UNDERSTANDING EXTRUDER BARREL METALLURGY

This webinar reviews the standardized test methods used for measuring abrasion and corrosion-resistance and explains how different alloy chemistries provide protection against abrasion and/or corrosion. The presentation covers 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. This webinar explains the many choices available for high performance replacement barrels to reduce the cost per wear and increase component lifetime.
