The energy industry is a very diverse sector when it comes to finding the right kind of wear protection to strengthen abrasion resistance. Our experts work with power plant and coal production equipment suppliers around the globe to minimize wear and find economical solutions to increase the useful life of the power plant.
Much of the equipment used by thermal power plants is subject to a great deal of wear during the fuel processing and transportation processes. Whether the power plant is using bituminous coal, lignite, biomass or recycling waste, sludge or other residues, Kalenborn has the right wear protection solution for an improved abrasion resistance of machinery and feeding systems. The same is true of the components behind the chambers. Wet de-ashers, drag link conveyors and pneumatic or hydraulic systems for removing the flue ash – Kalenborn has the materials and know-how to ensure longer operating lives and guarantee compliance with environmental specifications.
Sediment in water as a result of glacial run-off or storms cause abrasion and put a great deal of pressure on turbines. It is therefore important to use abrasion resistant equipment to remove gravel and sand. Flushing or diverting channels that are used to prevent the silting up of reservoirs also have to cope with huge quantities of debris in a short period of time. Kalenborn's wear protection materials and systems protect concrete structures and hydraulic steel structures in power plants from otherwise unavoidable abrasion and ensure that particularly exposed areas are protected in a reliable and lasting fashion.
Our commitment to the recycling industry has developed in parallel with the growing market in recycled materials. We are committed to recycling wear protection and sustainable solutions, from processing household and construction waste to electrical waste and vehicle recycling. We equip the recycling processing components with wear protection so that they have the longest possible life. Shredding, crushing, separating, sieving, sorting and transporting – abrasion resistance materials by Kalenborn are used in every stage of the process to protect plant components against wear.
We provide customized industrial wear protection solutions for sewage treatment plants that treat waste water and dispose of effluent for local authorities and private operators. Lifting equipment, pumping cycles and sludge drying are just some examples of the technical equipment and pipelines that are given increased reliability and longer useful lives thanks to our specialist abrasion resistance linings.
