COUNTERING the effects of extreme abrasion suffered by pipes, cyclones, vibratory feeder pans and chutes, Kinder & Co's new range of rubber-backed ceramic mats also extend the lifespan of the affected components.
K-Ceramatt combines the resilience of rubber and the wear resistance of ceramic in a 500mm square tile which can be cut and shaped to fit corners and tight radius bends.
Managing director of Kinder & Co, Neil Kinder, says the product is simple to affix and can thus not only save valuable equipment from a premature death, but also keep the downtime required for installation and replacement to an absolute minimum.
"Wear and tear is a big productivity breaker in the materials handling industry, and to have access to a flexible product that performs in harsh environments is a great bonus when lining curved surfaces such as the inside surface of a pipe."
Two sizes are available: 20mm square of 5mm thickness, and 10mm squares of 3mm thickness - in 92% alumina oxide tiles. Tile size is selected according to the radius of the product to be lined.
K-Ceramatt has a rubber backing that is be adhered by conventional cold bonding to pipes, cyclones, vibratory feeder pans, chutes or any other materials flow handling product with a similar performance profile.
