Upon delivery to sugar factories, beets are transported by conveyor belts or water flumes to the beet washing unit, where sand, leaves and stones are removed. The flume conveyor portion of this application is primarily subject to impact wear, while the rest of the application is subject to high abrasive wear.
One of our customers is a plant manufacturer that is among Europe’s biggest producers of boilers used in coal-fired power stations and waste incineration plants. En route to the burners, the coal dust pipelines branch into the so-called “coal dust distributors”. Their complex geometries and the high velocity of the abrasive medium subject them to extreme wear.
Vibrating conveyors are a type of conveyance system which uses vibration to convey materials along a horizontal route. In steelworks, for example, they are used underneath ore bunkers for the discharging of sinter materials. Such material causes major wear to the conveyors, frequently resulting in abrasion damage to the system. The lifetime of such vibrating conveyors can be considerably extended by means of effective wear protection.
The metallic materials from Kalenborn are suitable for a wide range of industrial applications – and KALMETALL-W is one of them. The armour plates with different thicknesses and quality grades are noted for their excellent wear resistance and impact strength.
Ports are important facilities that handle all kinds of goods and products. In the north of France, the main products that are shipped are foodstuffs and oil products as well as ore and coal. Several cranes operate every single day and transport the goods from ships to land.
