Have increased environmental regulations required you to embrace new scrubbing technologies? Wet Flue Gas Desulfurization (FGD) scrubbing technologies involve limestone and gypsum slurry solutions which are abrasive and corrosive in nature. Carbon steel and alloy material options are generally not reliable or sustainable for this service.
For both financial and safety reasons, FRP has become a reliable and cost-effective solution for wet FGD applications at many power generation stations. However, the exposure to both corrosive and abrasive chemical environments makes monitoring the condition of the process equipment critical. At Maverick Applied Science we strongly encourage you to conduct an annual Maintenance Assessment Program, which includes visual inspections and other non-destructive testing measures.
As the power utilities have gained confidence in FRP, applications have expanded to include:
Abrasion resistant piping for slurry service
Reagent and gypsum storage tanks
Large diameter ductwork
Large field fabricated scrubber vessels

We believe in solving root causes, not patching issues
Inspection of nonmetallic equipment, in order to make informed decisions on equipment maintenance and to maximize system performance.
Design and supply of supports to ensure the safety and long-term reliability of FRP and thermoplastic piping systems.
In-depth physical and analytical testing of nonmetallic materials for material validation and failure investigation.
