TRICON CUSTOM ENGINEERED SOLUTION AND PRODUCT KNOWLEDGE WINS!
MARKET SEGMENT: Paper Mills
CUSTOMER: Paper Mill in Southeastern United States
APPLICATION: Lime Feed Screw (green liquor) Paper Mills
ENVIRONMENT: High sliding abrasion
COMPETITIVE SOLUTION: Single material system of chromium carbide
- When feed stops, lime sets up into a concrete type material, which
is extremely hard and abrasive. The screw OD constantly rides on
the set material accumulated in the feed barrel.
- Use two layer Super C chromium carbide on the flight faces for
general wear conditions
- Two layer of tungsten carbide overlay is special matrix on flights
where wear is maximum
- Screw life extended from 8 month to over 2 years
