Hormozan Oil Co. has always been successful increasing its market share through innovation, strengthening customer relationships, smart hiring practices, and acquiring competitors, both domestically and internationally. Thanks to benefiting the professional commercial team, we have customers in many Asian, African countries and far beyond. Our international customers appreciate the high quality of our products and the reliability with which we master even complex logistical challenges. Much is handled in sea containers, but also bulk cargoes in vessels with the size of up to 10,000 MT.
We see ourselves not only as a bitumen manufacturer and supplier, but also as a service partner for the entire processing of export formalities. Our customers also find us easily at the major international and domestic trade fairs, where we present new services and report on the latest developments from the company. Hormozan Oil is a leading company on the Iranian Bitumen Market and one of the largest manufacturers & exporters of this material in Middle East. Since its establishment in 2004, the operation of Hormozan Oil Co., has been closely related to the structures of Hormozan Group, which remains our sole shareholder. The mission of Hormozan Oil, is innovative development in the area of the production, trading and distribution of Bitumen products of required quality standards which proves complete satisfaction for our customers.
Depends on the characteristics of the vacuum bottom feed and the required product specifications, we may use two different procedures for production in our plant:
- Blending process using vacuum slops
- Blowing of air into vacuum bottom feed in blowing reactors
The technology of blending the vacuum slops obtained in refinery distillation tower with vacuum bottom feed is one of the ways to achieve the bitumen properties such as softening point and penetration to figures which meet specific standards, especially when the entering feed has higher viscosities. Required equipment of this process includes feed and product storage tanks , in-line mixer , transfer pumps and heating equipment.
Regarding the blowing process which is used in the cases that the entering feed has lower viscosity than the specified amount, production plant of Hormozan Oil is consisted of two parallel trains with a total capacity around 2000 tons/day for production of different paving and roofing bitumen grades according to the customer’s demands. Each train includes feed and product storage tanks, transfer pumps, blowing towers, air compressors, knock-out drums , heating equipment and all of the required utilities for the process.
The bitumen plant also utilizes a modern PLC control system which enables operators for adjustment of process parameters for better approach to the final desired characteristics. Final products are stored in suitable bitumen tanks and will be waiting to be sent to drum filling unit or truck loading arms.
Neutralization of pollutant gases which are generated due to the nature of the blowing process is done through plant’s incinerator with real time monitoring to respect environmental rules and reduce air pollution.
Research And Development
The Research and Development (R&D) department of the company was launched to centralize research activities and to direct them towards production. Better accountability to customer's needs, diversion of products to comply with international standards, reducing environmental pollution, more communication and interacting with well-experienced staff are among the targets of the department.
Since national standards have not been defined completely for many new products, a comprehensive method complying with international standards has been defined. As for the products in which international standards fail to satisfy domestic clients, the views of clients have largely been taken into consideration and necessary tests have been conducted.
Entire production lines are under supervision of experienced and professionally skilled staff and the quality of products is under close supervision of Q.C. department, based on the results of daily and hourly laboratory tests to ensure that international standards approved by SGS and other inspection parties are met.
Laboratory of the company is able to perform required quality control tests which are mentioned in analysis table according to ASTM & AASHTO test methods.
At Hormozan Oil Company, we are dedicated to safety and reliability at every stage of the bitumen production stage, from blowing, to transport and delivery to the clients. Safe handling procedures are a vital component of this approach, ensuring that any risk to workers and members of the public is minimized. Our commitment to the safety of our employees remains a fundamental priority and we are ambitious in our approach to HSE affairs to have zero safety incidents. Bitumen emissions at ambient temperature are negligible. However, the physical properties of bitumen require that handling and application is generally carried out at elevated temperature. Under these conditions emissions from bitumen can occur. Hormozan Oil places great importance on ensuring that occupational exposure of workers to emission from hot bitumen is minimized. Regarding the emissions of waste gas during blowing process, we have a project for construction of a new incinerator. Hormozan Oil is committed to promoting industry-wide standards in health, safety and environmental practices. Our goal is to achieve continuous improvement in bitumen handling methods, transportation, storage and recycling practices through a range of activities and initiatives, including:
- Producing and distributing good-practice solutions and codes of practice
- Promoting safety and environmental standards
- Reviewing equipment and engineering to ensure that safety best practice is maintained
- Providing advice on legislative change in the areas of health, safety and environment
- Review and interpret new research that addresses the health and safety aspects of working with bituminous materials
Hormozan Oil has built different storage tanks for the feed and products, the total storage capacity of the production plant is around 12500 MT including 4 storage tanks with capacity of 3000 MT each, and two smaller tanks for drum filling unit. All of the storage tanks are equipped with internal heating coils to maintain tank content’s temperature in standard range. For this approach, two parallel hot oil packages are installed in this area.
Several screw and gear pumps are under service in area with a suitable piping network which allows operators to do loading, unloading and blending operations simultaneously without any restrictions.
