Nuberg's scope of work includes plant design, detailed engineering and procurement of complex chemical equipment for TCI Sanmar for the anhydrous calcium chloride
pellets/granules production at its site in Port Said.
Since a large quantity of de-icing agent is sprayed in winter when calcium chloride
is scattered, it comes into contact with the vehicle and adheres strongly to the vehicle body following repeated cycles of drying and wetting in the air, and consequently causes the chromium plating to become corroded.
In the case of calcium chloride
, an increase in concentration from 0 to 1.
Al Muaiyyad further said the allocated land is sufficient not only to meet current needs for the production of soda ash and calcium chloride
, but also takes in consideration the company's strategic growth master plan to meet the future growth of the regional demand.
A K Tyagi, chairman, Nuberg Engineering, said: "We are excited about the project as it gives us the opportunity to set up the UAE's first calcium chloride
plant, making us one of the most trusted and reliable EPFC- lump sum turnkey (LSTK) contract companies globally.
The partnership will help Tetra andA Tessenderlo strengthen their respective global positions in calcium chloride
and potassium sulphate.
The company has received the contract to provide engineering and project management services for the construction of USD300m soda ash and calcium chloride
production facility in Jubail's Second Industrial City, the Royal Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
To decrease the consequences of corrosion caused by chlorides when spreading roads with these mixtures, already in the 1970's the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) of USA identified the mixture of calcium magnesium acetates as the low-corrosion chemical, compared to chlorides, alternative to rock salts and calcium chloride
salts in a cold period of the year (Holleman, Wiberg 2001).
To meet current calcium chloride
demand, TETRA has to purchase HCl and calcium chloride
from alternative and higher cost suppliers.
TETRA is an oil and gas Services Company with an integrated calcium chloride
and brominated products manufacturing operation that supplies feedstocks to energy markets, as well as other markets.
Tetra's new operation will be a calcium chloride
The top-of-the-line ice melter, the "best" option, is made with calcium chloride
