Sheet membrane system for autoclaves
Koch Knight LLC based in Canton, Oh., offers the Pyroflex sheet membrane system for autoclaves in hydrometallurgy applications. Pyroflex is engineered for maximum durability and lasting pliability in the demanding and extreme environment of autoclave service.
Proven in severe acid environments for over 50 years, Pyroflex remains permanently plastic, outperforming traditional asphaltic and fibre-reinforced resin alternative linings, which become porous and cracked. Pyroflex does not experience thermal decomposition under 260 C. It resists inorganic alkalines such as caustic soda and salts, and it is not affected by reducing agents.
Pyroflex functions as an integral component of an overall lining system, often acting as an expansion joint between brick and shell. Its sheets fuse directly to metal and concrete surfaces, without the need for special adhesives. Adjacent sheets are butted and fused together with joint strips for a continuous uniform lining with no lap joints. Sections can be repaired without compromising the structure of the entire lining.
