Why Abrasive Wear Testing?
Abrasive wear is a result of hard and often angular particles sliding or impacting against a softer surface.
Wear of equipment can be a costly problem when storing and handling abrasive bulk materials such as iron ore, roofing granules, glass, alumina, fly ash, clinker, sand, and copper concentrate. These solids can rapidly erode steel surfaces used in silos, hoppers, transfer chutes, screws or vibratory feeders.
