Rubber lining is a widely-used application technique that protects a multitude of systems by lining corrosion and abrasion-resistant rubber material along the surface or inside of pipes and tanks amongst other equipment. This bonded lining provides a resilient, protective rubber coating that can and will withstand extremely aggressive process conditions, applications and materials.
The mining and materials handling industries are exposed to various types of contaminants and corrosive materials (acids, alkalis, salt water, sand, shot-blast media, etc.) during daily operation, and are therefore constantly looking for ways to better manage these substances without causing serious harm to the equipment that stores and transports it.
Rubber wear liners can be anything from 2mm to 100mm thick, depending on the type of application, usually being bonded to mild steel, stainless steel, cast iron or aluminium.
Why We Love Rubber
There are some notable environmental and economic benefits of using rubber. One of them is the fact that the material can be removed at the end of its service life and replaced with a brand new layer. This also makes rubber lining repair something that can be done on-site without massive amounts of effort and minimal downtime for your business operations.
Relining old systems helps mines and production plants avoid both the expense and time required to fabricate new equipment components and first having to dismantle other plant and infrastructure so that new machinery can be installed. This results in savings of raw materials and fabrication, downtime and production halts, and transport of new equipment.
In the mining sector, wear liner manufacture has many applications:
• Existing rubber-lined pipes
• Sand washing plants
• Separators and trommels
• Steel backed wear plates
• Rubber-coated conveyor belts
