Corrosion-resistant frame system for flue gas applications

Corrosion-resistant frame system for flue gas applications

Corrosion resistance

Thermoplastics such as polyphenylene sulphide (PPS) are characterized by their very high resistance to chemicals and heat distortion, and by their high rigidity. They are therefore an ideal material for components of frame systems for use in flue gas applications in which acid precipitation arises.

High stability

PPS is in no way inferior to the metals commonly used for applications involving high chemical, thermal and mechanical stresses. It offers further benefits through its facility for more flexible assembly and adaptation to new requirements.

Complete systems from one supplier

Technoform designs custom load-bearing profiles and manufactures them from engineering plastic in a high-precision extrusion process. We also supply the matching corner joints, rivets and other plastic frame components where required.

Thermoplastics: a mature alternative to metal, and its equal

High-alloy metals have long been regarded as the material of choice for applications in aggressive environments, such as flue gas cleaning. Thermoplastics such as polyphenylene sulphide (PPS) are a modern, high-performance solution that is in no way inferior to the metals commonly used for applications subject to high chemical, thermal and mechanical stresses. PPS is notable for its very high resistance to chemicals and heat distortion, and for its high rigidity. It thereby satisfies the highest requirements for corrosion resistance and stability.

As a material for frame systems in flue gas applications, PPS offers compelling advantages over high-alloy metal, owing in particular to its superior facility for processing and its scope for adaptation of profile and connecting elements manufactured from engineering plastics. Further processing of alloyed metal components, such as the drilling of holes for the addition of socket or threaded joints during assembly, is far from straightforward. By contrast, plastic profiles can be adapted to changing requirements without their corrosion resistance or stability being impaired. 

The manufacture of both load-bearing profiles and their connecting elements from thermoplastics such as polyphenylene sulphide (PPS) enables modular frame systems to be achieved that meet the most demanding requirements for chemical and mechanical resistance, permanently and as a complete system.
