Erosion leads to loss of life of components in machinery and pipeline which handle slurry. In order to maximize life, proper selection of materials that are used is required. The Slurry Jet Erosion Tester is designed for laboratory use, to characterize erosion behavior of materials used in various applications, ranging from transportation to power generation.
Built entirely out of corrosion resistant materials, the Slurry Jet Erosion Tester is designed for years of trouble free use. Every aspect of this instrument is built with reliability and long term continued use.
Oil and Gas Pipelines
A custom designed pressurization system allows the Slurry Jet Erosion Tester to reliably accelerate particles carried in water in a precise manner. The easy control interface allows users to conveniently adjust particle velocity to match their application
A specially designed particle dispenser is used to precisely control particle flux rate. The unique setup allows for the particles to be fed just ahead of the nozzle to ensure homogenous mixing before dispensing through the nozzle.
Wear behavior of bulk materials and coatings can vary greatly depending of the angle of impact. Adjusting impact angle is made easy with clear angle markers. A corrosion resistant fastening system makes the system reliable for long term use.
A large and accessible test are makes setting up standard and custom test samples simple. The sample stage can be coupled with custom holders or be entirely replaced to accommodate unusually shaped or sized specimens.
