Which Kalenborn Abresist Material is Suitable for Your Application?

Wear Resistant Lining Suggestions for a Wide Range of Abrasion Problems

The information contained in the following chart is useful in many cases. However, due to the unpredictable nature of wear caused by abrasion, impact, corrosion and temperature, sometimes we have no strong recommendation or may recommend more than one wear resistant linings material.

In general though, the range of available materials and our past experience enables Kalenborn Abresist Corporation to assist you in choosing the best solution taking into account cost, service life, possible product contamination, connection difficulties, ease of installation, etc.

 

Combining wear resistant linings, like ALRESIST high alumina ceramics and ABRESIST fused cast basalt linings, are also effective if wear intensity varies is different areas.
Combined linings are also an effective and economical solution if the wear is of varying intensity in different areas.

Which Lining Material for Which System Component?


No two abrasion problems are identical. The question of which lining material is most suitable and most economical for a particular application can only be answered when all parameters of the abrasion problem are known.
