All components in pipe systems conveying abrasive materials should ideally be equipped with wear resistant liners made of hi-tech ceramics. Balls as components of ball valves used to be made of just one material, implying a number of advantages and disadvantages. ETEC’s solution - a valve ball made of steel with a passageway protected by ALOTEC® provides maximum wear protection, with the steel body absorbing the driving power. This material combination is extremely sturdy and helps reducing costs many times over in comparison to other conventional solutions: wear, downtimes and contamination of the conveyed materials can be notably reduced.
CeramTec-ETEC, since November 2008 an affiliated company of CeramTec GmbH, is one of the most important providers worldwide of solutions for wear and corrosion protection in industrial plants, and for armour components applied for personal and vehicle protection, based on high-performance ceramics.
User and material specific engineering enables the production of a great variety of different components with a high dimensional accuracy.
New ranges of application are continuously developed for ALOTEC® products as an integral part of composite systems, together with steel and polymers as well as complete systems for different ranges of application.
CeramTec-ETEC has the necessary know-how for all production steps: technical advice, development, production and assembly, based on high-quality technological expertise from one source: CeramTec-ETEC.
