Kimura-Cast Lined Pipe (K-CLP)

Abrasion-resistant pipes / Kimura Foundry’s steel pipes with high-chrome cast iron inserts K-CLP Kimura-Cast Lined Pipe

Originally developed pipes with abrasion resistance of high-chrome cast iron and shock resistance of steel pipes

5 features of K-CLP

1. Abrasion-resistant pipes with excellency for wet-type and dry-type transportation

We have extended the life of pipes with superior abrasion resistance applicable for pipes used to transport granulated blast furnace slag, fly ash, clinker ash, and more.

2. Lining by Casting

Produced by lining the insides of steel pipes with high-chrome cast iron, K-CLP overcomes the disadvantages of jointed basalt pipes and ceramic pipes that are prone to damage in the parts.

Basalt pipes
Basalt pipes have a disadvantage in that the basalt affixed to the inside of steel pipes gets easily damaged partially

K-CLP (high-chrome cast-iron pipes)
High-chrome casting with no joints covers the inner surface of the pipe the inside surface is fully sheathed in high chrome.

3. Maintainability

K-CLP offers superior maintainability, such that the thickness of high-chrome cast-iron parts can be measured from outer maintenance holes by UT even while the equipment is in use.

4. Weldability

While high-chrome cast-iron pipes cannot be welded, steel pipes can be subject to welding repairs.

5. Pipe connectivity

Since working surfaces are made of high- chrome cast iron and Joined flanges made of steel, K-CLP is characterized by resistance to cracking when pipes are bonded to one another using bolts.
