Polymer Plant for the Chinese Province Nigxia
GIG Karasek received the contract for construction of two production plants in Ningxia / China for Younglight Chemicals Co. Ltd. The Chinese company, belongs to one of the five largest energy suppliers in China and is specialized in manufacturing high quality polymers for the textile industry. The plant is designed for a product capacity of 92,000 tons/year PTMEG (polytetramethylene ether glycol).
PTMEG is an important raw material for the synthesis of textile fibers and is characterized by high elasticity. You can find such fibers for example in functional sport clothing for sports.
GIG Karasek’s scope of supply includes the basic and detail engineering, two short-path evaporators and wiped film evaporators including cooling and vacuum systems, as well as the assistance by assembling and commissioning of the plant.
“In China, there is a great demand for such textile fibers and thus there is still more potential for us,” says Gerhard Högl, sales director of GIG Karasek GmbH.
