Decanters experience heavy wear due to the abrasive particles in the media. Hyperion Materials & Technologies supplies cemented carbide (also known as solid carbide or tungsten carbide (WC)) tiles that act as a wear barrier and help extend the operating life of the screw while reducing maintenance costs.
In order to separate high density from low density particles, centrifuge systems operate at high centrifugal forces (up to 10,000 G). This challenges the mechanical material properties of the media, which is oftentimes highly corrosive. Hyperion cemented carbide wear parts withstand such demanding working conditions, helping to discharge the heavy solids via cemented carbide nozzles.

• Complex wear plates and liners
• Inner diameters below 1 mm for nozzles
• Tiles can be supplied as solid, brazed, or coated
• Materials compliant with EC1935/2004 and FDA requirements
• Long service life for wetted parts thanks to wear resistant properties
• Improved performance when working with abrasive media
Hyperion cemented carbide grades are FDA and EC1935/2004 compliant.
