Flotation plant commences operations at Wacker Chemie

The new flotation plant installed at Wacker Chemie started operations in December.

The Wacker plant represents a challenge to the materials, with the tank and the skimmer having to be made entirely of plastic as an aggressive medium predominates in the form of hydrochloric acid.

Due to the in-house manufacture, the chain links were able to be hosed down in a special material for the skimmer and everything else from the tank to the fixtures were made of durable plastic.
