Wear and Corrosion Protection with ALOTEC® Advanced Ceramics

Advanced Ceramics for Protection Against
Wear and Corrosion

ALOTEC® advanced ceramic is a modern material that can meet the highest requirements even under difficult conditions that involve wear, corrosion and high temperatures.

Wear and Corrosion Protection

“Wear and corrosion protection with ALOTEC® advanced ceramic translates into longer service life for plants and ultimately lower costs.”

Using ALOTEC® advanced ceramics as a base CeramTec-ETEC has become one of the world’s largest and most important providers of wear and corrosion protection solutions. ALOTEC® ceramic linings from CeramTec-ETEC protect wherever highly abrasive materials are required. They are used in machines and systems in steel plants, in foundries, in the mining, processing and preparation of minerals, within the paper, pulp, chemical and pharmaceutical industries, in power plants (coal, wood and solid fuels), in cement production, and in concrete production and transportation.

Material and application-specific designs make it possible to produce a variety of components with high dimensional accuracy. What’s more, ALOTEC® products in the form of steel and polymer composites help to open up new areas of application all the time. CeramTec-ETEC develops, manufactures and assembles integrated system components and complete systems for different applications. Examples include cleaners/cyclones with ceramic/PU material combinations, which are significantly lighter than comparable products in ceramic/steel or pipes with ceramic linings. And inrun tracks for ski jumps at the Olympics in Turin or in Bischofshofen.

ALOTEC® – Properties and Advantages

  • High hardness and wear resistance
  • Defined and uniformly low erosion
  • High temperature and corrosion resistance
  • Dimensional stability
  • Low specific weight

Wear Protection Material with maximum Hardness

ALOTEC® advanced ceramic is the basis for protecting industrial plants against wear and corrosion and offers the highest degree of hardness of all anti-wear materials used today. The high homogeneity of ALOTEC® ceramic guarantees uniform, low abrasion.

“The high wear resistance and stability continues even in high-temperature applications. The maximum operating temperature is 1,400°C to 1,800°C.”

Service in Wear and Corrosion Protection

Effective anti-wear starts with design that meets the application and material requirements based on an application-specific system analysis. It takes into account all the mechanical, thermal and corrosive loads of a system.

The experts at CeramTec-ETEC use this information to develop an economical solution with material recommendations for ceramic as well as its processing and assembly. One advantage of ceramic linings is that the individual ceramic parts do not need to be adjusted on site, which is both costly and time consuming. CeramTec-ETEC can take them in their unfired state and accurately adjust them accordingly.

This CAD-based service delivers a detailed installation plan for time and cost-saving assembly, which the experts at CeramTec-ETEC also perform on request. The result is significantly lower downtime and longer maintenance and repair intervals for maximum efficiency!
