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.

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.

Kalenborn Bazalt and Kalenborn Delma will be exhibiting new applications for wear protection at the largest trade fair covering transport and logistics for bulk materials in Poland. They will be showing off their full range of wear-protection materials for transport, handling and storage of bulk goods.

From 18 to 21 September, Kalenborn do Brasil will be present at one of the largest mining trade fairs in Latin America. On show will be the company’s full range of wear-proof materials and innovative wear protection solutions for conveyance and storage in coal mines, ore and mineral extraction, as well as raw materials processing.

About 30% of the steel manufactured in Germany is made of recycled scrap metal. The old scrap material is not rendered molten in a blast furnace but in an electric arc furnace with the help of a DC arc process. This process requires an electric arc with 100 megawatts of power which is ignited in the furnace to produce temperatures of about 1,600°C. The flue gas, which is developed as the metal melts, flows out through a modern flue gas cleaning plant before being vented from the works.

Linings with KALCRET protect plant components and pipes. There are already many successful applications throughout the raw materials industry, for example in mining, in power plants, in the steel and cement industries, and in waste incineration plants.

The south of France not only boasts olive plantations and fields of lavender. The region is also home to cement works which present Kalenborn with new challenges.

Kalenborner wear protection solutions are also used in applications one would not necessarily think of, for instance in wastewater treatment plants. During the treatment process, many kinds of solid matter are removed that can cause considerable wear to the plant. KALCRET is the remedy.
