ASHCOLITE PIPE is the standard offering for all hydraulic and pneumatic ash handling systems. This pipe made of chrome-iron alloy is specially designed to withstand the abrasive wear characteristics of many types of ash. The pipe is centrifugally cast to provide uniform wall thickness and mass desity – eliminating blow holes, slag and sand inclusions. For easy installation and replacement or rotation of pipe, our pipe has plain ends that connect with sleeve couplings.
ASHCOLITE® REPLACEABLE WEAR-BACK FITTINGS
ASHCOLITE® Replaceable Wear-Back (RWB) fittings are designed for vacuum systems conveying highly erosive ash. Used for pipe bends and junctions, the fittings are reversible to maximize the fitting's wear life. Standard fitting assembly includes a body with 400-500 Brinell hardness and a back with 550 Brinell (minimum) hardness to handle extreme ash conditions. Wear-back fittings have plain-ends and can be easily removed for pipe line inspection.
ASHCORE® CERAMIC-LINED PIPE & FITTINGS
ASHcore® ceramic-lined pipe and fittings resist fine particle abrasion in the entire conveying system. Each ASHcore® product features wear-resistant tiled ceramic liners that are custom-fit to an outer steel shell for optimum performance and long wear life.
ASHcore® pipe and fittings are well suited for pneumatic fly ash applications. Because dramatic wear improvements can be realized, they're recommended for high-abrasion areas such as elbows, tees, laterals, inlet regions and transfer points.
COUPLINGS, JOINTS, ADAPTORS AND BLIND FLANGES
Couplings, Expansion Joints, Adaptors, and Blind Flanges used to join ASHCOLITE® and carbon steel pipe and fittings in the transport system.
- Single and double couplings connect plain-end ASHCOLITE® or ASHCOLITE® B pipe and fittings
- Reducing couplings connect ASHCOLITE® with carbon steel pipe
- Bellows expansion joints accommodate thermal expansion in dry ash-handling systems
- Adaptors connect ASHCOLITE® pipe to flange assemblies of all types (for example, standard pipe flanges, fittings, and machinery)
- Blind flanges close open-ended pipe runs and are available with threaded ports for insertion of check valves or testing equipment
