Safeguarding Fertilizer Production: IPC’s Special Valves
When it comes to making fertilizer, it’s no walk in the park. The chemicals involved are tough and harsh, regular valves just can’t handle the heat – the Acidic, Alkaline substances. These substances
lead to corrosion, scaling and leakages in the valves.
Valves for fertilizer industry need to have some special qualities to withstand these harsh enemies
and ensure long service life.
- Corrosion Resistance:
Fertilizers can be corrosive, especially when they contain chemicals such as sulfuric acid or ammonia. Valves need to be made of materials that can withstand corrosion over time. Stainless steel or corrosion-resistant alloys are commonly used.
- Abrasion Resistance:
Some fertilizers may contain abrasive particles, which can cause wear and tear on valve components. Valves with hard coatings or made from materials with high abrasion resistance can help extend their lifespan.
- Chemical Compatibility:
Valves must be compatible with the specific chemicals present in the fertilizers. This includes consideration of the materials used in the valve body, seals, and other components.
- Pressure and Temperature Ratings:
Fertilizer production processes often involve high pressures and temperatures. Valves must have appropriate pressure and temperature ratings to ensure safe and efficient operation.
- Sealing Mechanisms:
Valves need effective sealing mechanisms to prevent leakage of potentially hazardous materials. This involves choosing the right type of seals and ensuring proper installation and maintenance.That’s where IPC comes in, with its specialised valves designed specifically for the fertilizer industry.
- To achieve true quality there is only one right way. IPC Valves are not products of chance they are manifestation of commitment to true quality. At IPC, we don’t just follow standards, we exceed them to ensure you have valves that are product of accuracy, reliability and give long service life.
IPC’s Super Speciality Valves are made from heavy-duty materials like super duplex stainless steel, Inconel alloys, nickel alloys, and hestalloys. These Valves are built to withstand the pressure of fertilizer manufacturing plants.
Stainless Steel valves made from super duplex steel are designed to fight corrosion in even in very harsh conditions. IPC’s GGC and Ball Valves have proven it mettle and are installed in some of the leading fertilizer manufacturing companies.
Inconnel alloys valves act as hotshots in high temperature environments. These valves are tailor-made for scenarios where elevated temperatures are part and parcel, like fertilizer production process.
Nickel alloys and hestalloys valves are used where valves needs to compatible with heavy chemicals and abrasive materials. IPC’s Super Speciality Valves are well-equipped to combat the multifaceted challenges posed by fertilizers, which may contain abrasive substances capable of causing damage to conventional valves.
