Abrasion Resistant Tubing Bend
The SUPERSLIK segmented
abrasion resistant tubing bend represents an advanced design
to improve conveying line flow characteristics when conveying
dry bulk solids. Its special design provides a pressure relief
across the entire length of the tubing bend. This results in
easier conveying of many difficult and abrasive materials which
may tend to compact and plug up when changing directions in the
of Abrasion Resistant Bends
The tubing bend
segments are constructed of a thick, abrasion resistant hard
cast iron and are available in two metal compositions to suit
abrasive or severely abrasive applications. A metal hardness
of 235 Brinell for abrasive applications or 550 Brinell for severely
abrasive applications is available.
The SUPERSLIK segments
are small, making them easier to install than the heavier and
more difficult-to-maneuver one-piece tubing bends. The segments
cannot be misaligned and are substantially more forgiving when
connecting to adjacent conveying lines which might not be installed
at perfect angles.
Only two different
segments angles are required to make a 15°, 30°, 45°,
60°, 75° and 90° tubing bend. This reduces the number
of different parts to stock. Also, since the segments are smaller
in size than one-piece tubing bends, handling them is easier
and they require less space.
Even the most demanding
of conveying line configurations, such as a difficult corkscrew
tubing bend, can be achieved by simply turning and bolting the
flange segments to suit the angle desired.
