Our manufacturing process is based on an advanced method for dehydrating methanol via a catalytic intermolecular reaction.
Our technology of high-purity DME production is patented, with Aerosolex LLC owning the patent
The production cycle is entirely leak-proof, which precludes any adverse environmental impact
The production cycle has 5 stages, from raw-materials processing to delivery of the end product to clients.
Raw material for dimethyl ether production is methanol – a product of natural gas processing.
The rectification column provides deep methanol purification from impurities.
A reacting-rectifying unit filled with catalyst is used for dimethyl ether synthesis and products separation of the methanol intermolecular dehydration reaction. Dimethyl ether is separated from methanol in the upper part of the column and water is separated from methanol in the bottom part.
Coming from the upper part of the column dimethyl ether goes through the dehydration process and then goes to the underground storage tanks where it is kept under pressure and below 50°C.
Aerosolex uses its own stainless steel tank-containers to provide the product delivery service compliant with all necessary safety requirements.
Automated production facility
Operating System from a leading vendor
All automatic system elements are linked into an integral production control system, which was created and programmed specifically for the needs and technology of Aerosolex.
Production Control System
The automatization of the production control system minimizes human involvement. Only two employees per shift are able to control the facility’s production process.
Automatic Safety System
If any of the controlled parameters exceed the determined limits, the system will automatically switch all facility systems into safe mode.
The total production plant personnel is 30 employees.
The in-house laboratory of Aerosolex is equipped with modern equipment and highly-qualified experts providing real-time monitoring of incoming materials and control of outgoing product. Additional testing is available at the customer’s request.
