Pulp and Paper

Wear Resistant Solutions

Pulp preparation equipment takes a beating, whether the process is mechanical or chemical, and the average paper mill's 1,500-ton daily throughput subjects all production system components to severe wear. CerCo's ceramic materials increase the life and reliability of costly equipment in our country's most capital-intensive industry, and minimize expensive shutdowns.

CerCo's alumina ceramic tiles protect trough and drum linings, as well as many other areas. Ceramic materials' high-purity, fine-grain structures provide smooth, corrosion-resistant, wear-resistant surfaces. Their chemical resistance allows use in the highly acidic papermaking process without contaminating chemical solutions or losing their structural and surface integrity.

CerCo's high-purity aluminum oxide, silicon nitride, and Zirmonite® zirconia-based ceramics have been used successfully in the paper dewatering process. CerCo manufactures ceramic foil elements for forming board blades and suction box covers in paper machines. These ultra high-purity engineered ceramics maintain a smooth, corrosion-resistant, wear-resistant surface, which prevents damage to the polymer wire used in this equipment and provides long life. In addition, CerCo ceramics have low coefficients of friction and are chemically stable. This combination of material characteristics and benefits makes CerCo ceramics the best choice for this demanding application.

CerCo's wear-resistant ceramic linings add life and value to:

  • Pump Liners, Valves and Seals
  • Chutes
  • Pipes--especially entrances, exits and elbows
  • Doctor Blades
  • Drums
  • Forming Board Blades
  • Suction Box Covers
  • Troughs
  • Conveying Systems
  • Saw Blades
  • Washer Vats
  • Pulp Storage Tanks
  • Hydrocyclones
  • Bleaching Towers
  • Scrubber Components
  • Wherever sliding abrasion, erosion or corrosion is a problem...

CerCo' s ceramic tiles are available in a variety of standard and custom-engineered sizes, shapes and pre-engineered designs in plain, weldable and mechanically interlocking tiles.
