BorsodChem, the largest MDI/TDI producer in Eastern Europe, has adopted thyssenkrupp Uhde Chlorine Engineers’s filterpress technology, BiTAC, for more than 3 phases of their plant installations, starting with an installation of BiTAC® for 100,000 tons per year (NaOH-100%) in 2006.
Since then, BorsodChem has expanded and converted its plant using all three generations of BiTAC electrolyzers, BiTAC®, n-BiTAC and nx-BiTAC.
|Phase||Model||No. of racks||Start-up||Production capacity|
|Phase 1||BiTAC-861||8||May 2006||100,000 MT/Y|
|Phase 2||n-BiTAC-861||4||Oct. 2006||50,000 MT/Y|
|Phase 3||n-BiTAC-861||4||Sep. 2013||50,000 MT/Y|
|Replacement||nx-BiTAC-861||8||Oct. 2015||100,000 MT/Y|
Note: All BiTAC phase 1 electrolyzers were replaced with nx-BiTAC elements, containing up-date technology, in 2015.
Today the plant capacity has reached 200,000 tons per year (NaOH-100%), making it one of the largest BiTAC plants in Europe.
BorsodChem has been enjoying the remarkable stability and reliable operation of BiTAC technologies in more than 10 years of trouble-free operation.
