Maximizing customer benefits in the scorching heat
Lots of work and lots of sweat: RAMPF Eco Solutions and its cooperation par tner Keil Anlagenbau have designed a cutting-edge multi-functional plant for manufacturing polyols for a customer in Dubai. The plant was installed on site – at a temperature maximum of 126 °F.
If the fan in the room has the same effect as an infusion-sauna, then it is really hot.
During his twoweek stay in Dubai, Marco Werth, Director of Sales & Marketing at RAMPF Eco Solutions, had to drastically adjust his personal heat-sensitivity scale. Already on arrival at Dubai International Airport, the thermometer showed 109 °F – at ten thirty at night. By comparison: The highest temperature ever measured in Germany, according to the German Weather Service, was 104.5 °F.
Multi-functional plant engineering maximizes customer benefit
Marco Werth had travelled to Dubai together with his colleague Michael Kugler, Plant Manager at RAMPF Eco Solutions, to install a multi-functional plant for manufacturing polyols based on polyethylene terephthalate (PET), phthalic anhydride (PSA), and polyurethane (PU) / polyisocyanurates (PIR).
This multi-functional plant engineering concept enables the customer, a leading supplier of insulation technology in Dubai, to manufacture high-quality polyols from own PU / PIR waste materials. Ester polyols based on PET or PSA can also be produced on the same plant. “With this multi-functional concept, we’re offering even greater economic and environmental benefits,” Marco Werth points out. This unique offer is made possible by combining the core competencies of the partner companies:
- RAMPF Eco Solutions boasts comprehensive know-how in developing chemical solutions formanufacturing high-quality alternative polyols from PU and PET waste materials.
- Keil Anlagenbau has extensive knowledge in developing and constructing tank farms and recycling, supply, dispensing, and process engineering plants.
Spare t-shirt is a must-have
“The highest temperature recorded during our work at the facility was 126 °F,” reports Michael Kugler. “That’s why the fans were set up in the corner of the room, where they could do little damage and only had the task of drying our spare T-shirts.” Here another comparison: In Death Valley National Park, the highest temperature ever recorded was 133 °F …
