Asahi/America Application Story – Mining
A Major Copper Mining Company in the United States was constructing a new Drain Header from the SXEW Plant The drain pipe is typically HDPE with PVC or CPVC Flange X Socket valves depending on operating temperature. This is basically a copper plating application where they plate copper on to stainless steel sheets to a desired thickness an then break off the slabs/plates of copper from the sheets which will be reused. The copper 'slab' is 99+% pure at that point where it will go to another plant for further processing into rod, wire, etc... or sold on the open market as is. Asahi/America offered the perfect solution.
