Ultrawear™ Ceramic Wear Surfaces
Alumina Ultrawear AL Ceramic Wear Surfaces
Advantages: Low cost; good wear and corrosion resistance; moderate machine drag.
Applications: Fourdrinier, except on flatboxes when calcium carbonate is used.
Silicon Nitride Ultrawear SN Ceramic Wear Surfaces
Advantages: High thermal shock resistance; low fabric wear, low drive load; best all-around combination of wear, chip, and corrosion resistance.
Applications: High stress applications, like suction boxes and felt strips; all applications where calcium carbonate is used.
Silicon Carbide Ultrawear SC Ceramic Wear Surfaces
Advantages: The hardest, most wear resistant ceramic; moderately high thermal shock resistance.
Applications: All applications where severe ceramic wear is present.

The answer varies depending on the process, chemicals being used, and the environment. For example, fillers may be in the system such as contaminants used in recycling. These contaminants can cause issues with the process which influences the life of the wear surface. We take a holistic approach to understanding your process to give you a better approximation of the products life.
