Along with Densit® chemically bonded ceramic, fused cast basalt is one of the most frequently used wear protection materials. In addition to its high level of hardness and abrasion resistance, it is characterised by excellent resistance to almost all acids and alkalis.
Fused cast basalt surfaces remain smooth and low in friction when used over time, thereby offering the benefit of low caking.
Fused cast basalt provides excellent protection against the following abrasive media:
ore - sinter - ash - slag - sand - coal - clinker
Examples of plant equipment and system components coated with fused cast basalt :
- Pneumatic and hydraulic pipeline systems
- Chain conveyor systems
- Wet chain conveyors
- Transport channels
- Feeder conveyors
