Remelting Sulphur must be approached properly to eliminate the dangers associated with handling Sulphur. It is extremely important to be done correctly to prevent contamination and high moisture feed stocks.

Enersul’s design is a culmination of many years of remelter operations and development. We have proven experience dealing with difficult remelting situations. Designed for ambient conditions our systems still demonstrate low operating and maintenance requirements. Enersul remelting technology has been safely and effectively remelting Sulphur for over thirty years, and the technology is constantly being improved.

The Remelting Process

  1. Sulphur is removed from a solid sulphur stockpile and transported to a feed hopper which feeds the sulphur at a controlled rate onto a feed conveyor.
  2. The feed conveyor transfers the sulphur to the MODEX™ inlet hopper and discharges it into the tank.
  3. The solid sulphur commences to melt once it contacts the liquid sulphur bath in the tank that has been heated and well mixed by the recirculation line from the external heat exchanger.
  4. A submersed pump then pumps this liquid sulphur through a filter into the external heat exchanger.
  5. When the liquid level in the tank reaches a set value, a control valve opens and releases a portion of this, all the while maintaining the flow through the heat exchanger.

The Enersul Remelter Product Family

Enersul has created a line of Remelters, ranging from standard MODULAR designs, High Efficiency and those used for High Contamination sulphur.
