Tulsa-based Everest Sciences Corp. announced Monday that its ECOChill system has been selected by TradeMark Nitrogen to increase efficiencies in the fertilizer company’s nitric acid plant in Tampa, Florida.
Everest Sciences will ship the ECOChill system in January, company President Gary Hilberg said. Hilberg did not disclose the dollar value of the contract.
Everest Sciences’ patented ECOChill system will be used by TradeMark Nitrogen to increase mass air flow into the nitric acid plant’s air compressor during hot and warm months when mass flow is typically reduced.
For chemical production facilities that use air as a feedstock — a raw material to fuel their industrial processes — increasing air flow can mean significant increases in the production of ammonia, nitric acid, ammonium nitrate and other chemicals.
TradeMark Nitrogen is a wholesale manufacturer, seller and distributor in the fertilizer industry.
“We are pleased that TradeMark Nitrogen has joined our growing list of customers in this segment and look forward to building and installing the ECOChill solution so TradeMark can gain incremental production year-round,” Hilberg said.
“Our ECOChill solution will increase the full year air compressor capacity by over 7 percent with no additional major system modifications or costs, providing a very quick and economical boost in production.”
Everest Sciences was founded in 2008 and has approximately 15 employees at its headquarters in east Tulsa.
Everest Sciences provides a range of air cooling and handling solutions that allow customers in the chemical processing, oil and gas, co-generation and other industries to achieve greater efficiencies and profitability.
Everest has developed and patented hybrid indirect evaporative inlet cooling technology used in the company’s ECOChill, ECOCool and Hydro-Flexcool systems to create cooler, denser air more efficiently than the conventional cooling technologies.
