Capacity: 112,000 metric tons/year
Year Built: 1982/1992
Year Closed: 2012

Brief Overview: 
  • This PIB facility's manufacturing process produces 112,000 mt/yr of Poly-Isobutylene (PIB) using Amoco technology with aluminum chloride catalyst.  A feed hydrotreating facility was added in 1992 for improved product quality. 
  • The polyisobutylene process plant was shut down in September 2012 and should be cleaned by the end of this year. 
  • This PIB factory also produced methyl tert-butyl ether (MTBE) as a co-product in the past, and MTBE production is an option since all of the MTBE process equipment is still in place. 
  • Over $40 MM has been invested in this plant over the last seven years. 
  • This polyisobutylene production facility can be relocated and restarted with no polyisobutylene process licensing fee required. 
  • There is said to be no environmental issues with the land, which should definitely be confirmed.  There is no asbestos in the plant and no PCBs in the transformers.   
  • The documentation is excellent.  We inspected the original engineering design manuals, operating manuals, P&IDs, PFDs with material balances, utility consumptions, process control documentation, and equipment files.  Engineering was done by Procon, which was a subsidiary of UOP. 
  • PIB production process control is “one generation old” Honeywell TDC3000 and was updated with new hardware and software in 2008.


Major Equipment:  

Main Compressor:  The main process refrigeration compressor is an Elliot model 38M6-5 rated for 11,584 CFM while turning at 5,960 rpm.  It compresses the process gases from atmospheric to 115 psig.  It has a Koppers coupling on both the low and high side of the GE model S225AJ gearbox, which has a ratio of 1 : 5.2903.  The drive motor is a 4,500-hp GE unit turning at 1,200 rpm and feed with 4,000 volts, 554 amps, 3-phase, and 60 Hz power.  It also has an exciter.

Vapor Recovery Compressor:  The vapor recovery compressor is a two-stage Ingersoll-Rand model HSE-2-NL-2 reciprocating unit with a 100-hp drive motor.  It pumps 4,000 lbs/hr (1,570 CFM first stage and 331 CFM second stage) of process vapors from 1.5 psig to 53.8 psig while turning at 459 rpm.

Process Compressor (unused):  There is an unused process compressor that is an Elliot model 38M4-Z rated for 7,218 CFM (8,369 lbs/min of process gases) while spinning at 6,700 rpm.  It compresses the process gases from 128.1 psia to 344 psia.  The drive motor is a 5,500-hp Westinghouse unit turning at 1,800 rpm and fed with 4,000 volts.  The gearbox is a Western unit (1800 rpm in and 6700 rpm out).

Hydrogen Compressor:  The hydrogen compressor in the hydrotreating unit is a Norwalk model TDR-S one-stage reciprocating unit rated for 1,722 SCFM (8,790 lbs/hr).  It compresses hydrogen from 146 psig to 332 psig with a 9-1/2” bore and 12” stroke.  It turns at 240 rpm and has a 250-hp Siemens drive motor.
