The production of asphalt involves the movement of high volumes of solids that abrade and erode equipment. Over the equipment lifetime, ongoing maintenance and replacement can result in extra expense and increased downtime. Wear resistant linings from Saint-Gobain provide unmatched abrasion and corrosion resistance and last many times longer than carbon steel.
Saint-Gobain produces strong, cost-effective linings that stand up to the rigors of heavy industry and extend the lifetime of equipment. As the industry leader in ceramic materials and applications expertise, Saint-Gobain can line or retrofit the following with WRT materials:
Saint-Gobain produces many material types that withstand highly abrasive and corrosive environments including:
Linings from Saint-Gobain match up to existing fittings for easier installation. The properties of SiC and AZS bricks ensure extended product life, reduced maintenance and increased production capabilities.
From state-of-the-art materials to a strong focus on R&D, custom engineered solutions from Saint-Gobain provide better value over equipment lifetimes.
The company offers global sourcing capabilities, material and design expertise and vast shape capabilities. FEA analysis is part of the R&D process to ensure materials always meet performance and quality requirements.
Stronger materials reduce downtime, allow for increased throughput and minimize maintenance costs. Shapes and liners from Saint-Gobain ensure tighter tolerances than traditional refractory bricks, resulting in shorter installation time with fewer field adjustments.
