Metals & Mining

Metal processing brings challenging environments, processing corrosive acids and brines. The excelent corrosion and abbrasion resistant characteristics of FRP make it the best choise ok material for the contstruction of your mixing tank, leach tanks and settler tanks for metal processing!

Among the best applications for FRP are pickling tanks or electrowinning tanks in minerals processing plants. These applications illustrate the advantage of FRP in an environment typified by high concentrations of chlorides. Metal alloys have limited practicality in acidic brine environments in contrast to FRP, which is applicable across this entire range of conditions.

Challenges in the Metals & Mining Industry

Plasticon Projects recognises the numerous challenges mining companies are facing day-to-day. Operating in a safe, cost efficient manner while investing time and effort in minimising the environmental impact of the operations is regarded as a business to be performed by highly-skilled people. Risk management and HSE are crucial topics, which are discussed on a daily basis, making the industry a dynamic market looking for new solutions every day. Current discussions in the metallurgy industry include topics such as continuous evaluation of mineral processing, as well as innovations of chemical and ways to make storage tanks, leach tanks, mixing tanks and settler tanks for mining industries all over the globe. With determination, we are approaching the industry to persuade it of the advantages of FRP and dual laminate material for mining processes. Plasticon Projects' products contribute to higher safety in mining processes. As FRP is corrosion and chemical resistant, abrasion resistant, fire retardant, lightweight and offers high insulation properties, choosing Plasticon Projects equipment and project approach is regarded as a risk-controlling and long-lasting solution for Mining Industries.

Added value and applications

In addition to the excellent properties of well-designed FRP material, Plasticon Projects offers on-site winding (manufacturing) possibilities at Mining Sites. Significant reduction of transportation costs are not to be underestimated: think of the cost reduction to be realised when transporting only raw materials and Plasticon Composites' mobile facility, instead of big, heavy steel tanks. Plasticon Projects understands the needs and challenges of Mining Companies; contact us for more information and reference projects.
