Companies in the Oil and Gas as well as Petrochemical industries are facing many challenges today. The fulfilment of legal requirements, compliance with industrial standards and the increasingly stringent quality specifications of customers often require a great deal of effort and are reflected in rising production costs, among other things. This might explain a growing demand for custom processing. Haltermann Carless' production plant in Harwich, UK, focuses on tailor-made customer solutions and is ideally equipped for custom processing.
Growing demand for custom processing
In addition to manufacturing its own high-quality products, Haltermann Carless is positioned as a custom processor with its plant in Harwich,UK. As market leader in the aromatics and speciality hydrocarbons sector, we can also utilise our competence in production for other suppliers and customers. A customer’s lack of processing capacity or process technology, or the wish to outsource secondary processing to use its own plants for higher added value activities, leads to a need for external support. Custom processing can also have a role in the launch of new products, thereby enabling investment decisions in new plants to be taken against a background of greater market experience. Excellent site conditions and capacities at Harwich enable us to absorb order peaks from our customers and support them in any of these situations.

We offer the following services depending on your requirements and specifications:

Production site offers ideal conditions and capacities
In Harwich, perfect conditions are available, such as considerable process efficiency thanks to optimised and modern production units, as well as high plant availability:
Batch Distillation Plants
Two batch distillation units, which can also be linked together to operate as a two-column distillation plant either fully continuous or in a semi-continuous mode.
Condensate Distillation Plant
A four-column continuous distillation plant, designed primarily for the fractionation of North Sea gas condensates (or similar streams such as pipeline interfaces or mixed fuel streams) into a variety of distillate fractions.
High Vacuum Distillation Plant
A continuous three-column distillation plant, designed primarily for high vacuum operation with low internal pressure drop, to fractionate special gas oil and heavy aromatic feeds at lowest possible column bottom temperatures to minimise product degradation. However, it is also possible to process North Sea gas condensates and pipeline interfaces on this plant.
In addition to the distillation plants mentioned above, the site offers the Perco® sweetening process and soda lime treatment to improve the product odour.
