Safety Benefits of Ceramic Linings

Running a mineral processing plant can be a challenging and dangerous business, and one of the topmost priorities for plant managers is to ensure the safety of their employees.

Mineral processing plants can be hazardous places with various potential safety risks. Some of the most common risks include:

  • Accidental release of toxic or flammable gases
  • Explosions
  • Injury from faulty machinery
  • Chemical burns

Over the years, many plants have installed ceramic linings in their processing equipment to protect workers from these hazards. Ceramic linings have several advantages over other lining materials, such as rubber.

Ceramic linings are made from a hard, brittle material that can withstand high temperatures and corrosive chemicals. They are used to line the inside of tanks, pipes, and other processing equipment. This helps protect employees from injury and prevents damage to the equipment.

Protection from Chemicals

The use of ceramic linings can help to protect workers and the environment from potentially hazardous chemicals. Ceramic linings can resist most acids and bases, as well as a wide range of organic solvents. This means that many processing plants can use them to line equipment that handles these chemicals.

Prevent Corrosion and Abrasion

Ceramic coatings are also resistant to corrosion and abrasion, limiting injuries from sharp and rusty surfaces.

Reduce Wear and Tear

In addition to their safety benefits, ceramic coatings can also offer cost savings and efficiency improvements by reducing wear and tear and extending the life of machinery.

Ceramic Linings

Ceramic linings are used to protect the inside of pipes and vessels from corrosion and abrasion. Not only do they help keep the plant running smoothly, but they also extend the life of the equipment. In addition, advanced ceramic linings offer superior resistance to wear and tear, even in the most challenging environments.

When the plant is down, employees require a high level of effort to fix or replace any broken equipment. This work can be complicated and increase safety hazards as accidents are more likely in these situations due to them being complicated repairs with the potential for additional problems.

CTI-X7® Industrial Ceramic Lining Specification

With our years of experience in the industry, we have learned that ceramic liners can make a significant difference in extending equipment life. Our tests show an average 20:1 advantage for material processing systems such as piping, cyclones, and chutes over traditional metal ones with similar applications.

The CTI-X7® Ceramic Standard has marked improvements across the North American Continent in replacing rubber, AR, chromium carbide liners in piping, and chute distribution systems.

In emergency repairs due to a blowout, you can do a temporary weld on carbon with ceramic or stainless with ceramic, reducing environmental spills and shutdowns.
