Uhde offers its customers many years of expertise and experience in chemical plant engineering - from the execution of process studies to the handling of projects on an EPC basis.
We offer a highly competitive technology for the production of nitric acid in the range up to more than 2000 mtpd.
Based on customer-specific requirements an optimized process concept is developed, taking into account capital expenditure and operating cost. Both, mono-pressure and dual-pressure processes are available.
Plants can be designed for applications in fertilizer or explosives industries (usually approx. 60% nitric acid concentration), or for the chemical industry (up to 68% nitric acid concentration, azeotropic acid).
More than 130 references for all process variants since 1958, 23 references in the 21st century
High reliability and on-stream time
