Sulphur solidification and handling

At Sandvik we engineer total sulphur solidification and handling systems to the strictest production and environmental parameters, with a typical turnkey project covering everything from pumping liquid sulphur from the storage tank, to loading equipment for the end product.

In recent years we have become a partner to several internationally-renowned engineering companies that service the petrochemical industry, and our Rotoform sulphur granulation units are now operational on all five continents.

Our activities range from cooperation during FEED (front-end engineering design) to EPC (engineering procurement construction) contracts, and turnkey solutions include liquid sulphur supply, solidification and downstream handling of solid sulphur* as well as utility equipment and control systems.

We have expanded our product portfolio by purchasing the proprietary technology and know-how of the Calgary-based Brimrock Group Inc. This significantly broadens our offering to market, encompassing liquid sulphur degassing, granulation, block pouring, remelting and consulting services.

* The same granulation system can be used to process sulphur, sulphur bentonite and sulphur derivates with minimal modification.
