Standard, Mega and Jumbo Plants

As a general rule, urea granulation plants can be split into three classes based on annual production capacity:

  • Standard plants
  • Mega plants
  • Jumbo plants

Plants producing less than 1 million metric tons per year are classed as standard plants. With more than 60 standard plants in operation, UFT is the most experienced urea granulation licensor.

Plants producing between 1 and 1.3 million metric tons per year (approx 3,000 to 3,800 mt/d) in a single line are classed as mega plants. In total, UFT has already designed 21 plants with a capacity of more than 3,000 mt/d. 8 of them already in operation.

The biggest single line plant designed to date has a name plate capacity of 4,200 mt/d. The highest daily production achieved so far in a UFT fluid bed granulation plant is more than 4,200 mt/d (design capacity 3,600 mt/d).

UFT is the only licensor who can offer proven technology for mega plants.

Based on its experience in the design and commissioning of world-scale plants, with capacities of 3,500 to 4,200 mt/d, UFT has developed a process schematic for single-line urea granulation plants with capacities of 4,200 to 5,000 mt/d, the so-called jumbo plants.
