Vinyl chloride monomer process (VCM)

Vinyl chloride monomer process (VCM)

Vinyl chloride monomer (VCM) is used resins almost exclusively for the manufacture of polyvinyl chloride (PVC). PVC is mainly used in the building industry, for consumer products and for the production of packaging materials.

Impairment of the operating personnel is reduced by dangerous VCM.

● Normally, is dried, the vaporized ethylene dichloride and passed through a catalyst (for
Example pumice or charcoal), which is embedded in stainless steel tubes. These tubes are directly
heated in a cracking furnace.

● Hot, escaping gases are cooled and condensed gases are under pressure in a
Fractionating initiated.

● VCM is formed by the condensation of the overhead vapor in a water condenser.

● VCM is then filtered and either to a storage tank for further processing for the production of PVC
forwarded or sold to other PVC producers.
