Mineral Processing

Choose a Corzan® HP industrial piping system to eliminate corrosion and improve the reliability of your plant's piping systems.

Mineral processing plants are known for transporting some of the most aggressive chemicals. Copper sulfate, zinc sulfate, sodium sulfate, metabisulphite, sodium cyanide and sulfuric acid are just some of the corrosive chemicals common to many mineral processing operations today. Without the right industrial piping system in place, these chemicals can wreak havoc on a plant's productivity, literally eating away profits in the form of corrosion that leads to premature piping failures and downtime.

Highly durable Corzan HP industrial piping systems stand up to these challenges over the long-term like no other piping material can-metallic or non-metallic. Made of high-performance chlorinated polyvinyl chloride (CPVC), Corzan HP industrial pipe and fittings offer the required impact resistance and corrosion resistance to reduce maintenance costs and increase the life of the system. Of particular interest to mineral processors is the fact that Corzan HP industrial pipe and fittings are inert to most acids, bases and salts, as well as aliphatic hydrocarbons.

The end result is a highly reliable system that is ideally suited for such applications as electrolysis, electrowinning and electrorefining operations; acid service lines; tailings lines; gas vent scrubbers; froth flotation operations, wastewater treatment plants.

Other benefits of the Corzan HP industrial piping system include:

  • Fast and easy installation process
  • Lightweight material with exceptional hydraulic capabilities
  • Stable material costs
  • Overall lower life-cycle costs
  • Availability of full system components, including pipe, fittings, valves, duct and sheet in a wide array of sizes
  • Technical assistance from Lubrizol's experienced R&D and field support teams
