KALFLEX Pipes Installed in Diverter Valves for Pneumatic Conveying of Carbon-Based Materials
Urbana, IN- Abresist Corporation's KALFLEX Flexible Wear Protection Pipe System provides a cost-effective solution to connect structural components that move due to vibration, thermal expansion, or as a result of intended movement. The use of Abresist's KALFLEX pipes in diverter valves is an ideal application. A Midwest plant successfully installed KALFLEX pipes in diverter valves for pneumatic conveyance of carbon-based materials. In the diverter valve, the KALFLEX pipe allows the plant to choose between two outlets in a pneumatic system by mechanically shifting one end of the flexible pipe. The plant also uses Abresist's KALBOND lined parts in the valve assembly where the KALFLEX is connected.
Abresist Corporation offers a wide range of pipe materials with wear protection for a variety of abrasion problems. These problems can be drastically reduced with the installation of the appropriate abrasion resistant pipes. The KALMETALL®-C and ALRESIST® protective linings inside KALFLEX pipes add significant savings and longer service life. The KALMETALL hard cast iron segments are used in KALFLEX components to withstand impact wear and sliding abrasion protection. ALRESIST alumina oxide ceramic segments with a Moh's hardness of 9, are used for components exposed to extreme abrasive wear.
KALFLEX pipes and elbows are easily integrated into existing pipe systems with many connections available to join almost any pipe or coupling. In addition to handling problems due to vibration and thermal expansion, KALFLEX piping can be used to isolate weigh hoppers. The elbows, with flexible radius and angle positions, are very useful for replacing worn components that have undetermined radius or angle. KALFLEX elbows are available in pipe I.D. sizes from 20 to 150 mm (.79" to 5.91") and up to 2542 mm (100.08") in length.
Abresist Corporation services customers for a wide range of applications in the power, coal, mining, and food industries. The linings are marketed throughout the United States, Canada, and Mexico.
