Modular PSA Recovery
Building on a track record of over 100 Pressure Swing Adsorption (PSA) units since 1969, CB&I is your full-range supplier of adsorption-based gas separation plants for hydrogen, helium and other high-value gases.
CB&I is the only hydrogen PSA supplier capable of self-performing all phases of a project—from separation technology to complete engineering, shop fabrication, field commissioning and after-sales support. CB&I’s world-leading capabilities allow us to deliver projects faster than any other PSA supplier, with exceptional quality and the benefits of a single point of responsibility.
CB&I-designed and built PSA units deliver hydrogen purity to customer specifications, from 99.5% H2 for refinery applications up to and including 99.9999%+ H2 applications for critical service in petrochemical and semiconductor applications.
- Small footprint and small stored flammable gas volume
- Reliable, redundant, fault-tolerant operation
- Uniquely suited to stable performance with large daily temperature variations
CB&I’s continuous improvement philosophy is backed by our ongoing program of adsorbent characterization, separation design and validation. Our emphasis is on combining our state-of-the-art adsorbent and cycle technologies with the highest quality of componentry and fabrication to deliver a product of lasting value. CB&I cyclic adsorption plants are engineered using the best adsorbent technologies from leaders in the fields of zeolites, activated carbons, silica gels and aluminas—delivering specifically-tailored, optimum solutions to each customer's specifications.
Many older PSA plants can be revamped with new automation systems to increase their performance and reliability. With our substantial in-house automation engineering team, CB&I can design, install and commission a new control system for your existing PSA plant.
CB&I works with the same adsorbent manufacturers that produce the top quality materials for our new units to supply replacement adsorbent systems.
Adsorber vessels designed and built by CB&I are highly-engineered, precision-crafted products that work with our adsorbent and cycle technology to yield a high-performance, durable system.
CB&I offers a full scope of field support and training for new PSA plants and existing clients.
