates in stainless steel grades 316L and 904L. 

A refinery is a plant or unit for processing crude oil into e.g. fuels and raw materials for the chemical industry. Our condensers will be installed in a refinery for the production of acrylic acid, which serves as a raw material for superabsorbent polymers*, among other things.

*Superabsorbent polymers can absorb and retain extremely large amounts of a liquid relative to their own mass and are used in diapers and other disposable hygienic products.
