Nalco Champion treats more compressors than all our competitors combined. When ethylene plants target ever-increasing run lengths, compressor performances can become process bottlenecks that require chemical treatment. We apply years of knowledge and experience to create unbeatable chemistries and monitoring tools to combat fouling and corrosion, including our Comptrack™ compressor efficiency monitoring software.
The charge gas compressor is the heart of an ethylene plant. Fouling in a compressor directly threatens the plant’s overall run length. A decline in polytropic efficiency due to fouling can cost producers millions of dollars in terms of increased energy consumption, reduced throughput and lower ethylene yield. Corrosion in a charge gas compressor and its associated interstage coolers also compromises the unit integrity and reliability.
To combat fouling and corrosion issues in a compressor train, Nalco Champion offers:
With close to 100 applications globally, Nalco Champion antifoulant technology has helped global customers maintain top notch compressor performances over the past 30 years.
Corrosion Inhibitor Nalco Champion formulates its corrosion inhibitors specifically for compressor applications.
Industry Benchmarking Our unique position as a leading solutions provider for compressor treatment allows us to benchmark global compressor performance with our proprietary compressor fouling index.
ComptrackTM Compressor Efficiency Monitoring Software Our Comptrack™ software compensates for water addition in its polytropic efficiency calculation and compares actual efficiency versus design.
