Kemapco is a joint venture between Arab Potash Company Ltd. and Kemira, a global leader in the supply of chemical products for different applications.

The challenge

The companies needed a complete package for the production of demi water to be installed into a potash production plant in Jordan.

The project

Our team supplied a fully pre-assembled plant package designed to simplify skid transportation and speed up onsite activities due to the high level of automation developed via Cannon Artes’ internal automation team. Due to our decades of expertise and skilled field technicians, the project went through commissioning and start-up without any problems.

The solution was studied to minimize the environmental impact by reducing water consumption and chemical use.

We have always been present in the chemical market, supporting the most demanding projects to supply superior quality water treatment packages and solutions.

The supplied solution

The solution considers the environmental condition (high Reverse Osmosis Recovery and low uses for regeneration) and chemical use.

The supplied plant consists of:

  • A pre-treatment (cartridge filter, hydrochloric acid, and anti-scale dosing to prevent salts precipitation on membranes) followed by a single pass of reverse osmosis
  • A degassing tower to remove CO2 from water and reduce the anionic load from the water that feeds the mixed bed

The whole system was designed to produce 300 m3/d of water in compliance with the limits required for high-pressure steam generator makeup water.
