0298 Multicomponent Gas Analysis Reduces Product Overspending in Ammonia Production_ KAZAZOT_ Tarbanov

KazAzot is the only ammonia producer in Kazakhstan, the most important product of the chemical industry, most of which is used for  fertilizers production. The company also produces nitric acid & ammonium nitrate. In 2015 the company decided to increase production volumes & modernize it according to the requirements of the industrialization program in the country. Ammonia is obtained from the interaction of hydrogen and nitrogen with the preliminary evolution of hydrogen during the conversion with steam from natural gas containing methane. This requires an accurate analysis of the gas-base mixture. Constant monitoring of the ratio of hydrogen and nitrogen in a ratio of 3/1 provides a large conversion of the hydrogen-nitrogen mixture to ammonia and optimizes the cost of the final product
