Stainless steel is widely used in mining because of its special properties.
Crimidesa is a private mining corporation, with the industrial operation of a huge potential glauberite deposit in Cerezo de Rio Tirón (Burgos, Spain), from which anhydrous sodium sulphate is obtained. This product is used as raw material in many types of industries, such as the manufacturing of powder detergents, glass, paper pulp, textiles, enzymes, metallurgical processes and more.
During the process stainless steel AISI 316 is used due to its good performance against diluted sulphuric acid solutions. The constant evolution in the treatment and process of this product makes the use of high strength and resistance corrosion stainless steel crucial.
