Acrylonitrile Solutions

Fouling in an acrylonitrile (AN) production facility is a common challenge for producers. Both AN and hydrogen cyanide (HCN) are reactive monomers that can polymerize under production conditions, resulting in process fouling. The most prevalent treatment for acrylonitrile polymer fouling is hydroquinone (HQ), which is only partially effective. The breakthrough Nalco Water high performance inhibitor technology challenges the existing industry standard for polymer control.
