Brine solution mining
Recovering dissolved ore—such as lithium, magnesium, and potash—can be a long and arduous process. The successful transportation of brine to your plant depends on the reliability of your pipes, from the orebody all the way to your plant.
This type of mining can challenge material selection. Highly concentrated brine causes long-term damage to most pipes. If the brine temperatures are low, then simple plastics like HDPE can be used, and have been used successfully. However, when temperatures increase — and especially if oxygen is present—you need tougher pipes to withstand corrosion.
A cost-saving solution
To avoid capital expenses, and to improve reliability of operations, consider plastic options. Pexgol can operate at temperatures up to 230°F / 110°C.
The required length of a slurry pipeline is determined by multiple factors, including plant design, process temperature, slurry density and velocity, and plant layout.
The team at Pex Industrial Piping Solutions understands what’s necessary for efficient and long-lasting slurry pipelines.
