Electronics and Semiconductor Industries

Over the years, Plasticon Projects has developed special solutions for the micro-electronics and chip industries. These industries have specific demands and high requirements for their production processes, including the storage, handling and processing of mediums such as HCl, HF, H3PO4, etc.

With its well-organised manufacturing processes, Plasticon Projects is a reputable supplier of high-purity linings for tanks for the semiconductor industry. These tanks contain ultra-pure chemicals which are used for photolithographic etching processes for silicon-based microchip or solar cell production.

The combination of GRP and high-purity fluoroplastic lining systems has enabled Plasticon Projects to supply key players in this very demanding market. Plasticon Composites International Contracting has even developed a special design and technique to apply sheets of fluoroplastic lining systems in existing areas.

Application for electrolyzers

At present, there are different types of electrolysers depending on their size and function. The most commonly used are:

Alkaline electrolyser

They use a liquid electrolyte solution, such as potassium hydroxide or sodium hydroxide, and water. Hydrogen is produced in a cell consisting of an anode, a cathode and a membrane. The cells are usually assembled in series to produce more hydrogen and oxygen at the same time. When current is applied to the electrolysis cell stack, hydroxide ions move through the electrolyte from the cathode to the anode of each cell, generating bubbles of hydrogen gas on the cathode side of the electrolyser and oxygen gas at the anode.

Proton exchange membrane (PEM) electrolyser

PEM electrolysers use a proton exchange membrane and a solid polymer electrolyte. When current is applied to the battery, water splits into hydrogen and oxygen and the hydrogen protons pass through the membrane to form hydrogen gas on the cathode side.

Solid oxide electrolysis cell (SOEC)

SOECs operate at a higher temperature (between 500 and 850 ºC) and have the potential to be much more efficient than PEMs and alkaline electrolysers. The process is called high-temperature electrolysis (HTE) or steam electrolysis and uses a solid ceramic material as the electrolyte. Electrons from the external circuit combine with water at the cathode to form hydrogen gas and negatively charged ions. Oxygen then passes through the sliding ceramic membrane and reacts at the anode to form oxygen gas and generate electrons for the external circuit.

FRP is an excellent material for the construction of the alkaline solution storage tanks and in combination with a thermoplastic liner the best solution for Ultra Pure Water!
