Superior Ceramic Liner for the Most Challenging Industrial Tasks

  • by

Ceramic liner possess remarkable combinations of physical, chemical, thermal, mechanical and electrical properties that make them ideal for many industrial applications. Ceramics come in an assortment of shapes, sizes and thicknesses to meet these demands.

High Wear Resistance

Ceramic liner offers significantly greater toughness than steel, hard chrome and rubber materials, making them an excellent choice for wear-resistant parts and linings. SiC ceramic liner is one such ceramic material which offers outstanding resistance against abrasion and erosion while being shockproof against thermal shocks as well as being corrosion resistant in alkalines and acids environments.

High Temperature Resistance

Ceramic liner has an extremely high melting point, making it difficult to form them into geometric forms that meet performance criteria and functional needs. These durable linings can be applied to various kinds of equipment, from chutes and hoppers to industrial piping systems. Their impact resistance, erosion resistance and abrasion resistance is proven in continuous conveying medium impact tests; furthermore they have up to 10x longer service lives than previous wear-resistant liner types.

High Thermal Conductivity

Ceramic materials are widely utilized for high-tech applications due to their exceptional mechanical and physical properties, including medical implant systems, crowns and turbine rotors. Unfortunately, their hardness and young modulus present conventional finishing processes with significant challenges when trying to meet surface finish and conformity requirements.

Aligning techniques can create effective percolation and alignment of nanoscale fillers in polymer-ceramic composites by optimizing physical contacts between filled particles with minimal filler ion concentration, producing anisotropic structures with good thermal conductivity and electrical insulation as well as low coefficient of thermal expansion.

High Impact Resistance

Ceramics are an indispensable element in many daily products and cutting-edge technologies, from daily necessities such as toothbrushes to cutting edge technologies like autonomous cars. Their ability to withstand extreme temperatures and impact make them ideal for various industrial tasks. Plating ceramics with metal increases their strength further enabling their use in areas otherwise unsuited for other materials.

Rubber’s elastic properties dampen impact shocks that could crack ceramic liner and significantly extends their lifespan, enabling equipment to run for longer between liner replacements compared to typical wear liners in high impact applications (which typically last only one month at seven m/s average velocity). This represents a major advantage compared to similar applications using hard rock or minerals transported at higher velocities where ceramic wear liners fail quickly due to shockwaves from conveyed hard rocks or minerals.
