Coal is one common raw material for the manufacture of coke, which is used as the fuel for blast furnaces. One leading steel producer in India therefore runs its own coal mines in the country. These sites have their coal washeries which employ “dense media” cyclonic separators.

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.

At our Vettelschoss site, we are continuing to invest in improved laboratory facilities: Two new, high-performance furnaces will help in investigating resistance to wear and impact, resistance to temperature fluctuations and the quality of surfaces for our materials. Our objective is to optimise the properties and manufacturing processes for our products and thus to further improve their quality.

On 20.09.2017 the IHK, Germany’s industrial chamber of commerce, held its honour awards for the best in examinations at the Rhein-Mosel-Halle in Koblenz. One of around 400 former trainees, Maximilian Pischel, was given an award by the Industrie und Handelskammer (IHK) of Koblenz for excellent results in his examinations to become an industrial business specialist according to the central Rhine model.

At its factory in Ghent, one of the largest steel producers in the world makes steel products for a wide variety of applications, e.g. in the automotive and building industries. The plant has two blast furnaces, which are continuously filled with coke, sinter and pellets. The result is production of 4.8 million tonnes of pig iron every year.

Iron ore is a key raw material which is extracted as rock from ore mines. Various industrial processing steps refine the ore till it is in the form of pressed pellets. It is in this form that the ore is used for the manufacture of steel. Our customer is the world’s leading producer of iron ore pellets. Right from the founding of Kalenborn do Brasil 15 years ago, the company has been supplying the producer with wear protection solutions for various pieces of 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.

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.

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.

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.
