Blasch Launches Verkapse(TM) - Polyurethane Encapsulated Ceramic Wear Parts
Aug 8 13
Blasch Precision Ceramics is now configured to not only provide the ceramic shapes but also the polymer processing allowing for complete production of urethane encapsulated ceramic shapes from one facility, lowering costs through single sourcing from the company that supplies the ceramic shapes. Leveraging Blasch’s 35 years of molding experience coupled with significant advancements in CNC pattern making, the process can deliver complete encapsulated assemblies in just a few weeks. Blasch engineers can use any of available wear materials including Oxytron Nitron, Altron and Invincer by Blasch RB. They can mold mounting features in the urethane like flanges, an often challenging design feature when implementing a ceramic solution. Applications include cyclones, pumps, pipe spools & elbows, chutes and impact pads can all benefit from this marriage of materials. For application in hydrocyclone separators and other mineral processing equipment, the critical choice of materials in the management of abrasion and wear materials can range from steel to rubber to urethane to ceramics. The superior abrasive wear resistance of certain ceramics is well known, although this desirable characteristic comes at a cost – the brittle nature of ceramics and its tendency to fracture when impacted. This type of failure can allow chunks of ceramic to cascade through downstream process equipment potentially causing significant damage. Often rubber or urethane is used to hold the ceramic in place thereby providing an integral means to absorb impact and vibration while providing some containment function in the event of fracture. In the past, this encapsulation step was typically completed by a subcontractor using inserts sourced from a ceramic manufacturer. Oxytron, Nitron, Altron and Invincer by Blasch RB are all proprietary silicon carbide based materials that can be cast into very complex shapes, displaying tight and repeatable tolerances that ensure repeated ease of installation. They are all more abrasion resistant than cast steels, rubber and urethanes alone and are only about one third the weight of their steel counterparts. All offer much higher thermal and corrosion resistance as well.
