European Whertec CarbideClad™ fights Erosion

CarbideClad™ prolongs useful life of Industrial Process Equipment

The higher the temperature, the greater the problems of erosion and corrosion can become. If you are managing bubbling bed or fluidised-bed boilers, pulverised coal boilers, or off-gas hoods in steelmaking plants, you are keenly aware of the erosion and corrosion caused by their extreme heat and particulate materials.

You need vessel and hood walls that can take a beating; with a surface hard enough to withstand erosion and the tensile strength to withstand sustained, high pressure and abrasive conditions. In short, you need Whertec CarbideClad.

CarbideClad is engineered specifically for harsh boiler environments.

Even in temperatures as high as 845°C CarbideClad provides up to 10 times more erosion resistance than carbon steel in furnace zone conditions and up to 50 times more erosion resistance than carbon steel in superheater conditions.

Our pre-alloyed powder with spherical morphology allows for up to 50 percent higher deposit efficiency versus competitors.

Our pre-alloyed powder provides for a better coating versus other competitor options. Why? Our homogenous blend of nickel and chromium is manufactured for consistency which yields improved bond strength and higher resistance to erosion in the finished coating.

CarbideClad uses our High Velocity Oxy Fuel application process, so it is ideal for fast on-site application.

Our average production rates per applicator are 0.5 to 0.8 m2 per hour so your maintenance downtime is reduced.

Best of all, CarbideClad provides predictive maintenance capability.

This means you not only get a more precise application, but you can predict much more accurately when maintenance is required. And because CarbideClad is repairable, future maintenance does not mean complete vessel and hood wall resurfacing. Now you can relax when the heat is on. With CarbideClad’s high performance and precise, measurable application, unexpected problems and downtime caused by erosion can be a thing of the past.
