Reliable hydrometallurgy pipes withstand corrosion, slurry abrasion, high temperatures and pressures.
Whether high pressure acid leaching (HPAL) acid, oxygen injection (POx), or in-situ leaching (ISL) is employed, every pipe used in the leaching method must be able to withstand corrosion and abrasion in slurries under high temperatures and pressures.
Traditional materials involve maintenance repairs (rubber-lined carbon steel, RLCS or FRP), or high capital investment in exotic materials, such as SS316/304, duplex, titanium, which are expensive. RLCS in particular requires constant maintenance.
That’s why Pexgol’s non-stop, integrity-strong piping is a must.
Unlike these traditional solutions, Pexgol’s hydrometallurgy pipes are corrosion resistant, durable and impact resistant, with no need for special handling that rigid pipes may require. Pexgol’s long length options offer versatile design and installation planning.
