Great River Energy – Wear Resistant Lining Extends Pulverizer Rejects Piping Life

Great River Energy’s Coal Creek Station in Underwood, N.D., is fueled 100 percent by lignite coal. Because the pyrites and ash from the lignite are abrasive to the power plant’s pipe lines, Coal Creek had problems with leaking in its pulverizer reject lines. Plant personnel searched for a way to mitigate the effects of this leaking and extend the pipes’ life. They found that wear resistant basalt- and ceramic-lined piping extended the reject piping’s life and reduced maintenance requirements.

KALENBORN ABRESIST: Wear protection – slide promotion

Potassium salts are recovered in mining and are a major component of many fertilizers. For refining, the salts are separated from other solids in several stages. This complex process is possible only in robust plants with excellent wear protection. It is exactly in this field that Kalenborn Abresist has been proving itself for over 20 years with pipe lining from ABRESIST.

Lafarge Cement Canada Cyclones

Case History: Lafarge Canada

Quench tempered steel linings in six cyclones at a Canadian cement plant required patching at an annual cost of $60,000 to $80,000, nearly half of which was allocated to material costs. According to maintenance supervisor Joe Sato of Canada Cement Lafarge’s Exshaw, Alberta, facility, abrasive limestone and shale clinker up to ½-in. diameter were wearing holes through the pre-cleaning cyclone’s surface, and were causing leaks.
