Chemical Processing

Advantages

Refractron specializes in working with manufacturers of basic, intermediate and specialty chemicals, soaps and cleaning compounds; paints, coatings, and adhesives; and pesticides, fertilizers, and other agricultural chemicals.

We partner with manufacturing companies whose process usually involves mixing various raw materials (oil, natural gas, air, water, metals, and minerals) and adding heat to produce a series of chemical reactions, then using various physical techniques to isolate the finished product.

Applications Custom Specifications & Capabilities

Our porous and structural materials work well in applications that make chemicals including petrochemicals, industrial gases, dyes and pigments, alkalies and chlorine, alcohols, and various other organic and inorganic chemicals. These basic chemicals are made from mined materials such as crude oil, natural gas, and minerals, or from crops and other natural substances.

Both Mg-PSZ and Y-TZP components have been successfully applied in petrochemical and process industries as valves, seats, and nozzles.  Mg-PSZ is the ideal alternative structural ceramic for applications where a lower cost, strong, tough product of low wear must be used.

If your application is subjected to wear and requires contact with flowing aqueous-based sometimes particle-laden fluids, potentially corrosive liquids and gases or involves warm to hot, potentially corrosive liquids and gases, , Izory® or Izory®X is the product.
