Decanter centrifuges are machines that separate solids from liquids using centrifugal forces. The edges of the centrifuge flights, where the solids are gathered, see high levels of wear. Conventional ways of protecting the flights involve the use of hardfacing rods or by welding “carriers” with brazed tungsten carbide tiles.
Ferobide provides a directly weldable option, eliminating the need for a carrier which reduces the cost per component, which improves the reliability of the adhesion to the scroll.
Ferobide is also well suited for rectangular inlet and discharge ports, scrapers, and other components found on a decanter centrifuge.
