TANTALUM COLUMN: PERFECT FOR HCL STRIPPING AT HIGH PRESSURE

Mersen offers solid, lined or cladded tantalum columns and has developed CL-Clad®, Mersen’s patented cladding technology for the fabrication process. Mersen columns combine the mechanical resistance of a metallic equipment with the exceptional corrosion resistance of tantalum. As a result, CL-Clad® technology is the most reliable solution to handle highly corrosive processes in the most severe service conditions (high pressure, full vacuum and high temperature).

Mersen Tantalum Columns are suitable for the following corrosive environments:

  • Hydrochloric acid
  • Sulfuric acid
  • Nitric acid
  • Strong organic acids
  • Bromine
  • Epichlorydrin
