In the preparation of iron ore, contaminated surface water travels at high velocity through channels to collection basins. The sharp-edged iron ore is highly abrasive to the concrete surfaces there. Frequent repairs are required as a result. Kalenborn lined the floor of the channels with smooth, wear-resistant ABRESIST fused cast basalt moulded elements. Wear-resistant KALCRET ANX hardening compound was selected to protect the less exposed walls. The combination lining has significantly extended service life and eliminated unscheduled repairs.

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.
