Acid Manufacturing

Acid Manufacturing

Access specialized refractory expertise from design to construction

Few environments are tougher on vessels and their linings than today’s acid manufacturing operations. Intense levels of corrosion and high operating temperatures can have complex, and sometimes surprising, effects on the mechanical properties and integrity of not only vessels and linings—but also overall uptime and throughput.

Southwest Refractory offers world-renowned in-house expertise when it comes to engineering and installing complex acid vessel linings—from advanced understanding of a material’s corrosion-resistance characteristics to detailed thermal profiles and thermomechanical studies.

Our superior engineering package includes detailed as-built drawings and extensive tech specs covering everything from materials and testing to inspection and maintenance. And we employ some of the world’s leading refractory bricklayers, who understand the intricacies of their craft in relation to the acid manufacturing process.

For decades Southwest Refractory has helped acid plants of all types and sizes better protect vessels, equipment and infrastructure with a higher standard of protective services. From sulfur furnaces to acid towers, boilers and more, we go beyond fit-for-purpose installations to make each lining system in your facility a true work of art.
