Typical Magnesium Bisulfite Skid

Magnesium (H2MgO6S2) Bisulfite Production Systems from Powell are available to produce 40% by weight of magnesium bisulfite using dry sulfur dioxide (SO2) gas, wet sulfur dioxide gas, or liquid sulfur dioxide out of railcars, iso containers, or tank trucks.

The systems are automatic and include pumps and heat exchangers for the safe, accurate production of magnesium bisulfite. The system can be started by an operator and flow rates can be varied as required. Remote mounted pumps for magnesium hydroxide supply and water for dilution magnesium hydroxide are typical options. A cooling tower with pump is a typical option used for cooling the process.

Many options exist for the equipment such as:

  • 316 SS pipe and fittings for dilution systems of sodium hydroxide
  • PTFE lined pipe and fittings
  • Teflon lined steel ball and plug valves
  • Dual laminate tank
  • Tefzel lined magnetic drive pumps
  • Rosemount, Yokogawa and Endress Hauser instrumentation typical
  • Masoneilan control valves
  • Allen Bradley PLC systems

This skid can be configured for multiple bisulfites such as sodium, potassium, magnesium, and ammonium.
