We have unmatched design intelligence that can provide product development and support. At Beetle Composites we can create new products as well as assist you with incremental improvements. Fiber Reinforced Polymers (FRP) are widely used in the chemical processing industry because of their reliability, strength, low maintenance, affordability and design flexibility, but the market needs are extremely diverse.
FRP has a distinct advantage over metal alloys, such as titanium, and rubber-lined steel with lower installation costs, reduced maintenance, and long service life proven—with over 20 yrs of successful operating experience at many plants/facilities around the world. More importantly, FRP is recognized as having superior corrosion resistance and abrasion resistance when compared to specialty alloy metals, in stringent chemical processing and in aggressive hydrometallurgical environments.
CHEMICAL PROCESSES AND APPLICATIONS
In the chemical processing industry FRP are typically used for pipes, ductwork, storage tanks, absorption towers, drying towers, solvent extraction vessels, gas scrubbers, packed reaction columns, pressure vessels, process reaction vessels, stacks, process containment equipment, packing support systems, packed bed distributors, bed limiters, and distributor feed headers—to list some examples.
FRP are utilized worldwide for applications in chlorine, sulphuric acid, biological transformation, fertilizer, petrochemical, and mining and mineral plants. They can be used in separation processes such as filtration, settling (sedimentation), extraction or leaching, distillation, recrystallization or precipitation, drying, and adsorption.
Our strengths are inherent in our experience; comprehensive knowledge of composites and our precision capabilities. We will design, manufacture and build for your chemical processing needs. Our specialized resins are perfect for chemical and metal processing (i.e. ion exchange, metal chelation, solvent extraction etc.), leach storage and transfer, residue treatment, rich electrolyte storage and handling, high temperature, and washdown applications—to name a few.
