North Dakota coal-fired power plant solves wear problems in scrubber piping with lined pipes from Kalenborn Abresist Corporation

American Electric Power Gavin Power Plant Uses ABRESIST Basalt Lined Steel Pipe to Convey Abrasive Bottom Ash

KALCRET ANX is a low-cost version of the trowel-application hard compounds for protecting plant components and piping systems against wear. KALCRET ANX offers remarkable resistance to wear at operating temperatures of up to 400°C with exceptional value for money. The basis for the cement-bonded material KALCRET ANX is supplied by selected hard materials of high quality, such as basalt.

Our client, a leading chemical firm from the USA, produces catalysts for the petrochemicals industry. Kalenborn has been supplying solutions and components to the company’s plants for many years now. Among the places where our wear protection is used is a drying plant.

It is an unusual contract when the colour of the wear protection is a key aspect. In the glass industry, though, it is not only extremely high-performance wear protection which is in demand. In order for fully transparent, clear varieties of glass, such as plate glass, not to get dirty during manufacture, it is preferred that white materials only are used. Wear monitoring is intended to provide additional protection for piping and plant components.

Great River Energy’s Coal Creek Station in Underwood, N.D., is fueled 100 percent by lignite coal. Because the pyrites and ash from the lignite are abrasive to the power plant’s pipe lines, Coal Creek had problems with leaking in its pulverizer reject lines. Plant personnel searched for a way to mitigate the effects of this leaking and extend the pipes’ life. They found that wear resistant basalt- and ceramic-lined piping extended the reject piping’s life and reduced maintenance requirements.

Wear resistant linings a benefit for Florida Crushed Stone’s Brookville cement plant.

KALDETECT is a system for monitoring wear. It provides early and reliable warning of when piping or plant components are approaching their end-of-life. It therefore prevents unplanned downtime and repairs and well as any environmental or equipment damage.
