Stone, Sand & Gravel REVIEW - November/December 2018 - 45

"Urethane with embedded ceramics
can be optimized to resist not only
sliding abrasion, but also impact, or
various combinations of the two," said
Roberge. "This approach can last up to
10 times longer than steel or rubber
alone, and up to 4 times longer than
urethane alone."
To resist liner degradation in hot,
humid climates and further extend
liner life, he also advises the use of an
ether urethane formulation, instead of
a typical ester formulation.
Roberge points to another benefit of
the urethane. Compared to steel liners,
the urethane significantly reduces the
noise level at the concrete plant.
"When all the rock and aggregates
falls onto metal, it can be quite loud,
particularly if it is in an enclosed building," he says. "Because the urethane
has natural resilience, it deadens the
sound quite a bit and makes conversation easier."
In simple batch plant applications,
cutting and self-installation of the
wear liners can be done. Standard sheet
sizes are 4'x8', 4'x10', 5'x8' and 5'x10',
in thicknesses from 3/16" to 1"; rolls
are also available - 4'x25' up to 5'x100'.
The material can be installed/fastened
using a weld-in or bolt in technique.
Modular panels, in urethane and
urethane with embedded tiles, are
also available in 12'x12' and 12'x18'
sizes in a variety of thicknesses. These
can be quickly welded or bolted in to
manage certain common "hot spot"
repairs, such as in screen feeders and
discharge lips.
Custom liners, however, are commonly used by the customers of bulk
material handling plant equipment,
and anywhere that standard sheets
do not fit, where size and weight are
a concern, or where a long-term wear
solution is needed.
"When custom liners are cut to an
exact size or pre-molded to fit right into
the equipment, it eliminates wasted
material and the need to cut and trim
onsite," says Roberge. "Because such
pieces are manufactured to fit precisely together, they install quickly
with minimal production downtime.
They are also easy to replace a piece
at a time as needed."

The process for customizing liners is quite simple for plant managers and the OEMs that manufacture
such equipment.
According to Roberge, the customer
typically provides a sketch, drawing, or photo of the bulk handling
equipment to be lined, along with
dimensions and notes. The wear liner
producer then finishes the drawings
and provides a quote. If the customer
approves, the liner is completed,
shipped, and is ready for installation
when received.

Whether used as standard or custom liners, urethane's extreme wear
resistance can offer plant operators,
design engineers and equipment
manufacturers extended equipment
life and trouble-free handling of bulk
aggregate and sand materials. This
improves safety, production, and the
bottom line.
