Characteristics of bi metal clad wear resistant pipe

New rare-earth wear-resistant alloy tube is a new technology using EPC EPC vacuum suction casting, the process can avoid all the casting defects (porosity, slag inclusion, loose, deformation major) material ingredients in the original alloy material: FeCr, FeMn, FeMo, Ni, Re, FeSi, add vanadium iron (FeV), niobium iron (FeNb), copper (Cu), make it has both the wear resistance of high alloy casting materials, and has high mechanical strength and impact performance, at the same time improve the weldability of the material.

1. High abrasion resistance:
the rare earth wear-resistant alloy pipe has been equipped with strong abrasion resistance performance. After the addition of FeV, FeNb and Cu, the metallographic structure of the material has changed again. The grain is more compact, the strength is higher and the plasticity is stronger.

2. Good comprehensive performance:
new rare-earth wear-resistant alloy tube is a new technology using EPC EPC vacuum suction casting, the process can avoid all the casting defects (porosity, slag inclusion, loose, deformation major) material ingredients in the original alloy material: FeCr, FeMn, FeMo, Ni, Re, FeSi, add vanadium iron (FeV), niobium iron (FeNb), copper (Cu), make it has both the wear resistance of high alloy casting materials, and has high mechanical strength and impact performance, at the same time improve the weldability of the material.

3. High temperature resistance:
strong corrosion resistance.The content of Ni and Cr elements in the alloy directly determines the temperature resistance of the material.The content of Cr element and Cu element determines the corrosion resistance of the material. The reasonable combination of these elements enables this new type of rare earth wear-resistant alloy to have several properties at the same time, and can be used under various harsh working conditions.

4. Advanced technology:
stable performance.EPC die - loss vacuum suction casting new technology, mold size precision high, materials uniform structure, performance stability, especially for straight pipe, reducing pipe, unequal thickness pipe, eccentric pipe, cone pipe can achieve integral casting.

5.Low resistance of pipeline system:
the change of metallographic structure makes the matrix grain of casting more compact.The advanced process eradicates the phenomenon of porosity of pores, slag inclusion and structure. The inner wall of the pipeline is smooth like mirror after being transported through a period of time, which greatly reduces the running resistance of the pipeline, improves the service cycle of the pipeline and further improves the wear-resisting property of the material.

6. Convenient installation:
flange, quick joint and direct welding can be used for installation.Due to the addition of FeV, FeNb and Cu, new materials are improved through heat treatment, but at the same time it ensures the random cutting, missing, welding and other installation means of materials.

The production process of bimetal wear - resistant pipe with epc casting process

Epc is also called the real mold casting, will be the same as the casting dimension of foam model after brush refractory materials and drying, buried in the sand dry quartz sand or orb, magnesia olivine sand vibration model, and then under the negative pressure casting, the foam model gasification, liquid metal model position, after cooling solidification form a new type of foundry casting method.Epc technology is praised as "the green revolution of foundry industry".

Epc process:


Process features:

Flexible design: provides sufficient freedom for structural design of casting.A highly complex casting can be made by a combination of foam plastic molds.

Reduce investment and production cost: reduce casting blank weight and machining allowance.

No sand core in the traditional casting: therefore, the thickness of the casting in the traditional sand mold casting will not be uneven due to the incorrect size of the sand core or the inaccurate location of the lower core.

High casting precision: epc casting is a new process of near zero tolerance and accurate molding, which requires no mold taking, no dividing surface, and no sand core. As a result, the casting has no flying edge, burr and drawing slope, and reduces the size error caused by mold core combination.

Clean production: no chemical binders in sand moulds, foam plastics is environmentally friendly at low temperature, and the recovery rate of old sand is over 95%.

Process summary:

Epc equipment process, like other foundry processes, has its shortcomings and limitations. Not all castings are suitable for epc production.
