Rapid WHB Retubing at IPL Mount Isa Site with HexProTM Ferrules

In 2014, the operators of the IPL Mount Isa sulphuric acid plant decided their conventional round ferrules were costing too much time in money in frequent replacement and lengthy installation time. 

In the November/December issue of Sulphur Magazine, B. Lamb (MECS), M. Donaghue and R. Gosling (RCR Energy) and L. Leonforte (Incitec Pivot) discuss the installation of MECS© HexPro Ferrules, manufactured by Blasch Precision Ceramics. Post installation, the plant experienced: 

  • 67 % faster installation time of HexPro ferrules
  • the absence of refractory mitigates other adverse effects
  • lower pressure drop, longer service life and reduced maintenance costs
