Wear Protection

Conforma Clad has introduced a wear protection process specially designed for components of low NOx burners. The wear protection process uses infiltration brazing to bond tungsten carbide to the base material of a component to form a hard, uniform protective cladding. The cladding is 14 times more abrasion resistant and two times more erosion resistant than nickel chromium alloy castings. Besides protecting NOx burners, the technology is suitable for other types of burners including wall-fired, corner-fired, and cyclone-fired burners.
