Power generation without material losses
The energy industry is a very diverse sector when it comes to finding the right kind of wear protection to strengthen abrasion resistance. Our experts work with power plant and coal production equipment suppliers around the globe to minimize wear and find economical solutions to increase the useful life of the power plant.
Thermal power plants
Much of the equipment used by thermal power plants is subject to a great deal of wear during the fuel processing and transportation processes. Whether the power plant is using bituminous coal, lignite, biomass or recycling waste, sludge or other residues, Kalenborn Abresist has the right wear protection solution for an improved abrasion resistance of machinery and feeding systems. The same is true of the components behind the chambers. Wet de-ashers, drag link conveyors and pneumatic or hydraulic systems for removing the flue ash – Kalenborn Abresist has the materials and know-how to ensure longer operating lives and guarantee compliance with environmental specifications.
Hydro-electric power plants
Sediment in water as a result of glacial run-off or storms cause abrasion and put a great deal of pressure on turbines. It is therefore important to use abrasion resistant equipment to remove gravel and sand. Flushing or diverting channels that are used to prevent the silting up of reservoirs also have to cope with huge quantities of debris in a short period of time. Kalenborn Abresist’s wear protection materials and systems protect concrete structures and hydraulic steel structures in power plants from otherwise unavoidable abrasion and ensure that particularly exposed areas are protected in a reliable and lasting fashion.
