VCM Process

Almost all Vinyl Chloride Monomer (VCM) produced is used in manufacturing of Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) resins. PVC is used in the building and construction industry, consumer goods and packaging

 

VCM

• Filtration plays an important part in the VCM process as it has a direct affect upon process yield, process efficiency and product quality, and also helps minimize operator exposure to hazardous VCM

• Typically, vaporized ethylene dichloride is dried and passed over a catalyst (e.g. pumice or charcoal) packed in stainless steel tubes that are directly heated in a cracking furnace

• hot effluent gases are quenched and the condensed gases fed in to a fractionating tower operating under pressure

• VCM is formed by condensing the overhead vapors in a water condenser

• VCM is then filtered and sent to either a storage tank for further processing to produce PVC or sold to other manufacturers that make PVC
