Corzan® CPVC: Delivering THE IDEAL Solution to the
Mineral Processing Industry

Mining operations typically rely on highly corrosive chemicals and high-temperature throughputs, often presenting risks to the integrity of most piping systems. Without the right material that has the appropriate chemical resistance, these attributes can generate ongoing maintenance challenges and costly, premature failures.

Industrial piping systems made with Corzan® CPVC can reliably handle aggressive chemicals as used in the mineral processing industry, such as:

  • Zinc sulfate
  • Copper sulfate
  • Sodium sulfate
  • Metabisulphite
  • Sodium cyanide
  • Sulfuric acid

Piping systems must stand up in processing raw materials after excavation, in extracting precious materials from the ore, or in recuperating metals and minerals from the waste of electric and electronic equipment (WEEE). The strength and dependability challenges of piping systems are only going to rise:

  • Existing mine sites and pits increase the extraction of lower concentrated ores from deeper in the Earth’s crust. The sustainability commitment for a circular approach requires countries to encourage their industry to invest into recycling plants to recuperate metals and minerals from the waste of electric and electronic equipment.

  • Public expectation for environmental friendly sourcing, prevention of child labour and slavery and political pressure to become independent from other countries’ supply of rare Earths and precious minerals are contributing to the growing importance of Urban Mining.

Why Corzan® CPVC is the dependable choice for the industry

Made of an easy-to-install, durable, and high-performance CPVC, Corzan® pipe, fittings and valves provide the necessary mechanical strength required by mineral processing operations in following applications:

  • Electrolysis operations
  • Electrowinning
  • Electrorefining
  • Acid service lines
  • Talining lines
  • Gas vent scrubbers
  • Froth flotation operations
  • Wastewater treatment plants

Corzan® CPVC vs Other Materials

When compared to common metallic and non-metallic piping materials, Corzan® CPVC piping solutions can ensure superior performance and reliability. Where corrosion, sedimentation and crystallization would compromise the integrity of most metallic systems, Corzan® CPVC offers greater resistance to acids, bases, salts and aliphatic hydrocarbons.

With higher reliability and lower installation and maintenance costs than metal pipework and other alternative materials, a Corzan® CPVC industrial system will pay for itself.
