Five stage vacuum pump system for the recuperation of monomers
ZM Vakuum was commissioned with detailed engineering, installation, supply and start-up of the plants on site.
During the styrene polymerization one part of the styrene remains as a not converted monomer which is condensed in a system by condensers with diminished pressure and is led back in the process. In addition, it is demanded to win back the rest amount of styrene from the off-gas stream of the condensers to the vacuum systems so completely as possible for the process. This task makes special demands on our vacuum systems as well as on their design and construction.
