Why Abrasive Wear Testing?

Author:QINSUN Released in:2018-09 Click:898

Abrasive wear results when hard and often angular particles slide or impact against a softer surface. Wear of equipment can be a costly problem when storing and handling abrasive bulk materials such as iron ore, roofing granules, glass, alumina, fly ash, clinker, sand, and copper concentrate. These solids can rapidly erode steel surfaces used in silos, hoppers, transfer chutes, screws or vibratory feeders.

Abrasive Wear Tests
Several tests can be performed to evaluate abrasive wear behavior.
Sliding: evaluate abrasive wear with silos, hoppers, chutes with bulk material sliding along surface
Impact: evaluate abrasive wear with hoppers or chutes where drop height or velocity causes damage
For analyzing sliding wear, we use our patented wear tester with your abrasive bulk solids and representative process conditions. Click here for a review of abrasive wear estimation. For impact wear, we set up a physical model to accurately perform these tests while investigating the effects of major variables.

Test Results
The abrasive wear test results are presented in a thorough report which contains:
overview of wear testing apparatus and experimental method
results in graph and table formats
qualitative observations of unique test phenomena
conclusions and recommendations
One of our engineers will review the abrasive wear test results with you. We will answer questions you may have regarding the report content, as well as discuss usage of the results for your abrasive wear applications.
