Maverick has changed the perception of FRP in the mining market. Now, we see FRP as a reliable material for our needs.
Enrique Escobar, Metatron Mining and Energy Solutions
In recent years, increased environmental regulations have required coal fired power utilities to embrace new scrubbing technologies. Wet Flue Gas Desulfurization (FGD) scrubbing technologies involve limestone and gypsum slurry solutions which are abrasive and corrosive in nature. Carbon steel and alloy material options are generally not reliable or sustainable for this service.
For both financial and safety reasons, FRP has become a reliable and cost-effective solution for wet FGD applications at many power generation stations. However, the exposure to both corrosive and abrasive chemical environments makes monitoring the condition of the process equipment critical. At Maverick Applied Science we strongly encourage an annual Maintenance Assessment Program, which includes visual inspections and other non-destruction testing measures.
