Ceramic Liners for Cyclone & Hydrocyclone Applications
Reaction bonded silicon carbide is a multi-phased material typically containing 7-15% silicon metal, some minor amount of unreacted carbon, with the remaining body being SiC. Reaction bonded SiC materials are manufactured utilizing a variety of processes depending on desired final product geometry, configuration, and required tolerances.
Reaction bonded silicon carbide has proven to be an excellent material choice for wear applications such as pipe liners, flow control chokes and larger wear components in the mining as well as other industries. CALSIC RB offers an economical and reliable material option for many applications where the corrosion resistance or wear resistance of CALSIC S (sintered silicon carbide) is not necessary.
Blasch’s turn-key solution for hydrocyclone slurry separators and other mineral processing equipment delivers single-sourced, completed encapsulated assemblies in just weeks. Where required, our proprietary silicon carbide based formulations can be cast into complex shapes and then encased in polyurethane in-house, providing ease of installation, crack mitigation and added wear insurance, all while delivering a complete solution from one vendor. The VERKAPSE process reduces both cost and lead time for customers while providing a product with greater overall durability and reliability.
All proprietary silicon carbide based materials can be cast into very complex shapes, displaying tight and repeatable tolerances that ensure repeated ease of installation. Expect a more abrasion resistant product than cast steels, rubber and urethanes alone at one-third the weight of their steel counterparts. All offer much higher thermal and corrosion resistance.
