Greene Tweed has unveiled WR 650, the new thermoplastic composite in its wear-resistant (WR) portfolio. WR 650 is reinforced with three-dimensional carbon-fibre architecture, offering enhanced performance over the leading PFA-based material, while maximising equipment reliability. WR 650 offers superior dry run capability and excellent chemical resistance.
WR 650 offers superior dry run capability, excellent chemical resistance, and an operating temperature up to 260 degrees Celsius. Its higher fibre content provides a harder material over a wide range of operating temperatures.
WR 650 offers significant competitive advantages, including 2.5 times higher PV limit in dry run conditions over the leading PFA-based material, and a CTE (coefficient of thermal expansion) four times lower in the axial direction than the leading PFA-based material. It maintains production during upset conditions, particularly during dry runs, increasing MTBR (mean time between repair).
Many of the world’s leading refineries, chemical plants, power generation plants, pipelines, and water treatment plants choose Greene Tweed’s composites for their ability to withstand the most challenging applications in the harshest environments. Available in a broad range of stock shapes, WR650 customers are able to machine parts to their exact specifications. (SV)
