Mineral processing facilities refining and smelting copper, alumina, ferronickel, platinum and steel
experience metal wastage within their mission-critical equipment, including converter furnaces, smelter
furnaces, and off-gas ducting.
Metal surfaces in these high-temperature environments suffer from hot corrosion, acid attack, solid
particle erosion, and acid dew point corrosion, among other wastage mechanisms. Frequent replacement
and welding repairs can become costly, lead to forced outages, and significant production losses.
Any delay in permanently solving corrosion and erosion problems can lead to costly maintenance cycles as well as operational losses. Furthermore, corrosion and erosion problems can lead to environmental concerns, contributing to pollution and can ultimately lead to penalties.
