John Turner & Sons is a large scale lead-fabricator for industrial markets throughout South Africa. Their specialty is Lead Fabrication and Lead Burning for the acid and mining process plants.
The company was founded in Zimbabwe and Zambia in 1969. After great success with the quality of their products and service delivering the company expanded and moved its base of operation to South Africa in 1980 where the name was registered to “John Turner & Sons Engineering SA (Pty) Ltd”.
John Turner & Sons have a reputation for constantly meeting the expectations of clients. They are always striving to offer the best level of service both in and out of projects and to deliver products that adhere to the highest standards.
Wet Electrostatic Mist Precipitators For Sulphuric Acid Plants
A wet electrostatic precipitator (WESP or wet ESP) operates with water vapor saturated air streams (100% relative humidity). WESPs are commonly used to remove impurities from the acid mist from industrial processes. The WESP is also commonly used where the gases are high in moisture content. This is a crucial process as it lessens the impact on the environment and leads to the creation of a by-product which can be used in other industries, i.e. electrowinning process, swimming pool water purification, etc.
John Turner And Sons have also branched out to provide a plastic tube variation in addition to the regular lead tubes.
Lead Lining Of Vessels And Pipes
John Turner And Sons offer lead lining services for pipes and vessels to protect against chemical corrosion for the storage, gas cleaning and usage in pressure leach vessels for the mining sectors (platinum, copper, zink, etc). Lead lining is a crucial process in the mining industry as it protects against chemical wear and tear resulting in an improved lifespan for the vessels.
Homogeneous Lead Lining Of Pressure Leach Autoclaves
This is a highly complex task requiring specially trained artisans in the homogeneous application of lead. The purpose of this process is similar to regular lead lining but with a far superior end result as the lead is homogeneously welded to the steel giving an air-tight bond between the two metals which offers superior mechanical protection and vessel lifespan.
John Turner And Sons also perform homogeneous lead lining on the entire inside of calcine reactors.
Fabrication Of Lead Tube Gas Star Coolers
Gas Star Coolers are designed to cool the gas released from industrial metal smelters. John Turner And Sons have manufactured over 40 of these vessels and delivered them from the copper mines in Zambia to the platinum mines in Rustenburg, South Africa. These Gas Star Coolers are available in different sizes with the smallest being 121 tubes and the largest being 547 tubes.
Fabrication Of Heating And Cooling Coils For The Chrome Plating And Paint Pigment Industries
John Turner And Sons manufacture many different types of cooling and heating coils ranging from the electroplating of chrome to acid cooling in the paint pigment industry.
Specialists In Lead Cladding And Lead Flashing (Architectural)
John Turner And Sons have been involved in the lead lining of rooftops on large corporate structures in Johannesburg, Pretoria and Cape Town, in South Africa. The lead that John Turner And Sons applies is rolled and manufacturing in-house to the specifications of the client (thickness, width, length, etc.).
John Turner And Sons have also been involved in the lead lining of X-Ray rooms throughout major hospitals in South Africa, and for radiation shielding for the storage of isotopes.
