CERAM-R — is a specially developed ceramic for coke ramps. The material has special sliding properties, thermal and acid resistance and is thus an ideal solution in the extreme coke ramps environment.
Comparisons were made of 6 different materials after 6 months of testing at the Coke Plant in Ukraine.
Comparisons show unsatisfactory sliding properties of „D“ material, coke does not come off well even with a large ramp inclination angle, stronger washout, cracks are observed.
The CERAM-R material is distinguished by increased hardness and strength, this material is more resistant to chemical stress in the aggressive environment of the coke ramp as well.
These material properties guarantee a particularly long service life, which has been proven for decades at leading European enterprises.
Materials A, B, C, E did not withstand the load (severe damage).
Initial situation at the coke ramp (summer 2016)
6 months after the installation of CERAM-R (May 2017)
Further improvements were developed and implemented after the trial period in 2018 to improve durability.
By the end of 2020 this material has been in operation for more than 4 years without replacement.
This confirms the high quality of the material to meet the stated requirements when operating on coke ramps.
CERAM-R installed on SBS – FIX E (January 2019)
We do not recommend placing tiles in an arbitrary manner on a sandy substrate.
CERAM-R has been successfully used for many years in the following coke plants:
