Oxbow Sulphur Treatment Plant

case study
about the project
The Oxbow Forming Facility located at the Associated British Ports (ABP) terminal in Southampton, UK is a sulphur forming facility which converts molten sulphur (from oil refineries) to sulphur pellets. Molten sulphur will be pumped from the sulphur tank to two Berndorf Accudrop sulphur pastillation units located in the forming unit building. The formed sulphur will be collected and conveyed to a 1,000 tonne storage silo to awaiting shipment by container. It has a maximum throughput capacity of 87,600 tonnes per year with an expected average throughput of 30,000 tonnes per year.
