Air Pollution Control

Breathe easy

Regulatory agencies continually update standards, raising the bar ever higher for air pollution control. This creates a challenging situation for plant managers and owners to install and maintain sophisticated scrubbing equipment for flue gases emitted by energy generating boiler systems.  These emissions create a highly corrosive environment for both stainless steel and nickel alloys that are often used in air pollution control processes.

Derakane™ and Hetron™ fiber-reinforced plastic (FRP) composites made with epoxy vinyl ester resins have become the preferred material of construction in many facets of air pollution control systems.  The combination of low maintenance and durability extend service life in corrosion prone environments allows you to breathe easy.

Ashland Derakane™ and Hetron™ epoxy vinyl ester resins are commonly found in:

  • Coal-fired power plants, where their superior abrasion and corrosion resistance, protect scrubbers, piping and ducting
  • Highly corrosive environments with hot, wet, acidic gases
  • Water processing tanks and piping with extremely hot processing water
  • Cooling towers and pultruded structural profiles and fan shrouds
