General GFC, a Syrian Government-owned Company, has 2 Sulphuric Acid plants, each rated at 850 tpd. The plants were not able to reach the rated capacity. When the work was awarded to DMCC (JV’s fore runner) against a global tender, the plants were operating at around 50% capacity. DMCC engineered the revamp on turnkey basis. The Heat Exchangers, Economisers and Superheaters were replaced with better designs. 3 Towers, Sulphur Furnace, APT and Converter were modified and complete brick lining was redone. All equipment, including main Air Blower (turbine driven), Acid Pumps, etc. were overhauled. Instrumentation was completely replaced. Major plant piping was resized and replaced.
