The chimneys and ducts of coal-fired power plants equipped with flue gas desulfurization systems demand sophisticated corrosion protection. Corrosion Engineering systems resist acidic condensate produced when gas temperatures fall below the acid dew point. Whether you are reheating the gas after scrubbing, running wet, or a combination of wet with occasional bypass, Corrosion Engineering can design the PENNGUARD® System to meet your needs.
The global power generation industry relies on our unique PENNGUARD® Block Lining System for long-term corrosion protection in their stacks. This versatile lining system is even suitable for seismic zones and can be applied over steel, concrete, gunite, brick and fiberglass structures.
When initial cost considerations drive the chimney lining selection process, power generators turn to PENNCOAT® Linings, which incorporate glass flake. These linings, as well as fiberglass reinforced PENNTROWEL® L/F Systems, find application in other parts of the FGD plant including tank linings, neutralization basins and cooling tower bases.
In predominantly hot and dry stacks, single-component PENNGUARD™ HP Epoxy Primer or plural component TUFCHEM® Silicate v performance, the substrate and anchoring system are first lined with a chemical-resistant membrane, such as PACMASTIC™ 325 Membrane, prior to installation of the gunite.
