Lining of ash pipes with wear-resistant fused cast basalt

For more than 15 years, Kalenborn has been a reliable partner for wear protection solutions in the Brazilian market. Every year, we supply hundreds of kilometers of wear-resistant pipes to customers in various industries, including mining, steel and cement production.

Our products are also used in thermoelectric power generation. The hydraulic pipes of a thermal power plant will be delivered from Kalenborn. Wet ash is transported in these pipes. The regional coal has a high content of silica and is an extremely abrasive material. Our wear protection solution: ABRESIST. The world-famous material was developed by Kalenborn in 1921 and is still one of the most efficient solutions for protection against wear in industrial plants. The very hard and smooth surface of ABRESIST ensures good sliding promotion. It is therefore also used to prevent of caking material together.
