NEW LENOX, Ill. — The LyondellBasell chemicals facility in Morris, Illinois, is a 900-acre complex that manufactures ethylene, which is then converted into polyethylene plastic resins. Starcon has worked within LyondellBasell Morris since 2010, performing maintenance work, capital projects and turnarounds. Additionally, Starcon has a nested crew of 35 team members working within the plant under a long-term maintenance contract.

The execution of past projects and the consistency of Starcon’s nested crew demonstrate the organization’s competence, quality of work, commitment to safety, ingenuity and productivity. Given this history of successful collaboration, it is not surprising Starcon has been a top candidate for some of the Morris facility’s most technically challenging projects.

The LyondellBasell Morris facility has four reactor bays that, depending on the particular line, have either two or three modules with 22 vertical rows of high-pressure tubing coils in each module. The coils are approximately 40 feet high. The tubing material is carbon steel. Each high-pressure flange that joins this tubing is over 2 inches thick and includes a specially designed lens ring gasket. 

For a sufficient joint, the studs on these specialty high-pressure flanges are torqued hydraulically. This precision equipment was originally manufactured in Austria and had not undergone a tube module replacement since its initial installation 40 years ago. LyondellBasell put the project out for bid on a lump sum basis, and Starcon beat out several union contractors and was ultimately awarded the project, which it completed successfully.
