Over the years of operating Sulfuric Acid plant, Ankur Fertilizer has enhanced the technology to produce sulfuric acid through the most efficient process Delta-Thermo-Tech (ΔTT)™. It is a proven technology based on experience of more than 30 years. Some of the advantages of ΔTT™ are:
We have an in house Research & Development team along with fully equipped workshop, which works on improving the technology and strive to upgrade the plants' productivity.
|Type of Process||ΔTT™ - DCDA (Double Conversion & Double Absorption)||Conventional (Single Conversion and Single Absorption) or DCDA|
|Sulfur Melter||Cylindrical Shape with Conical bottom helps in easy removal of sludge and lesser impurities in clear Sulfur||Rectangular Shape with no sludge drain facility, results in frequent cleaning of the Melter Pit.|
|Fire Bricks||Specially Designed Composition, that results in better service life, low maintenance and lesser heat losses.||Ordinary Fire Bricks, as available in market|
|Burner||Tangential entry of dry air results in complete combustion||No tangential entry|
|Stages of Conversion||Five||Four|
|Conversion Efficiencies||Up to 99.91%||Up to 99.8%|
|SO2 Emission||<0.8KG/MT of Sulfuric Acid||<1.2KG/MT of Sulfuric Acid|
|SO3 and Acid Mist Emission||<25mg/M3 at FAT outlet||<50mg/M3 at FAT outlet|
|Cold Heat Exchanger||Duplex CHE provides low maintenance cost||Single CHE|
|Scrubber||On Line Ventury and Pack tower||Only Pack Tower|
|De-misting Zone for IAT & FAT||Installed after acid distribution system. It reduces load inlet on mist eliminators and so, better efficiency of mist eliminators||No provision.|
|Hot Gas Filter||Cartridge filter Quick drain type||Requires much more time for cleaning|
The conventional technologies available in the market typically offers a 4 stage converter, while ΔTT™ presents a special 5 stage convertor, to keep the conversion efficiency from SO2 to SO3 at maximum (around 99.9%). The basic ideas behind going for a 5-stage converter are:
- It helps in increasing the conversion efficiency
- It also minimizes the stack emissions level of SO2

Transportation of acid is hazardous and expensive. AFPL has the experience to handle and transport large quantities of acid and can deliver acid through its own fleet of tankers, while customers can be assured safe, secure and in a time delivery.
