    CORROSION RESISTANT, HEAT RESISTANT RUBBER FOR POWER GENERATION

    Power stations contain complex thermal power plant and equipment, which can be required to operate at high temperatures but also can be exposed to a range of chemicals including acids and alkalis. The effects of corrosion due to chemical attack poses a constant risk to the health and safety of operators and the environment from dangerous leaking or spillage.

    Applications in thermal power stations include:
    • Coal handling yards
    • Pulverised fuel transfer systems
    • Coarse and fine ash handling systems

    POWER GENERATION INDUSTRY CHALLENGES

    EXTREME TEMPERATURES
    The furnaces that contain burners operating at extreme temperatures require a range of heat resistant rubber seals and rubber expansion joints for plant and equipment.

    CORROSION
    Cooling water demineralisation systems used to treat cooling water for re-use or discharge to the environment, require a wide range of chemical resistant rubber seals and linings to protect the build up of scale and corrosion due to chemical attack.

    SEALING
    It is imperative that flue gas desulphurisation systems work to capacity, to ensure the removal of unwanted sulphur dioxide from exhaust emissions before being discharged to the environment. These systems require a range of chemical resistant seals and linings for scrubbers and ductwork.

    It is crucial to the power generation industries that all critical seals and linings are ideally suited and updated regularly to ensure operations are running efficiently and safely.
