RECLAIMER WEAR: For improved overall system reliability, Empire provides various wear resistant options for increasing the life of its air blast equipment. The ABRASIVE RECLAIMER is one of the most directly affected components. It demands very aggressive wear considerations.
The reclaimer is unique because it is in the direct flow of abrasive 100 % of its duty cycle. Plus, it performs an extremely critical function–separation of dust from the usable abrasive. The cyclone has been in existence for many years and they all essentially have the same problem – high potential wear in one area. Due to an abrupt change of direction at the end of the inlet opening, a highly concentrated wear area is created.
