Tungsten Carbide Wear Protection for feed extrusion

Thursday, June 24, 2004

Conforma Clad has developed a new proprietary process to apply their tungsten carbide coating to the complicated configurations of screws used in single screw extrusion. This is the only high wear product available on this tough application in the world today. This process allows Conforma Clad to match the exceptional wear characteristics of our coating on both screws and barrels.

With Conforma Clad protecting vital components, like barrels and screws, extruders will operate 4 to 7 times longer between maintenance cycles. Because Conforma Clad offers drastically slower, more even wear, the quality of products will be more consistent. This allows for more high quality fish food for less money.
