SINTACLOR process technology

Production of ultra pure HCl by synthesis of Cl2 and H2 for chlor alkali

References : 

  • > 600 units installed worldwide since 1960
  • 9 million t HCl (100%) / year (accumulated contract awards of Cl2 burners)
  • Mainly used with Cl2 and H2 coming from Chlorine Engineers Corp., THYSSENKRUPP UHDE, UHDENORA, ASAHI KASEI, INEOS, …

Sintaclor burner, customer benefit

SINTACLOR is the weapon of choice to obtain ultra pure HCl (< 1ppm free Cl2)

Membranes for electrolysers require ultra pure HCl to maintain the lifetime of the membrane.
Ultra pure HCl is need for Brine dechlorination (to remove free chlorine from the brine) and Brine treatment (for a final acidification of the brine before entering the electrolyser).
