In applications with extreme abrasion and erosion, tungsten carbide-based cladding provides uniform protection that is slow to wear. In extruder components, this means more consistent product size and shape coming out of the extruder, which can result in more throughput and fewer trailings.
Extruder barrels are an important part of the plastics industry, and Kennametal specializes in protecting them. Multiple cladding grades can be used on critical sections of the barrels. This gives specific wear protection to extend component life. Kennametal also offers inspection and refurbishing services for our extruder barrels and barrel liners.
Screw elements are an essential part of barrel function. We metallurgically bond our cladding to the base material of screw flights and manufacture them to meet your specific barrel tolerances. Maintaining screw-to-barrel clearance ensures consistent extruder temperatures, performance, shear rates, and output quality.
Extreme erosion, abrasion, and temperatures are prevalent throughout coal power generation processes. Conforma Clad and UltraFlex are extremely thin and lightweight compared to the thickness of steel needed to achieve the same performance.
Use our cladding in areas where you want to extend the time between maintenance cycles from months to years.
Use Kennametal cladding solutions for wear challenges in the oil and gas industry. From drilling mud in the drill string to catalyst-entrained oil in the FCC circuit in refineries, Conforma Clad and UltraFlex can extend component life throughout the process.
Our cladding can extend component life by up to 4x in difficult applications:
Make Kennametal cladding solutions your first choice for abrasion, erosion, or corrosion resistance for complex steel substrates. Conforma Clad and UltraFlex extend component life and reduce downtime and unplanned outages.
Use our cladding in a wide range of applications, including:
