The conversion of sulphur dioxide to sulphuric acid is a very efficient process, achieving 985% efficiency using conventional methods even this can be improved, however, by using two stages of sulphur trioxide absorption, resulting in efficiency up to 996. Design of a plant to manufacture sulfuric acid from sulfur contact double absorption process (dcda) 16 existing process routes for sulfuric acid production.
The wsa process can also be used for production of sulfuric acid from sulfur burning or for regeneration of the spent acid from eg alkylation plants wet catalysis processes differ from other contact sulfuric acid processes in that the feed gas contains excess moisture when it comes into contact with the catalyst. Sulfuric acid sulfuric acid is one of the oldest chemicals used by mankind 1st commercial production in england in 1720 it is one of the most important chemicals used in fertilizers , leaching metallic ores, refining petroleum and for manufacturing a myriad of chemicals and materials. Participants: - • ramesh choudhary • narayan lal bairwa • kailash chand regar • basti ram sinwar presentation on production of sulphuric acid by dcda dcda process • double contact double absorption process • as the name shows, there two processes contact process (twice) absorption process (twice) • both the processes run twice.

Sulphuric acid production by dcda process topics: sulfuric acid, the current annual production of sulphuric acid is about 55 million mt,against the installed capacity of 12 million mt/annum from sulphur based as well as smelter gas based plants some of the plants have been closed down due to various reasons. Sulphuric acid process - the 2000 tpd sulphuric acid plant adopts the monsato's double contact double absorption process and engineered by krebs , france presently merged with technip france the process has the following advantages: high conversion efficiency - 9972% emission within international norms.
Double absorption contact process efficiency of conversion of sulphur dioxide to sulphuric acid can be increased to 996% by using two absorption stages the effect of removing sulphur trioxide product at the first absorption stage is to push the reaction equilibrium of the remaining sulphur dioxide and oxygen in the direction of more product. Sulfuric acid production (oil firing burners) is also used for this purpose, if required the dcda process is used in situations where percentage so 2 in the gases is higher (9–10% approximately) processes of manufacture of sulfuric acid in: a practical guide to the manufacture of sulfuric acid, oleums, and sulfonating agents. Elemental sulphur structure of sulphuric acid reactions involved : s + o 2 = so 2 so 2 + ½ o 2 = so 3 so 3 + h 2 o = h 2 so 4 sulphuric acid powerpoint presentation: double convertion double absorption or dcda process raw material : elememtal sulphur (purity 995%.
