Pipe Products

Pipe Products - Abrasion and Impact Resistant  Pipe, SLS 600 Wearpipe, Overlay Lined Pipe, Cast Lined Pipe Products

SLS600 WEARPIPE is achieved by a unique heating/quenching process that alters the steel’s microstructure through the pipe wall.

  • The structure of the inner surface becomes very hard, typically 600 BHN
  • The microstructure of the outer surface, cooling slower, remains more ductile, having a hardness of 250 BHN

In the hardening process the raw pipe, a medium carbon-low alloy steel, is heated to a fully austenitic temperature of approximately 1550º F. The inside diameter is then rapidly quenched with a treated coolant thus producing different microstructures and BHN hardness throughout the wall thickness. Induction hardening leaves a hard abrasion resistant inner surface so as to withstand flow deterioration and a ductile outer surface to accommodate handling and welding.

Ultra-Met® Chromium Carbide Overlay Pipe
Ultra-Met pipe is recommended for severe sliding abrasion applications. The result is a surface possessing an excellent combination of high resistance to erosion, severe abrasion and moderate impact strength.

  • The hardness of the structure of the inner surface is    typically 58 – 62Rc
  • Max Temperature = 1250°F (676°C)    Ultra-Met overlay can be formed into pipe sections, mitered pipe bends, and fabricated    fittings. Ultra-Met pipe has exhibited wear resistance; up to 8 times the life of mild steel.    Overlayed pipe can be used in conjunction with induction hardened pipe or Alumina    Ceramic  lined pipe within the total system to afford the additional abrasion    resistance needed in areas of extreme turbulence and wear.
