At the largest iron ore mine project in the world, Kalenborn solutions help operators eliminate sliding wear problems on a classifier housing chute. The $14 billion mine in northern Brazil produces more than 90 million tonnes per year of high-grade ore, and includes mine, plant, railway and port logistics.
In its XTribology project, the research centre of AC2T research is laying the foundation for tremendous increases in efficiency with pioneering trends in wear protection. The underlying goal is to prevent equipment component failures in primary industries as well as in raw material excavation and energy production.
At its largest plant, the world’s leading producer of titanium dioxide has greatly extended the service life of critical piping with Kalenborn abrasion-resistant solutions. Titanium dioxide pigments add brightness and durability to paints, plastics, paper and other everyday products.
Kalenborn Delma and Kalenborn Bazalt joined their forces as one company Kalenborn Polska on SYMAS in Kraków. This exhibition shows a growing demand and big potential for wear protection during material handling and transportation of powders, ash and solids materials.
One of the largest global producers of building materials relies on Kalenborn solutions at a California cement plant to solve problems of premature wear and clogging on a pneumatic conveyance line for alternative fuel. The plant, which has received EPA Energy Star certification and multiple awards for its environmental-protection and land-stewardship efforts, produces more than 3 million tons of cement annually.
At one of its largest bio-solids recycling plants, a leading company in the biomass industry has specified a trio of Kalenborn abrasion-resistant solutions to extend the life of critical ducting. The state-of-the-art thermal drying facility is part of a joint venture with a major U.S. city and the plant handles all the city’s bio-solids.
