CF Industries reported that its entire nitrogen complex in Woodward, Oklahoma, is off-line due to a problem in one of the boilers.

All of the plants in the complex were safely shut down with no impact on personnel, the surrounding community or the environment, according to the company.

CF estimates that it will take approximately 6 to 8 weeks to return the plant to normal operations.

During the outage, the plant will execute the turnaround maintenance activities that had previously been scheduled for June. The Woodward complex has annual production capacity for 480,000 tons of gross ammonia, 820,000 tons of UAN, and 25,000 tons of urea liquor.

we have to controlled the n2 header pressure in between 1.50 kg/cm2 to 2.00 kg/cm2 before it is used in furnace for sealing, so we can save too much quantity of valuable nitrogen and also save the muffle life of HT FURNACE which is made of soft carbon materials , reduced tar formation in LT Furnace and also save the atmosphere due to venting unnecessary n2 in stack.
kept slight n2 purging in Electrical joint connection bothside box of LT & HT FURANACE for improve the muffle life of both furnace, joint of electric connection damage due to oxygen.
if any comment ,you want for CF Production ,send me mail.i have 18 years experience of this plant.
