What is the temperature of the wear-resistant tube with ceramic patch technology? How about the paste strength?

As a result of the use of paste technology, the main use of high-temperature, high-strength adhesives for pasting ceramic patches, and most of the use of high polymer adhesive temperature is not higher than 200 degrees, and the higher the temperature, adhesive strength is lower, aging speed also increased rapidly.

Therefore, the use of paste ceramic technology, the workpiece temperature is generally not higher than 150 ℃, under this temperature, the general ceramic and metal paste strength can reach 200 kg/cm. For higher than this temperature components, can be used ceramic composite wear-resistant process treatment, so that the use of temperature can reach 500 or more than 700 degrees.

What are ceramic tile lined pipes?

Ceramic tile lined pipes are a type of steel pipe that have been lined internally with ceramic tiles to provide superior resistance to wear, abrasion, and corrosion. The ceramic tiles are typically made from high-grade alumina ceramics, which are known for their hardness, strength, and durability.

Ceramic tile lined pipes are commonly used in applications where the pipes are exposed to harsh environments, such as in mining, power generation, and chemical processing. The ceramic lining provides superior wear resistance, protecting the underlying steel pipe from premature failure due to abrasion or corrosion.

In addition to their excellent wear properties, ceramic tile lined pipes may also provide benefits such as reduced friction, improved flow rates, and lower maintenance costs. They may also be used in applications where hygiene is important, as the ceramic lining is non-toxic and does not react with most chemicals.

Ceramic tile lined pipes may be manufactured in various sizes and shapes, including elbows, tees, and reducers, to meet the specific requirements of each application. The ceramic tiles may be bonded to the steel pipe using specialized adhesives, and may be installed using conventional welding techniques.

While ceramic tile lined pipes can offer significant benefits in terms of wear resistance and longevity, they are typically more expensive than traditional steel pipes due to the cost of the ceramic lining and specialized manufacturing processes.

Application area of ceramic tile lined pipes

The use of Ceramic tile lined pipe and fittings is ideal in services that are prone to erosive wear, and where standard pipe and fittings would fail within 24 months or less.

Ceramics with very low friction factor at low impingement angles decreases the abrasion of materials maximally. Its low density makes it easy to carry and install.

These ceramic lined fittings include elbows, bend, reducers and T pipes are bonded with the abrasion resistant alumina or ZTA ceramic tiles into the inner wall of the carbon steel pipes/elbows with strong-high-temperature resistant adhesive, thus form a firm abrasion resistant layer.

This method mainly applied in the pneumatic&hydraulic conveying system and it can be applied in almost all kinks of pipe fittings like coal powder conveying pipes and elbows,dusting,ash, slag removing pipes ,elbows,reducer,T pipe and cross pipe, even laterals, mining slurry conveying pipe fittings and so on. Almost no limitation for the the diameter of the pipe fittings.

A conventional ceramic tip was arranged with a certain gap between tips in a steel pipe so that the pipe was damaged at the gap before the tip was worn out. The newly developed ceramic tip has a shape with no straight line portion parallel to the transport direction so that the steel pipe is protected until the tip is worn out.

The tailings that are in the pipeline hydraulic transport,which are the phenomena known as the wear abrasion,fatigue,impact.

Have seen that,the use of a tube is 6mm in lenght,the pipe wall thickness was 20mm,and after 8 mounths of using,the bottom is correded till the pipe has 1mm of thickness.

The pipe lined by Dahua has the advantage of the 3mm to 4mm of thickness after 12 mounth of use.

The direction of alignment of ceramics in zig zag,have excellent resistance tc friction of abrasive agents such as sand,gravel,gravel,tailings with solid particles,scale,coal,pulp, tailings from phosphate,salt slag, sludge,ash,..

The ceramic alumina pressure has superior performance against abrasion,wich has five times more resistant than the conventional ceramic. If the objective is protection of components and reduced maintenance costs,the correct application of anti-abrasive lining led immediately to track the economy. If the objective is protection of components and reduced maintenance costs,the correct application of anti-abrasive lining led imediately to track the economy.

The ceramic pipe lining of hydraulic and pneumatic conveying transport has efficiency and economy,especially in steel tubes.Where they have great advantages, increasing the time of life.

Metals have good ductility but poor resistance to abrasion - which means that abrasion prevention is required when metal pipes are used in high-temperature fluid catalyst service. On the other hand, ceramics possess great hardness and abrasion resistance, but they are brittle. Metal Ceramic double pipe is a hybrid pipe using metal as an outer pipe and a ceramic material for inner pipe segments, applied together to utilize the two materials' advantages. Hence excellent wear-resistance and good corrosion resistance of the ceramics and high strength and toughness of metal can be well combined to get a comprehensive advantage of wear-resistance, corrosion-resistance and anti-scaling. They are suitable for applications in heavy wear working conditions.

Ceramics are among the hardest materials available and provide ultimate wear resistance in piping. In high wear applications, ceramic lined pipes have been demonstrated to be cost-effective by increasing service life and reducing maintenance costs. Sunny Steel supply ceramic lined abrasion resistant steel pipes to your custom dimensions and budget. Our ceramic linings are the highest quality materials available to ensure that we provide the most cost-effective solutions for our clients.
