The company’s polymerization process is carried out in a reactor where additives are added from the top of the reactor. During the periodic cleaning some build-up material is difficult to remove, leading to product losses and increases in cleaning time.
Investigations revealed that injection of the additives from the bottom instead of adding it from the top eliminated the build-up of material on the reactor walls and led to cost savings in terms of time and material as well as increasing worker’s safety.
