Formaldehyde is generated through the dehydrogenation or oxidation of methanol under a metal (such as silver or copper) catalysis process and is obtained by the decomposition of a hydrocarbon oxidation product. It is often used as a pesticide and disinfectant, and is the basic raw chemical material for the production of phenolic resin, urea-formaldehyde resin, vinylon, urotropine, pentaerythritol and dyes. Formaldehyde is widely used in the production of resins, plastics, leather, paper and fiber, and is an important part of everyday life.
Helipont has developed new production processes based on traditional formaldehyde production processes, backed by the aid of a number of senior engineers that are consistently seeking to improve production efficiency.Metal Oxide Process
Metal oxide processes are used to produce a high formaldehyde concentration. The catalyst can be used for one year after each regeneration, which lowers costs and makes it a more economical solution.Metal Oxide Process Formaldehyde Plant Project Gallery
The formaldehyde solution concentration produced through the silver catalyst process is 37-42%, reaching 55% with an evaporator. The silver catalyst used in this process requires a regeneration every 3 months, which often leads to higher costs. As a solution, Helipont has innovated and improved on the traditional process by replacing multiple evaporators with a multifunctional evaporator. Off gas absorption equipment designed by us ensures off gas meets direct emission standards, and the steam energy can be reused.Silver Catalyst Process Formaldehyde Plant Project Gallery
Helipont is a solutions provider, implementing engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) projects involving formaldehyde and formaldehyde derivative production operations. We focus innovative efforts on two areas: chemical equipment and chemical trade. Our silver catalyst formaldehyde production process and related equipment has been successfully implemented by some of the world’s premier chemical processors, helping them minimize operating costs and handle by-products safely and effectively.Read More
