Flow Control Solutions for Chemical Process Industries

Chemical production can involve abrasive mediums, such as titanium dioxide, paints and lime slurry, as well as highly corrosive chemicals. Flowrox has delivered over 20,000 products to boost process performance at hundreds of chemical production facilities globally.


Customer challenges

The medium in chemical producing facilities may be abrasive, corrosive or both. These customers face challenges when selecting materials that can survive both corrosiveness and abrasiveness. The importance of finding the right solution is highlighted even more with very abrasive mediums, such as titanium dioxide or other similar chemicals containing abrasive particles.

In corrosive environments, chemical producers can resort to high-cost exotic alloys to maintain process conditions at an acceptable level. The total cost of achieving this performance tends to be very high.

Abrasive particles and high velocity may cause short service intervals and operational issues for conventional flow control equipment. This inevitably leads to unwanted costs and downtime.

Our solution

It is essential for process flow control equipment to be reliable while enabling a low total cost of ownership throughout its lifetime. This is achieved by reducing the consumption of spare parts, maintenance hours and downtime.

Flowrox flow control solutions are built to last in the harsh process conditions found in various chemical processes. In such processes it is a big advantage to have only one wear-resistant valve part in contact with the medium. 

Flowrox products are designed to withstand wear caused by abrasive mediums containing particles and powders by effectively limiting it to the elastomer sleeve or hose, which is the primary wear element.

Flowrox elastomers offer excellent resistance to ferric chloride, sodium hypochlorite, hydrochloric acid and a huge number of other chemicals and chemical mixtures. In almost all cases, a suitable elastomer material can be found for most of the chemicals.

Excellent wear resistance against harsh chemical mediums Bubble tight closing minimizes the risk of any leakages The inside sleeve is the only replaceable part and also only part in contact with the process medium Full bore structure without restrictions
Low total cost of ownership based on advanced single roller design Accurate and reliable dosing, ideal for various chemical applications No mixing or shearing of the medium Pump hose is the only replaceable part and can be easily changed on site
Compact, fast, simple and safe installations Engineered pump units equipped with simple site connections Accurate and repeatable flow while reducing maintenance time and cost
