LONDON (ICIS)--South Africa’s Sasol Acrylates has delayed a planned turnaround on its crude acrylic acid (CAA) unit until November, because of better-than-expected running conditions, a source from the company said on Wednesday.
The company had planned to begin a brief turnaround in October to maintain a reboiler exchange.
However, a source from the company said on Wednesday: “We have delayed the eight-day CAA shutdown by a month, and will now commence on 13 November due to better-than-expected running conditions.”
Sasol Acrylates is based in Sasolburg in the Free State province, South Africa, and has the capacity to produce 80,000 tonnes/year of CAA from the facility.
Acrylic acid and acrylate esters are propylene derivatives.
