Element Cone used in the Power Generation Industry
Abrasive particulate flowing over the pictured Element Cone is carbide coated to reduce replacement time and costs. High volumes of abrasive ash and dust identify the wear pattern as erosion.
This particular higher temperature and corrosive environment are secondary wear potentials so tungsten carbide is the material suggested by ASB Industries.
Applied by the HVOF system, the coating provides high wear resistance due to particle hardness along with a corrosion resistant binder combination with the Tungsten Carbide.
