GRAPHITE IN CHEMICAL PROCESS EQUIPMENT CONSTRUCTION

Graphite is a material with ceramic propoties. Because of its excellent thermal stability, chemical conductivity, it is widely used in electrometallurgy.

Graphite has been employed in chemical preocess equipment engineering for more than 70 years. In this sector, its applications are determained in the first place by its chemical and physical propoties and in the second place by its suitability as a construction material for equipment and pressure vessels.

An ideal process equipment material for numerous fields of high-temperature process technology:

  • Excellent corrosion resistance
  • High thermal conductivity
  • Easily machined with standard machine tools
  • Simple joining technique by cementing
  • Favorable price-performance ratio

Appications

  • Shell and Tube Heat Exchangers
  • Block Heat Exchangers
  • Economizer for Heat Recovery
  • Column and Column Internals
  • Pumps
  • Safety Disks
  • Porous Burners
