Filling silos with abrasive minerals was causing major problems at a leading glass manufacturer. Following an upgrade programme, blowing pressure increased to 2 Bar resulting in high levels of wear and regular blockage in ‘deadbox’ style 90° bends. A new solution was needed.
AlphaPipe 90° abrasion resistant armoured bend
AlphaChrome low profile hard weld coating to internal surfaces
Deadbox bends – trapped material causing blockages
AlphaPipe – unrestricted material flow, transfer times reduced
