Xylene splitter, a xylene separation tower used to produce aromatics, has been installed by the Jurong Aromatic Corporation (JAC) in Jurong Island, the petro chemical hub of Singapore.
 
The xylene splitter was installed by the company as part of its US$ 2.4 billion Jurong aromatic project in the island. The project was scheduled to start its operations by 2011 but was delayed due to financial crisis.
 
The splitter weighing 1,147 tonnes is 108m tall and has a diameter of 8m. On completion of the Jurong Aromatic plant in early 2014, the plant is expected to produce 800 kilotonnes of paraxylene per annum, which will be supplied to textile manufacturers.
 
Paraxylene is an aromatic hydrocarbon used for manufacturing purified terephthalic acid (PTA) for making polyester.
 
Jurong Island is an artificial island located in the southwestern part of Singapore and it has production bases of several large petrochemical companies in the world.
