As high-lighted in this article from the Spring/Summer 2015 issue of Sulphuric Acid Today and this article in the Tulsa World. Devco has been awarded a project that will include full turn-key plant delivery of what will be the world’s largest sulfur melter. The melter facility is being built for The Mosaic Company, the world’s largest supplier of phosphate and potash.
Thomas Dombroski, Mosaic’s Project Manager said “Devco has provided Mosaic with a unique and optimized facility design which will allow Mosaic the greatest operational flexibility with optimum safety and environmental considerations.”

Devco’s director of business development, Bevan Houston said of the project, “Getting the opportunity to build a large project for a world-class customer like Mosaic has been very exciting for our company. Devco is pleased to offer our customers a modular concept as part of our design that maximizes labor concentration in a fabrication-shop environment and provides greater schedule attainment.”
Devco is utilizing core process technology by CTI Consulting out of New Orleans, Louisiana. Devco has a long working partnership with CTI, most recently providing a $78 million USD Sulfur Purification facility for the Mishraq State Sulphur Company – Iraqi Ministry of Industry.
ISTI Plant Services from Tulsa, Oklahoma will provide fabrication and some construction activities for the project both in Tulsa, and at the site near Lakeland, Florida. Devco has worked with ISTI on multiple large scale natural gas processing facilities built in ISTI’s fabrication facility in Tulsa, and installed in Texas and Louisiana.
