Detail Engineering for new Lixiviation Pre-reactor in the Las Cruces hydro-metallurgic copper plant

Detail engineering of a leaching reactor at the Las Cruces Copper Works in Seville. 

To increase the recovery of copper, the need to raise the residence time of the acid pulp in the leaching process was considered, including in line a new super duplex stainless steel leaching tank.

A design was drawn up for finite elements of the super-duplex stainless steel tank, with stirrer and hydraulic stamp in accordance with regulation API 650, as well as the connection of the various lines (cold refining, hot refining, oxygen, pulp, etc.) with the rest of the installation. The design includes equipment selection, implementation, removal of the current installations by 3D scanner, 3D design of the new isometrics, supports and calculation of corrosive/abrasive fluid stress on steel and FRP piping at high temperatures. 

The new installation was implemented whilst the plant continued to operate.

Scope was increased, with the addition of subsequent work supervision and technical construction management.
