Robust Ceramic Lining Solutions for Severe Industrial Conditions

Ceramic Lining can easily be formed and fitted into industrial machinery to minimize damage from impact and abrasion, prolonging its lifespan while cutting maintenance costs. Ceramic liners provide superior thermal resistance and prevent harmful chemicals from directly touching metal components in equipment, decreasing leaks and corrosion risks.


Hydrocyclones, known for their ability to distinguish liquid from solid materials, are used in mineral processing to regulate particle sizes leaving crushing circuits. Conical devices with decreasing diameter in their conical parts create centrifugal forces inside that force large heavy particles against walls while smaller finer particles enter through an overflow.

Operation of a cyclone depends upon both differences in specific gravity between particles and liquid medium, and their size; larger particles have greater settling resistance, meaning their classification performance depends on pulp density and particle characteristics as well as operating conditions such as feed inlet diameter, discharge spigot diameter and vortex finder design.

For optimal performance, it is crucial that both spigot discharge diameter and vortex finder diameter are selected in accordance with your application. Furthermore, it is crucial that pressure of inlet does not exceed target value as doing so would increase separation point (also called cut point), possibly leading to fines overflow or coarse material being sent underflow.

Ceramic Lining comes in an assortment of shapes, sizes and configurations to meet the exacting demands of your process. At PRI we can review your data and design a lining package using various shapes, sizes and layouts of ceramics to meet them – improving efficiency while increasing availability and safety in your system.

High-performance ceramic lining not only protects equipment against abrasion and impact, but it can also significantly lower maintenance costs. Our ceramic solutions make a safer workspace by eliminating glue-based fume control solutions which produce toxic fumes in your workspace – not to mention being safer to handle since they do not generate heat or release dangerous fumes like traditional materials do.


Solids and liquids transported through pipes can quickly wear away their interior surfaces, leading to expensive maintenance costs, downtime, and repairs. Alumina ceramic linings can help mitigate such wear-and-tear damage and extend equipment lifespans by applying directly onto the interior surface of pipes – they feature impact and sliding abrasion resistance while repelling liquids for easy cleaning, making it an excellent solution in harsh environments or where corrosive materials exist.

Ceramic Lining can be pre-engineered into intricate tiling systems or custom molded into monolithic shapes like elbows, tees and lateral wyes for precise fits and long term durability of industrial equipment. Installation plans that take into account wear levels can then be implemented.

Ceramic’s abrasion-resistant properties help decrease maintenance and repair expenses, increasing both profitability and efficiency. Furthermore, its non-toxic linings do not react with most chemicals, making it ideal for medical equipment that must come into contact with bodily fluids or harmful substances. Furthermore, ceramic provides superior thermal insulation properties, cutting energy costs while decreasing environmental pollution.

Alumina ceramic lining has an array of industrial applications, from conveyor chutes and crushers to material handling equipment and pipeline lining systems in oil & gas, mining, cement construction and metallurgy applications.

Transport chutes that experience moderate to heavy impact and sliding abrasion, such as coal mining conveyors or metal mining conveyors, benefit greatly from having an alumina ceramic lining installed; in these instances they may last 12 times longer than steel linings in these applications.

Ceramic liners also boast other benefits, including increased fire safety and insulation properties. Their thermal conductivity is low, while toxic fumes don’t escape during a fire – providing increased worker protection in hazardous industrial settings.

Oil & Gas

Oil & Gas operations face unique challenges, such as providing reliable energy while meeting stringent environmental standards. In light of all this complexity, investing in technology that increases operational efficiency while decreasing maintenance costs is vital.

Ceramic Lining offers equipment protection from damage caused by abrasive materials and harsh environments, including oil and gas equipment. Ceramic wear liners have proven particularly helpful in reducing downtime and maintenance costs associated with such equipment in recent years, and their lightweight nature means they can easily be attached to existing equipment for applications that demand greater flexibility and portability.

Ceramic coatings can protect any piece of equipment from erosion and other forms of wear. Customizable to meet aesthetic preferences or equipment features – for instance, Cerakote coatings come with various camouflage patterns for military vehicles and defense equipment. Furthermore, their resistance to heat can make them essential components in providing thermal stability during operation.

Ceramic hydrocyclone liners from our ceramic hydrocyclone are an efficient way of filtering sand out of liquid petroleum gases during fracking operations, helping prevent build-up in separators and pipelines and protecting downstream equipment. Precision machined components allow us to design an efficient system capable of filtering particles as small as five microns from liquid petroleum gas streams; we even bond metal end caps directly onto our hydrocyclone lining for easier installation!

The global ceramic wear liner market is expected to experience substantial expansion over the coming years. North America will likely lead the charge due to its robust manufacturing sector and stringent industrial safety regulations; Asia-Pacific including China is anticipated to experience growth as industrialization and infrastructure development activities take off rapidly in those regions.

Water Treatment

Ceramic Lining is commonly employed in water treatment to safeguard equipment against erosion and corrosion. By acting as a barrier between water and sand reaching vital components and erosion damage, liners can help extend equipment lifespan while simultaneously cutting maintenance costs associated with erosion damage repair expenses. Furthermore, these ceramic coatings can withstand harsh industrial environments including higher temperatures for sterilization processes allowing them to provide superior protection for equipment.

Regulations surrounding safe, clean water have become more stringent over time, leading to fines, legal action and irreparable harm to businesses’ reputations. To meet these standards and safeguard their operations, many businesses are turning to water treatment systems. To meet them efficiently and meet regulatory standards efficiently, businesses need robust systems which resist erosion corrosion and other contaminants which would extend equipment lifespan as well as increase operational efficiencies and quality.

One effective solution to this is using a water-based ceramic liner. The coating offers exceptional abrasion and impact resistance while still being flexible, and offers outstanding chemical resistance; making it suitable for aquatic environments. Furthermore, its smooth surface facilitates easy cleaning – essential in medical applications.

Ceramic membrane filtration systems use multiple membranes to filter industrial wastewater, filtering out permeate and concentrate streams that flow through. Permeate can be reused while concentrate is discharged. Ceramic membranes have the capability of withstanding harsh industrial conditions while still handling different liquids easily, making them suitable for use across industries and providing long term savings due to low energy consumption and long lifetime, leading to lower operational costs overall.
