Understanding Extruder Barrel Metallurgy
September 7 @ 8:00 am - 9:00 am
This webinar will review the standardized test methods used for measuring abrasion and corrosion-resistance and explain how different alloy chemistries provide protection against abrasion and/or corrosion. The presentation will cover surface treatment and heat treatment options, through-hardened steels (wrought, cast and PM) and manufacturing methods for extruder barrels (solid, lined, HIP, cladding) along with the advantages and disadvantages of each. The presentation will explain the many choices available for high performance replacement barrels to reduce the cost per wear and increase component lifetime.
