What Is a Ceramic Liner?
Ceramic liner are a type of coating that prevents abrasion and corrosion by providing a hard surface to machine parts, helping protect equipment from damage and reducing downtime.
Ceramic liner are widely used in a variety of industries, such as oil and gas, petrochemical, power generation, metal & mining and pulp & paper. Furthermore, they come into contact with various types of conveyor belt systems.
Ceramic liner are used to protect equipment against abrasion, which is the friction that occurs between metal surfaces. They can be found on conveyors, chutes, pipe and other machinery in many industrial settings such as oil/gas exploration, mining operations and construction projects.
Wear resistance is a critical factor in equipment longevity and can be enhanced using ceramic lining that resists impact and sliding abrasion. Ceramic lining can be applied to pipe inner surfaces, elbows, reducers, tees and y-pieces for improved longevity.
Ceramic linings are typically embedded into rubber or polyurethane and offer superior abrasion resistance – often outlasting steel by several times.
Alumina ceramic is an ideal material for pipes, elbows, tees and wye fittings that are exposed to corrosive gases. Alumina ceramic has a high hardness which helps it resist abrasion and corrosion damage.
Alumina boasts a diamond-like hardness and fine grain structure, giving it superior strength. As such, alumina is often employed as an economical yet long-term solution in industrial applications.
CorroCeramic liners come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes, from thin ceramic cubes to large monolithic pieces. They are used for many applications across high traffic industries like oil & gas, mining, construction, agriculture and more.
HUDCO ceramic wear liners such as CorroCube and WearLine provide outstanding resistance to impact and sliding abrasion. These liners outpace chrome carbide, AR plate and other alternative solutions in terms of their abrasion resistance capacity. Plus, these linings are easier to install than other abrasive-resistant options and can reduce maintenance costs significantly over time.
These linings are often employed in materials handling applications as a cost-effective alternative to chrome carbide and AR plate linings. Their long-lasting, unique design increases the lifespan of your equipment while improving material flow by preventing narrow sectors from becoming bottlenecks.
Alumina-ceramic tiles are widely used in the mining industry as an abrasion resistant lining for chutes, hoppers and other equipment. They adhere to pipe surfaces using strong high temperature resistant adhesives, providing superior protection from sand, gravel, crushed ore and other coarse materials.
Ceramic liners provide corrosion protection in a variety of applications. Common industries that utilize them include oil and gas, mining, cement, concrete, construction/heavy equipment, as well as agriculture.
Corrosion-resistant liners can reduce system shutdown costs by extending the life of pipes and equipment. Furthermore, they increase safety in environments where chemical exposure is a concern.
Different liners are available to meet different requirements. For instance, there is a ceramic liner with an embedded rubber matrix for improved flow promotion and abrasion resistance; this liner works best in corrosive environments like metal finishing tanks or waste water treatment facilities.
Another type of corrosion-resistant lining is made from tungsten carbide. This material is often employed for industrial, chemical and power generation applications due to its superior acid resistance.
These linings come in a range of shapes to meet your requirements. You’ll find cylinders, trapezoids, bricks and tiles in various sizes for easy installation on pipes and chutes that may have been exposed to abrasives. These liners provide protection from these materials without having to replace existing materials with more delicate ones.
Linings for steel or other substrates offer optimal corrosion protection, and their flexibility allows for installation on curved surfaces as well.
Ceramic liner can be protected with a specialized coating that resists abrasion, corrosion and heat. These liners can be applied in one easy coat, eliminating the need for messy sanding or grinding processes.
In addition to abrasion and corrosion resistance, some liners can also be designed with specific features to maximize performance. For instance, a high impact sliding abrasion liner may be engineered specifically for handling varying particle size distribution in your process stream.
Corrosion Engineering offers CorroTile, a cost-effective lining solution for severe abrasion and impact applications. Constructed from application-specific ceramics and attached to steel backing plates using wear-resistant, energy absorption rubber compounds, CorroTile provides an optimal solution.
These liners can be used in a variety of applications and are ideal for handling sand, crushed aggregate, coal, copper ore, phosphate rock and wood chips. Manufactured in the USA to your specific specifications, these liners provide years of trouble-free performance.
Ceramic liner are widely used in industries requiring materials that can withstand abrasion, corrosion and heat. When applied to industrial processes, ceramic liners help avoid these problems from occurring which can reduce product loss and boost efficiency levels.
Liners are commonly utilized in petrochemical refinery processing plants, power generation facilities and oil & gas pipeline networks. Furthermore, they have applications in mining as well as concrete and cement production.
In these environments, materials must be able to withstand temperatures of over 1200 degrees Fahrenheit. Furthermore, these liners must possess excellent thermal conductivity and be resistant to chemicals present in these settings.
High-grade ceramic lining material can offer exceptional protection in extreme climates. They come in various ceramic types, such as alumina, zirconia and magnesia. These linings are typically manufactured by pressing powder into shapes before firing them at high temperatures in kilns.
Composite ceramic liner are another suitable option for high-temperature applications. These combine abrasive-resistant ceramic with hard metal for additional protection.
These liners are constructed of alumina and can withstand temperatures up to 1000 degrees Celsius. They find applications in equipment like elbows, conveyors, nozzles and pipes.
Ceramic linings are widely used in water and wastewater treatment plants due to their resistance to harsh chemical and corrosive environments. They come in various sizes to fit any requirement.
These liners are manufactured using high temperatures and then cooled to ensure their strength. After shaping and fitting to equipment such as pumps, valves and conveyors, these liners can be mounted onto machinery for transportation.
Heat resistance is one of the most crucial factors when considering heat resistance. Rth, measured in kelvins per watt or degrees Celsius per watt, allows us to compare materials’ durability.
Another factor that can influence how much heat a ceramic tile can withstand is its thickness. Thicker tiles are more heat resistant, while thinner ones have reduced resistance.
