Chutes and slides act as transport elements that feed corresponding materials to conveying systems like pipelines and thus fill them with the material. This process is associated with heavy, continuous wear, the intensity of which depends on various operating parameters. These parameters include the medium itself and the temperature or temperature fluctuations, geometry, and the flow rates to which the material transported is exposed.
For such cases, the Th. Scholten GmbH & Co. KG develops tailor-made wear protection linings made of cast basalt, zirconia ceramic, or alumina ceramic as well as jointless coatings with the ceramic wear protection mortar SC-WearStop (for applications up to 1,200°C) to ensure the processes remain reliable.
