Fluoropolymer Lining for a Chlorine Scrubber

A chlorine scrubber fabricated from fiberglass-reinforced plastic (FRP) was installed in 1977. Major repairs began in 1981 and continued at four-year intervals. After exploring several replacement materials, a FRP/ethylene-chlorotrifluoroethylene dual laminate scrubber was selected. This was installed in 1987 and remained in continuous service until the plant shut down in 2001. Examination shortly after plant closing showed the liner to be in excellent condition.
