El Dorado is the only manufacturer of Bromine ISO Shipping Containers in North America. Our containers are currently in service with all of the major bromine producers in the world. We manufacture ISO's ranging in capacity from 6000 Liter to 8000 Liter Capacities. These containers are built per regulatory bodies including:
ABS/CSC, IMO Type I (IMDG Code)
RID/ADR, U.S. DOT 51 (Consultative)
ASME Section VIII, Div. 1
National Board Certified
All lead lined shipping containers have a homogeneous chemical lead lining installed as per all regulatory bodies requirements. All lead lining testing is per El Dorado Quality Control Standards and per our clients specifications.
In addition to ISO Shipping Containers, our range of products and services also include the development and manufacturing of specialty size UN Portable Tanks. These smaller sizes, also referred to as "Pigs" or "Eggs", have been fabricated to ship quantities from 125 Liters to 1250 Liter capacities. Various physical dimensions and configurations are available as well.
These containers have a homogeneous chemical lead lining installed as per the respective code for all UN Portable Tanks. All lead lining testing is per El Dorado Quality Control Standards and per our clients specifications.
El Dorado has manufactured over 100 Bromine Storage Tanks varying in size from 1,000 to 20,000 Gallon Capacity, and in vertical and horizontal configurations. Homogenous lead linings vary from .200" to .500" thicknesses, dependent upon customer specifications. All tanks are ASME "U" stamped. All lead lining testing is per El Dorado Quality Control Standards and per our clients specifications.
Our field crews can provide annual maintenance inspections, along with any necessary field repairs. Our National Board "R" Stamp allows us to perform any required steel repairs in the field as well. All inspections and repairs are documented fully for your reliability team.
Wet Electrostatic Precipitators remove acid mists, metals, particulate, and
dusts that are present in process gas streams. These cleaning systems vary
in design, size, and production capabilities. We have experience
fabricating and installing the following designs: Joy, Western, Lurgi,
Belco, Hugo Peterson, Cottrell, etc.
Since the precipitators invention in 1907, Lead has been the preferred and
optimal material of construction for them. Our personnel can mobilize
globally for emergency on-site repairs, or complete rebuilds of existing
units. Construction and repair can include structural support, vessels,
internal components or any part thereof.
A homogeneously bonded lead lining is a metallurgically joined laminate of
lead and another metal, usually steel. Combining the strength of steel with
the excellent corrosion resistance of lead, this type of vessel will
withstand rapidly fluctuating temperatures, high pressures, thermal shock,
vibration and physical shock, and will perform well in vacuum service.
Brick/Lead vessels have an outer shell of steel or concrete, a lead lining,
and courses of chemical-resistant masonry set with a suitable cement. The
masonry in Brick/Lead vessels protects the lead lining from high
temperatures, rapid temperature fluctuations, erosion and mechanical abuse.
It also eliminates a large portion of heat losses and provides enough
support for the lining to allow good performance in vacuum service. The lead
acts as an impermeable, corrosion-resistant membrane to contain the
chemicals that seep through the porous masonry.
Panel Bond System
The El Dorado Panel Bond System was developed with maintenance and the
corrosive resistant properties of lead in mind. Our Panel Bonded Lead liner
is installed in such a fashion so that at least one vertical edge is
homogeneously bonded to steel shell, the first panel bonded on both edges,
the following ones bonded on one side, the other lead burnt to previously
bonded panel. This insures that each panel is isolated from the others,
allowing for ease of maintenance in life of lining.
Types of Equipment that employ these types of linings includes but is not
El Dorado can manufacture replacement parts for your existing equipment per
customers specifications and per El Dorado Quality Control Standards. Parts
can be fabricated and shipped for installation prior to your next scheduled
outage / turnaround. These parts can include but is not limited to:
El Dorado can design and fabricate tanks for all surface finishing applications. Tanks can be fabricated from carbon and stainless steels with applicable lead liners. Preferred lead lining thickness is either 3/16” or 1/4” with lead sheet. Supported strapping can be employed depending on tank size.
Heating and Cooling Coils are made from extruded lead pipes with solid lead or homogeneously bonded lead supports for anodizing, electroplating, and other specialty applications. There are numerous configurations and designs to consider, each factor dependent upon the application or processes. These designs include but are not limited to: Battery Acid Cell Heat Exchangers, Collapsed Bend, Dished Spiral, Double Helical, Flat Spiral, Gel Acid Mixing, Helical Spiral, and Return Bend.
El Dorado is a manufacturer of specialty anodes, anodes for Tin Mills in the Steel Industry, and anode plates for the SX/EW operations throughout North America. Our quality assurance program verifies fabrication is always performed to meet specific customer requirements
El Dorado offers on-site maintenance for annual outages and emergency service for all products listed beforehand.
