HPD to Supply Two Caustic Soda Evaporation Systems to the Dow Chemical Company in the United States

For Immediate Release

PLAINFIELD, Illin. Aug. 11, 2008 - HPD has been awarded the contract to supply two new caustic soda concentration systems at The Dow Chemical Company's Freeport, Texas production facility.

The HPD systems will be comprised of two 3-effect falling film evaporation systems designed to concentrate membrane grade sodium hydroxide from 32 wt% to 50 wt%. The new concentration systems will provide maximum steam economy as well as excellent turndown ability for stable operations at varying capacities.

HPD will supply all major process and ancillary equipment as well as detailed engineering of the evaporation system. HPD will also support installation, system commissioning and startup services, and assistance for integration with the rest of the facility. The entire project is scheduled to be completed in 2011.
