Fluoropolymers in
Plant Engineering

Smart and custom tailored plant engineering. Reduced downtime and maintenance costs. Enhanced environmental protection. Lower total cost of ownership.

When you are planning and engineering a new plant you need smart and custom-tailored solutions that reduce the total cost of ownership by helping to make resources more efficient. High-performance materials with the unmatched combination of almost universal chemical resistance, superior corrosion protection, a broad service temperature range, permeation control and ultra-high purity. You need 3M™ Dyneon™ Fluoropolymers.

You will find our fluoropolymers in a huge range of applications, such as in multipurpose plants for pharmaceutical active bulk products; the production of basic, intermediate and speciality chemicals; petrochemical and biodiesel fuel production; crop science; and the manufacture of biocides and fertilisers.

They are there doing their job in the manufacture of paint, ink and toner; food and beverage processing; water treatment equipment and in the production of cleaning and detergent products, the making of flavours and fragrances and the refinement of precious metals.

3M™ Dyneon™ Fluoropolymers provide corrosion and contamination protection in fluid handling systems (e.g. lined PTFE pipes) and storage containers (lined columns, tanks, vessels and reactors), non-sticking and easy to clean surfaces, permeation prevention and dissipation of static charges.

In short, they are contributing to safer plant operation, reduced downtime and maintenance cost, enhanced environmental protection and overall improved productivity.

Food & Beverage

The food and beverage industry must meet the highest industrial hygiene standards.

3M™ Dyneon™ Fluoropolymers provide corrosion resistance against aggressive foods and beverages and caustic fluids which are used to clean the process equipment. The easy to clean surface of fluoropolymers reduces the risk of bacteria growth and contamination.


Chemical & Petrochemical

Corrosion protection is a fundamental requirement to enable the chemical and petrochemical industry to operate plants at maximum yield and without catastrophic failures.

3M™ Dyneon™ Fluoropolymers are best in class for overall chemical resistance and durability over a broad temperature range in continuous service. These capabilities help reduce maintenance downtimes and production outages to optimise Total Cost of Ownership. Our fluoropolymers reduce hydrocarbon emissions to enable a more environmentally friendly operation.


Semicon

In semiconductor manufacturing, non-contaminating fluid handling systems are essential to transport aggressive process fluids.

Our high purity fluoropolymers feature low metal and ion extractables, extreme low impurities, and may improve wafer yields and lead to lower costs.


Paper/Pulp

The pulp and paper manufacturing process comprises steps which all carry the risk of fractures, leaks or corrosion of machinery resulting in paper pollution, production loss and safety hazards.

3M™ Dyneon™ Fluoropolymers are resistant against chemicals used in wood fibre treatment and bleaching. They are used to protect machinery and lead to a significant savings in maintenance costs.


Labware

High purity, stability over a broad temperature range, universal chemical resistance and low surface energy making them easy to clean: 3M™ Dyneon™ Fluoropolymers are a perfect match for labware products used in highly demanding and sensitive analytical applications.


Pharma

In pharmaceutical production plants the key challenge is to avoid product contamination. Equipment needs to show flexibility to allow for quick product change over and compatibility to different chemicals.

3M™ Dyneon™ Fluoropolymers are high purity polymers free of additives and plasticisers which could migrate into the pharmaceuticals, and provide almost unlimited chemical resistance. Due to their low surface energy our fluoropolymer products are easy to clean and pharmaceuticals will not adhere to them.
