The differences between self-burning ceramic pipes and wear-resistant ceramic pipes

The wear-resistant pipe is made of high temperature synthesis and centrifugal pouring. The steel pipe is placed in the tube mold of the centrifuge, and the thermite is added into the steel pipe. When the centrifuge tube mold rotation reaches a certain speed, the thermite is ignited by ignition. The thermite immediately burns and spreads rapidly, and violent chemical reactions occur when spreading. The sintered material is thrown to the inner wall of the steel pipe by centrifugal force and solidified in layers. From the inside to the outside, corundum porcelain layer, iron transition layer and outer steel pipe layer are formed. The inner wall of the wear-resistant pipe is generally gray black. Self-burning ceramic wear-resistant tube is lightweight and inexpensive. Self-craning ceramic wear-resisting tube has low running resistance, good wear-resisting performance, and its wear-resisting life is more than ten times that of quenched steel.

And wear-resistant ceramic pipe is different, it is to paste alumina ceramic lining plate or porcelain, porcelain tube to the inner wall of the steel pipe, combined with the characteristics of high hardness, high wear resistance, corrosion resistance, high temperature resistance of alumina ceramic. The service life is dozens of times more than ordinary steel pipe. Generally speaking, wear-resistant ceramic pipes have better wear-resistant performance than self-propelled burning pipes, and more practicability than self-propelled burning.

Self-burning ceramic pipes and wear-resistant ceramic pipes are both types of ceramic pipes that are designed for specific applications. While they have some similarities, there are also some key differences between the two.

1. Manufacturing Process: The main difference between self-burning ceramic pipes and wear-resistant ceramic pipes lies in their manufacturing process. Self-burning ceramic pipes are made by shaping or molding clay into pipe forms and then firing them at high temperatures to create a hardened ceramic material. On the other hand, wear-resistant ceramic pipes are manufactured using a different process. They involve the deposition of a wear-resistant ceramic coating onto a metal pipe substrate through techniques like thermal spraying or plasma spraying.

2. Applications: Self-burning ceramic pipes are primarily used in applications that require high-temperature resistance and thermal insulation. They are commonly used in industries such as metallurgy, power generation, cement manufacturing, and chemical processing. Wear-resistant ceramic pipes, on the other hand, are specifically designed for applications where the pipe needs to withstand abrasive and erosive environments. They are commonly used in industries such as mining, coal-fired power plants, dredging, and chemical processing.

3. Performance: Self-burning ceramic pipes offer excellent resistance to high temperatures, corrosion, and thermal shock. They have a low coefficient of thermal expansion, which allows them to withstand rapid changes in temperature without cracking. Wear-resistant ceramic pipes, on the other hand, provide superior resistance to abrasion, wear, and impact. The ceramic coating on the inner surface of the wear-resistant pipes acts as a protective layer, preventing the pipe from deteriorating due to abrasive materials or erosive forces.

4. Lifespan: Due to their different features and applications, self-burning ceramic pipes and wear-resistant ceramic pipes have different lifespans. Self-burning ceramic pipes can have a long lifespan if they are properly installed and maintained, with some lasting 15-20 years or more. Wear-resistant ceramic pipes, on the other hand, have a shorter lifespan due to the constant exposure to abrasive materials and erosive forces. The ceramic coating on wear-resistant pipes may need to be periodically inspected, repaired, or replaced to ensure continued performance.

Self-burning ceramic pipes are designed for high-temperature resistance and thermal insulation, while wear-resistant ceramic pipes are specifically designed to withstand abrasive and erosive environments. Their manufacturing processes, applications, performance, and lifespans differ accordingly.
