Materials for Design and Construction of Hydrometallurgical Equipment
Apr 15, 2018
Kevin Lambrych, Solver
Hydrometallurgical equipment used to extract and refine copper, nickel, cobalt, and rare earth metals is exposed to extremely corrosive chemical environments. These systems must be fabricated from materials that are durable against corrosion, meet mechanical requirements, and perform economically over the life of the mineral processing plant. In several recent large hydromet projects, fiber reinforced plastic (FRP) has been shown to provide equal if not improved durability relative to alternative materials of construction. This paper will compare corrosion performance and cost of plant equipment fabricated with corrosion resistant alloys, rubber lined steel, and FRP made with Epoxy Vinyl Ester thermoset resins. Case histories for FRP piping, storage tanks, extraction vessels, and electrowinning cells combined with laboratory based corrosion studies will be reviewed to demonstrate how FRP materials are selected for hydrometallurgical equipment. This presentation will be held in Room 230.
FRP: Proven Technology for Difficult Corrosion Challenges
Apr 18, 2018
Joy Bennett, Solver
No single technology fits every application. A skilled corrosion engineer draws from an array of solutions to maximize equipment durability. FRP composites offer proven performance in some of the most demanding corrosion environments. This presentation will show case histories of installations demonstrating FRP composites value and long term service in a variety of demanding corrosion environments. This presentation will be held in the Corrosion Chronicles Theater.
Overview of FRP Applications in Chlorine Plants
Apr 18, 2018
Michael G. Stevens, Solver
A review the use of FRP in chlorine plants since it was first used in 1952. The applications where FRP can be used will be discussed and case histories shown for these applications. This presentation will be held in Room 126 B-C.
