MECS ZeCor Alloy Towers and Pump Tanks Unsurpassed sulfuric acid process knowledge, combined with our exclusive highperforming ZeCor alloys, allows MECS to outperform the industry in the fabrication and operation of corrosion-resistant sulfuric acid plant towers and pump tanks.
Controlling corrosion in plant towers, pump tanks, and every other piece of sulfuric acid equipment ranks among the top concerns of every acid plant owner. MECS ZeCor Towers and Pump Tanks apply our decades of acid plant experience and technology innovation to solve the problem of corrosion. The superiority of our designs resides in our attention to fine details and our quality fabrication. The superiority of our performance lies in our exclusive ZeCor alloys. This unique line of specialty metal alloys is proven to provide long-lasting resistance to corrosion and durable service against the unforgiving abuse of sulfuric acid. Lower Costs and Higher Efficiencies The corrosion-resistant properties of ZeCor help our clients enjoy lower maintenance costs and higher plant productivity. MECS uses ZeCor material to replace traditional brick lining in the tower, so our systems offer reduced weight, easier installation, and lower foundation costs as well. We also employ processes that allow us to make the tower and pump tank diameters smaller a big advantage in lowering capital and operational costs. Our ZeCor Tower and Pump Tank designs feature MECS UniFlo Acid Distributors and Brink Mist Eliminators to dramatically increase efficiency. In many cases, our Towers and Pump Tanks can be shop-fabricated prior to plant shutdown, and staged on site for insertion of these components as well as tower packing. This ensures minimal plant downtime during installation and a quick turnaround on plant revamps, as well as vastly lower future repair downtime. In fact, thanks to all of their material and fabrication advantages, our ZeCor alloy vessels deliver many years of safe, trouble-free operation for improved productivity. High-Performance, Corrosion-Resistant MECS ZeCor Alloys Short for Zero Corrosion, our exclusive line of ZeCor alloys beat sulfuric acid corrosion in a wide range of concentrations, temperatures, and specific applications. When compared to other, lower-performing material choices, the advantages of ZeCor are clear.

A Lower-Cost Alloy ZeCor alloys are less expensive than other alloys, and comparable in cost with traditional, lowerperforming materials, such as cast iron and brick-lined carbon steel. Most importantly, the ZeCor lifecycle cost is the best available. Welding Process MECS uses a proven proprietary welding process with ZeCor alloy filler. The resulting welds meet ASME Code Section IX standards. Easy Repairs ZeCor alloys can be easily welded on site by trained plant maintenance staff. Versatility MECS features ZeCor alloys in a number of our tower and pump tank components, including acid distributors, packing support grids, vortex breakers, mesh pads, and more.
