Reduces Material Plugging
The SUPERSLIK segmented abrasion resistant tubing bend represents an advanced design to improve conveying line flow characteristics when conveying dry bulk solids. Its special design provides a pressure relief across the entire length of the tubing bend. This results in easier conveying of many difficult and abrasive materials which may tend to compact and plug up when changing directions in the conveying line.
Two Types of Abrasion Resistant Bends
The tubing bend segments are constructed of a thick, abrasion resistant hard cast iron and are available in two metal compositions to suit abrasive or severely abrasive applications. A metal hardness of 235 Brinell for abrasive applications or 550 Brinell for severely abrasive applications is available.
Easier to Install
The SUPERSLIK segments are small, making them easier to install than the heavier and more difficult-to-maneuver one-piece tubing bends. The segments cannot be misaligned and are substantially more forgiving when connecting to adjacent conveying lines which might not be installed at perfect angles.
Fewer Parts to Stock
Only two different segments angles are required to make a 15°, 30°, 45°, 60°, 75° and 90° tubing bend. This reduces the number of different parts to stock. Also, since the segments are smaller in size than one-piece tubing bends, handling them is easier and they require less space.
