Chlor-alkali plants are required to manage some of the most corrosive environments imaginable, transporting harsh chemicals at extreme temperatures. Combine this with regular use of high-voltage electrolysis processes, and you have attributes that can rapidly compromise the integrity of most piping systems.
The durable, high-performance CPVC used in Corzan® Industrial Systems offer distinct advantages to Chlor-alkali processing operations:
- Superior chemical resistance to a broad range of substances
- Low calcium and magnesium content, suitable for high-purity brine
- Improved safety with low thermal conductivity in comparison to metallic materials
- Quick, simple and reliable fabrication and installation
- Lower total lifecycle costs - Clients experience minimal installation and maintenance charges and a longer system service life in comparison to systems relying on other materials.
Corzan® CPVC as a liner material will provide further chemical resistance for dual laminate applications. When used in combination with Fiber Reinforced Polyester (FRP), the Corzan®-lined pipe can consistently function in temperatures as high as 104 °C (220 ºF).
Corzan® CPVC is the technical solution to move away from costly investment in new alloys, or in managing the inevitable and ongoing maintenance challenges and premature system failures.
