PTA-Purified Terephthalic Acid

High pressure pumps and compressors for producing chlor alkalis

PTA – Purified Terephthalic Acid

Used principally as a precursor to manufacture polyester, used to make clothing and plastic bottles. The catalytic liquid phase oxidation of paraxylene in acetic acid, in the presence of air is how PTA is produced in a modern plant.
