Typical applications

New column installations as well as revamps of existing random packing columns for performance, reliability or lifetime upgrades

 

  • Nitric acid with concentrations lower than 10%
  • Caustic soda
  • Sea water
  • SO2
  • Acetic acid
  • Production of phosphoric acid
  • HCl with concentrations lower than 10%
  • Halogenated organics and chlorosilanes and many others

Material samples for corrosion tests are available upon request.

Crystallinity analysis of PEEK is also available upon request to ensure optimum chemical and mechanical performance.

Considerations

PEEK is not resistant in the following environments

 

  • Nitric acid with concentrations higher than 50%
  • Free halogens and free Cl2
  • Hydrofluoric acid

Sulzer mass transfer application knowledge is now combined with VICTREX competence in PEEK production to develop a random packing especially designed for corrosive applications at high temperatures. 

Features and benefits

  • Outstanding corrosion resistance at high temperatures
  • Superior mechanical stability at high temperatures up to 200°C compared to other plastic random packings (PP, PVDF, PFA)
  • Cost competitiveness compared to other corrosion resistant material
  • Column size reduction due to higher hydraulic capacity compared to earlier generation random packing types with the same separation efficiency
