The demand for raw metals is increasing worldwide. And so are the expectations for processing plant performance and production. From a corrosion standpoint, mineral processing can be extremely aggressive and demanding. FRP is an excellent material for handling the acid and the metal concentrate required for hydrometallurgy.

Selecting the best and most cost effective materials for mineral processing is essential for ensuring dependable and low maintenance service. Because there are a variety of conditions in material processing such as solvents, acids, caustics and slurry mixtures, trial-and-error is no way to conduct a material selection process. Instead, Maverick Applied Science can guide you in making reliable and safe material choices and in designing systems.

Not only does FRP piping last longer and require less maintenance than other materials of construction in mineral processing systems, it is used in a variety of ways, including:

  • Pipes
  • Tanks
  • Absorption towers
  • Ductwork
  • Solvent extraction vessels
