Conductive FRP Products
atea Composites also manufactures electrically conductive pure-FRP (FRPel) tanks, vessels, piping and ducting systems. FRPel is used extensively within process and treatment systems that contain explosive and highly reactive substances.
A recent examples include gas treatment systems for polysilicon Industry: atea have supplied process vent treatment and emergency relief treatment systems for chlorosilane gases. Both the chlorosilanes and the product of the hydrolysis reaction (hydrogen) are reactive and potentially explosive. In this circumstance the entire treatment system (knock-out drums, spray towers, scrubbers, ducting, stack and piping is constructed from FRP el and is electrically grounded to prevent static charge build-up and similar ignition source.
