How to mix carborundum and silicon carbide


carborundum and silicon carbide mixer















Last week,one of our customer come to China to visit our country for dry type cement and sand mixing plant.

One kind of raw materials is Silicon carbide,as we all know, Silicon carbide (SiC), also known as carborundum, is a compound of silicon and carbon with chemical formula SiC. It occurs in nature as the extremely rare mineral moissanite.

Grains of silicon carbide can be bonded together by sintering to form very hard ceramics that are widely used in applications requiring high endurance, such as car brakes, car clutches and ceramic plates in bulletproof vests.

Since Silicon carbide (SiC) is very very hard,so equipment to mix this kind of material should be made stronger. Our engineers make designs as below:

1.We recommend that customers customized thickened wear powder mixer, mixer barrel body to thicken, a ribbon blender and make thick abrasion treatment.

2.In addition, Silicon carbide (SiC)’s liquidity as good as sand, blenders at work will be slightly larger than the corresponding resistance of the stirrer power system requirements are more stringent, order to ensure stability of the equipment, we recommend the use of more durable Hardened reducer machine.

After the mixer improved, the cost will increase a lot, but the stability and durability can get better protection, the customer gives us a reasonable proposal acceptance, and make some adjustments procurement plan, an appropriate increase in the cost of procurement.
