Ethylene Quench Water

Fundamental building block chemical used in the production chain of polyethylene, PVC, styrene, ethylene glycol, vinyl acetate, linear ∂-olefins and a host of other chemical products. Eliminate hydrocarbons in Quench Water system, minimize fouling, provide greater system reliability, lower maintenance, lower energy costs.

  • Quench water contains emulsified heavy aromatic hydrocarbon (SG = 0.975)
  • Cracked hydrocarbons are extremely reactive. Polymerization leads to fouling of quench system, exchangers, dilution steam generator
  • Fouling reduces plant profitability and on-stream reliability
