According to the Shahid Tondgooyan Petrochemical public relations and international affairs, the technical specialists in Shahid Tondgooyan Petrochemical acquired the technical knowledge and production of horizontal centrifuges required by the petrochemical industry.
The head of the Mechanical Repair Unit of PTA2 said: with the efforts of technical and engineering partners in the company and the cooperation of manufacturing companies and domestic knowledge base, we were able to achieve the technical knowledge, production, and assembly of horizontal centrifuges required by the product line.
Omid Vahidifar Added: This equipment, used to separate the solids from the fluid, consists of complex parts, that have high technology and cost. It is considered as the heart of the production line, and the continuation of production with the desired quality product, to correct performance dependent on this equipment.
Regarding how to build it, he said: After the start of sanctions and the lack of cooperation and services of the Japanese company the idea of building this sensitive and complex equipment came to the minds of colleagues.
Regarding the construction time and materials used in this equipment, Vahidifar said: It was done in 10 months by presenting engineering drawings by our colleagues and local knowledge-based companies, of which more than 90% of the required parts were made by domestic manufacturers.
The head of the Mechanical Repair Unit of PTA2, about the cost of building this centrifuge, said: The cost of the Japanese model, which was previously used in the company, along with the cost of installation and after-sales service, was more than one million dollars, which caused the outflow of foreign currency annually. Now, not only is there no need for foreign exchange to supply this part, but we can also turn it into an exporter and import foreign exchange by providing its technical drawings to knowledge-based companies and manufacturers of this centrifuge and supporting them.
Vahidifar stated: This centrifuge is used in industries such as petrochemical, medicine& pharmacy, food, and nuclear.
He said: Since the middle of December, when this centrifuge was installed and used in the production line, according to the company's experienced forces, it has high quality at the time of operation and causes satisfaction of colleagues and managers.
