A safety solution more than safety-FUCARE solution for BASF MIRA project


On July 31st of 2017, FUCARE was awarded a contract on blast protection solution for BASF MIRA project, EPC by WorleyParsons, a new plastic additives plant at its Shanghai site. This world-scale plant, with an annual capacity of 42,000 tons, will produce antioxidants and associated forms and blends.

Different from other HVAC systems for regular industry and defense applications, the chemical production process at BASF MIRA has been assumed to be very sensitive to quality of air flow control inside buildings. The widely accepted tolerance range for damper’s air-flow-rate performance by ±15%, cannot be accepted by MIRA project and the tolerance has to be positive due to the lessons that BASF experts have learned from the troubles of previous chemical projects.

FUCARE’s FC-RBV-11 high performance blast valve is one of the very few products in the world that offers not only the superior protection against blast waves but also the air-flow-rate with a positive tolerance at specified pressure drop.  This has been a critical factor which could assure the success of this project.
