Koch Sulfur Products Company, LLC is expanding its product flexibility by adding a sulfur priller and new export location in Corpus Christi, Texas.
Koch Sulfur Products markets the sulfur produced at affiliate Flint Hills Resources, which is based in Wichita. In Corpus Christi, the company has been shipping molten sulfur since 1995.
Shipping the molten product is limited to using barge transportation, but the new priller makes it into a product that can be loaded into larger vessels and exported anywhere in the world.
Sulfur is used primarily in phosphate fertilizer and to produce sulfuric acid.
The PrillMax 2000 was constructed by Martin Sulfur of Beaumont, Texas. Daily, it can form up to 2,000 metric tons of prilled sulfur, which is a byproduct of the petroleum refining process.
