Zhongfu Lianzhong China delivers copper smelting flue gas desulfurization project in India

Zhongfu Lianzhong announced that it has successfully delivered in December 2023 the Adani copper smelting flue gas desulfurization project in India, marking another solid step taken by the company in the export of large-scale FRP equipment. The project includes 12 FRP desulfurization towers, the largest of which is 11.4 meters in diameter and 30 meters high, all built by Zhongfu Lianzhong.

Zhongfu Lianzhong implements high-quality production concepts, puts safety and quality first, uses finite element analysis, and is committed to making the project a model for the copper smelting industry, continues the announcement. During the project execution, all technical, quality, safety, and production personnel stationed on site. They start calculations and analysis from the design stage, and formulate strict production processes and procedures to ensure project delivery. The FRP desulfurization tower involved in the copper smelting flue gas desulfurization project has diverse designs and complex internal structures, especially the production of the sloping bottom. Once the force is uneven, it will affect the subsequent flipping and hoisting work. In order to improve the success rate of flipping and hoisting, technicians used three-dimensional visual design mode throughout the process to innovatively design anti-slip support beam structures, anti-sway and anti-flow mesh sloping bottom structures, integrated hoisting and flipping structures, etc., from production, assembly, land transportation, sea transportation. A new structural design was carried out for the desulfurization tower considering all aspects of hoisting, installation and use, and a new flipping and hoisting plan was developed. Finally, the overall smooth flipping and hoisting of the 300-ton FRP desulfurization tower was completed in one go. Zhongfu Lianzhong has more than 30 years of experience in the design and manufacturing of FRP pipe tanks, possesses internationally advanced complete fiber winding equipment technology, and has the ability to design, develop and test composites pipe tanks. It has exported FRP products in batches to more than 20 countries and regions. Serving petrochemical, electric power, food, environmental protection and other fields, it can customize various fiberglass products for customers. The FRP desulfurization tower delivered this time is an environmentally friendly equipment with high desulfurization efficiency and processing capacity. It plays an important role in industrial production. The application of this equipment helps reduce the emission of atmospheric pollutants and contributes to the ecological environment protection.
