Key Catalyst for Petrochem Sector Produced

The Petrochemical Research and Technology Company has started providing domestic petrochemical companies with SAC500 catalyst to augment production of value-added goods, the managing director said Friday.
"The catalyst plays a key role in production of pipe-grade high density polyethylene (PE-100)," Ali Pajouhan was also quoted as saying by NIPNA, the National Petrochemical Company news agency.
Shazand Refinery in the central city of Arak, Markazi Province, is producing SAC500 on an industrial scale – close to 100 tons per year, Pajouhan said. 
Referring to the price, he said producing a kilo of the catalyst costs €50 and importing the same costs €400 per kilo.
The catalyst quality complies with Basel standards. 
Production of most key chemicals needs catalysts. Selecting the right material for each product is a sensitive issue because error in the catalyst can bring the entire petrochemical plant to a halt.
According to the official, SAC500 helps produce PE100 pipes wildly used in oil, gas, water and wastewater pipeline networks. PE100 pipes are easy to install, light in weight, flexible, corrosion-free and last for at least half a century.
PE100 has an optimum balance of three key properties, one of which is minimum required strength that provides not only stress crack resistance but also long-term strength as well as rapid crack propagation resistance.
