  • Extremely high corrosive liquid
  • High working temperature
  • Mild conditions


PEXGOL PIPES USED: Pexgol ѓ225, ѓ280 mm.

APPLICATION: Transportation of high temperature KCL+NaCl brine


LENGTH: Straight sections of a few meters; 40 meters in total

The Challenge

The highly concentrated brine of the Dead Sea Works hot leach cycle reached 114°C/237°F. This highly corrosive environment dramatically reduced the lifespan of the original pipes. Working conditions were so extreme that the steel alloy piping could only last 8 to 12 months.

Pexgol's Piping Solution

For the last 20+ years, this potash processing plant has used Pexgol pipes without any failures or replacements. The pipe’s high resistance to abrasion, corrosion, and high temperatures reduced changeover in the piping system. Pexgol has proven the best solution for this client.
