Ferric Chlorides

Ferric chloride is used to bind hydrogen sulphide, for phosphate precipitation and further as a precipitant in simultaneous precipitation and generally in biological wastewater treatment as a flocculant. In the chemical industry, it is used as a selectively acting catalyst in many Friedel-Crafts reactions. Conventional stainless steel cannot be used to seal ferric chlorides from ferric chlorides.

Here, it is recommended to use a material made of titanium. For cost reasons, we have designed a BI-metal mechanical seal for such applications. This means that only all elements of the mechanical seal that comes into contact with the product are made of a higher quality material. This saves costs for the operator, with maximum service life.
