Jacobs Awarded Contract by Ballance Agri-Nutrients for Gas Heat Exchanger

Jacobs Logo Jacobs Engineering Group Inc. announced today that its Chemetics® unit in Pickering, Ontario, Canada has been awarded a design and fabrication contract by Ballance Agri-Nutrients for one Cold Heat Exchanger to be installed in their sulphuric acid plant in New Zealand.

Officials estimate the construction value to be $2 million with a Chemetics contract value estimated at $745 thousand.

The scope of work involves the design and fabrication of a Cold Heat Exchanger plus redesign of the interconnecting ducting for the heat exchanger. Ballance selected Chemetics based on Chemetics' experience, technical merit and the appropriateness of the design for Ballance's plant. Ballance preferred Chemetics proprietary Radial Flow Gas-Gas Heat Exchanger Design over other available designs on the basis that it was technically superior to others available in the marketplace. This project builds on the customer relationship established on an acid cooler project Chemetics recently completed with Ballance. Ballance was pleased with the product and the quality of site service and training they received from Chemetics' Technical Services Group.
