establish Vacuum Bottom processing plant:
Feedar Esfahan #Manufacturing Co. Is a member of the union of a exporters of Oil, Gas and Petrochemicals in Iran which
is operating under the supervision of Iran’s Chamber of Commerce. It has been active in the manufacturing of steel drums as well as being one of the main exporters of bitumen grades 60/70, #80/100, #40/50 & 30/40& 50/70 for more than 10 years.
Considering its reputation and more than a decade of experience with major government owned bitumen producing refineries such as Isfahan, Tehran, Shiraz & Arak refineries ,Feedar Esfahan Manufacturing Co. is planning to expand it’s facilities and looking to establish a Vacuum Bottom processing plant in order to produce bitumen grades 60/70, 80/100, 40/50, 30/40& 50/70.
We have consulted many experienced experts in the field of bitumen production toward establishing our refinery according to the latest and most up-to-date safety and environmental standards approved by Iran’s Environmental Organization. This great project has the potential to create many new job opportunities as well as help Iran’s economy significantly.
What is vacuum #distillation?
Vacuum distillation of petroleum hydrocarbons is a well-known refining process commonly utilized in the industry to minimize thermal cracking of heavier fractions of crude oil and obtain lighter desired products. Distilling these heavier materials under vacuum, that is lower pressure, decreases the boiling temperature of the various hydrocarbon fractions in the feed and therefore minimizes thermal cracking of these fractions. In conventional vacuum distillation systems, distillation is carried out in a vacuum column under pressures typically in the range of 25 to 100 millimeters of mercury (mmHg). It is important in such systems to reduce pressure as much as possible to improve vaporization.
