In order to further enhance the benefits of its tried-and-trusted range of Chromium Carbide (CrC) lined wear pipes, Rio-Carb has developed a highly-accurate CNC plasma pipe cutting machine that is specifically-programmed to cut elbows, 90-degree bends, T-Pieces and Y-Pieces for production of hardfaced long-life wear pipes.

Chromium Carbide (CrC) long life wear plates can significantly improve operational efficiency and reduce maintenance costs in industrial applications – but only when manufactured and handled according to strict guidelines.

The importance of using genuine CrC products

  • Monday, 29 September 2014 00:00
When manufactured and handled correctly, Chromium (CrC) can last up to eight times longer than traditional  materials used in the production of chute liners, which significantly extends the life of the product. It is, therefore, essential to make use of manufacturers that are fully equipped to manufacture genuine quality CrC.

As part of its continued plans for expansion, top liner plate expert Rio-Carb will be launching a new range of Chromium Carbide (CrC) hard-facing alloyed welding wire that is fully compatible with the company’s flagship range of CrC wear liners.

Top liner plate expert Rio-Carb recently completed a unique Chromium Carbide (CrC) linerless dust extraction ducting system at a cement manufacturing plant, which was experiencing excessive wear.

A group of young and aspiring engineers were given a behind-the-scenes tour of Rio-Carb's R9-million state-of-the-art 3 000 m2 manufacturing facility in Alrode, Johannesburg, as part of an open day hosted by the company.
