Where It’s Used: Chlor-Alkali Processing

Chlor-Alkali plants create some of the most corrosive environments imaginable. The transport and storage of harsh chemicals at extreme temperatures, in combination with the high voltage electrolysis process, can quickly compromise the integrity of most piping systems and tank lining. Many facilities have felt forced to choose whether to invest in expensive, exotic alloys or to face ongoing maintenance challenges and costly, premature failures.

Corzan® CPVC is the better choice. Corzan CPVC stands up to the unique challenges of the Chlor-Alkali industry like few other piping materials can, providing facilities a reliable and affordable solution.

Corzan CPVC can reliably handle aggressive Chlor-Alkali processing chemicals such as:

  • Sulfuric acid (H2SO4)
  • Sodium hypochlorite
  • Sodium hydroxide (caustic soda) (NAOH)
  • Hydrochloric acid (HCl)
  • Concentrated sodium chloride (brine)
  • Demineralized / deionized (DI) water
  • Cell liquor (brine, sodium hydroxide)
  • Wet chlorine gas

A Solution the Chlor-Alkali Processing Industry Trusts

In more than 50 years of field performance, Corzan CPVC has outperformed alternative materials, including carbon steel, stainless steel, glass-lined and PTFE-lined piping and a variety of expensive, exotic alloys.

In addition, Corzan Material and Piping Solutions ensures the purity and concentration of the various compounds required in an electrolysis chamber. By contrast, some alternatives are vulnerable to leaching such contaminants as calcium, magnesium, silicon, nickel, lead or tin, which can interfere with the oxidation/reduction process.

Available in a large array of sizes and dimensions, Corzan CPVC can easily be adapted for use with:

  • Pipes
  • Tanks
  • Headers
  • Manifolds
  • Storage towers
  • Custom manufactured sheet and rod
Corzan Material and Piping Solutions provides an exceptional balance of properties to improve reliability and user confidence, while reducing capital and life-cycle costs, avoiding costly downtime and, most importantly, allowing Chlor-Alkali plants to stay operational – and more productive.
