Fluoropolymer heat exchangers can be used in process applications to heat or cool highly corrosive fluids such as ammonium hydroxide and sulfuric and hydrochloric acids. A shell-and-tube design from the company has been incorporated into the Purate model chlorine dioxide generator from Eka Chemicals to supply sulfuric acid solutions. The small-scale generator utilizes a hydrogen peroxide-based chemistry that yields chlorine dioxide by reducing sodium chlorate in the presence of sulfuric acid.
