Air Products to provide Prism membrane separators in China

LEHIGH VALLEY, US: Air Products’ Prism Membranes division in Saint Louis, Missouri, said that it has received a significant order to provide a large quantity of membrane separators to the Ningdong Energy and Chemical Industry Base in Ningxia, China, for use as part of the Shenhua Ningxia coal-to-liquids project. The membranes will be part of hydrogen purification and recycling operation that is expected to start-up later this year.

“This coal-to-liquids project demonstrates China’s advanced capabilities in the energy industry and we are proud to be part of it,” said Peter Fung, business manager of Permea China Ltd, a division of Air Products Prism Membranes. “The membrane system is designed to process up to 280,000 standard cubic metres per hour of gas flow, which is an important factor in the efficiency of the overall project.”

Impure hydrogen that is produced by processing the coal passes through the membrane system, which removes contaminants and purifies the valuable hydrogen gas for reuse. The Prism Membrane Separators contain polymeric hollow fibers that use selective permeation under differential pressure to separate hydrogen from methane, carbon monoxide, and other hydrocarbons.

Air Products’ Prism Membrane separators are manufactured exclusively at its facility in Saint Louis, Missouri (US) and sold throughout Asia by Permea China Ltd. Since 1977, a team of engineers from Air Products in the US, Belgium, China, and Norway has custom engineered, fabricated, and delivered over 500 process gas systems, the company said.
