China National Petroleum Corporation Completes First Medical Mask Production Line

03 Mar 2020   

22 days of hard work, day and night scientific research, non-stop construction...On February 29, the first batch of six production lines for surgical masks was completed and put into operation, with a production capacity of 600,000 units per day.

In march, with the introduction of 21 surgical mask production lines, production will reach 1.5 million.Since the outbreak of the new crown pneumonia, face masks and other epidemic materials are extremely scarce.

CNPC (China National Petroleum Corporation)  as a large state-owned backbone enterprise, firmly implement the party central committee and state-owned assets supervision and administration commission of the state council's deployment, to producing medical insurance market, speed up the mask production dedicated melt-blown material research and development, the core material to new capacity layout melt-blown fabric construction, accelerate the expansion of the mask production line, from scratch, from less to more, to implement the state's responsibility and duty.

Melt-blown cloth is commonly known as the "heart" of a mask, and melt-blown cloth and other non-woven fabrics are made from polypropylene.

In order to ensure the production of key materials for the prevention and control of the epidemic, petrochina adjusted its production plan as soon as possible. Six enterprises, dushanzi petrochemical, dalian petrochemical, lanzhou petrochemical, ningxia petrochemical, Hohhot petrochemical and dalian xitai petrochemical, shifted production immediately and produced polypropylene medical materials at full capacity.

Up to now, a total of nearly 120,000 tons of polypropylene medical materials have been produced.

The research institute of petroleum and chemical engineering has continuously intensified its efforts in scientific and technological research and development, and independently developed the production technology of melt-injection material. In early march, the production capacity of melt-injection material of 2 tons per day will be formed, laying a solid foundation for the realization of future melt-injection cloth.

When there are conditions, we must go on. When there are no conditions, we must go on.

Petrochina is pressing ahead at full speed to make sure the production line goes into production as soon as possible.

Daqing petrochemical set up a project team at the first time, deployed key links such as project site selection, construction design and production preparation, and made every effort to promote early production and early mass production of the project.

Lanzhou petrochemical actively communicated with suppliers, and the two customized equipment with the original supply cycle of 30 days arrived in advance in 19 days.

Fushun petrochemical actively responded to the unified deployment of the group company, setting up a mask production workshop, establishing a fixed maintenance team, and arranging technicians to study in the factory to ensure the smooth operation of the project after the start of construction;

Daqing oilfield adopts the mode of synchronous progress of manual production and new production line to meet employees' needs for masks to the maximum extent.

After the outbreak of the epidemic, CNPC took multiple measures to purchase epidemic prevention materials in various ways to meet the needs of enterprise cadres and employees, especially those working in the frontline of medical supplies.

With the continuous expansion of production capacity of masks, petrochina will provide anti-epidemic materials such as masks to the society on the basis of meeting the demand of front-line cadres and employees for production and living masks, so as to ease the contradiction between supply and demand and contribute its oil strength to resolutely winning the battle of epidemic prevention and control.
