Sulphur processing & handling

Single source supply of complete end-to-end systems from receipt of molten sulphur to loading of solid material

IPCO is a world leader in sulphur processing and handling, having delivered complete end-to-end systems to hundreds of companies around the globe since 1951.

The company manufactures equipment for molten loading for truck and rail, block pouring, a full range of sulphur solidification technologies, downstream storage and reclamation, as well as bulk loading for truck, rail and ships.

In terms of solidification, systems are available to meet all throughput requirements:

Our Rotoform granulation system, designed for small to mid-size capacity requirements, is the world’s most widely used process for the production of premium quality pastilles and offers unrivalled product uniformity and environmentally friendly operation. Two models out of our Rotoform family have been specifically developed for the pastillation of sulphur, the Rotoform S8 and the Rotoform 4G HS.

Where higher capacity is required, our sulphur drum granulation system is a fully automated, once through, sulphur granulation process based on rotating drum technology.

Our expertise extends far beyond the solidification stage, encompassing everything from the receipt of molten sulphur from the SRU to a complete range of downstream handling operations. Our ProCool system automates the adjustment of liquid sulphur feeding temperature for optimum performance and highest quality requirements of pastillation.

By offering turnkey solutions, IPCO assumes total responsibility for a project. We can not only ensure full system optimization, but also deliver cost savings through significant project efficiencies.
