Aker Solutions has been awarded a contract for the supply of an anodically protected, proprietary sulphuric acid cooler to Foskor Ltd, one of the world's largest producers of phosphate and phosphoric acid. The acid cooler is a proprietary design of Aker Solutions and will be supplied to Foskor's phosphoric acid facility in Richards Bay, South Africa.
Aker Solutions has supplied more than 1400 proprietary acid coolers over the last 40 years. Developed to improve plant reliability and reduce plant foot print, Aker Solutions' acid coolers deliver long periods of uninterrupted plant operation; compact plant layout; vastly reduced maintenance; greatly improved acid quality and the ability to recover sizeable quantities of valuable low grade energy. The acid cooler will be manufactured at Aker Solutions' Pickering, Canada facility.
Johan Cnossen, Senior Vice President, Europe, Middle East & Africa region with Aker Solutions' Process and Construction business area said, "Aker Solutions' position as the leading supplier of sulphuric acid cooling technology has emanated from our focus on every quality detail during fabrication and our understanding of the plant operators' requirements. Through our Johannesburg operation we can extend supply of this successful product into Southern Africa, whilst ensuring a strong local service."
