Ultima™ 601

600BHN Abrasion Resistant, Hardened I.D. Wear Pipe

Ultima 601 is designed to extend service life where abrasive materials (i.e. glass, coke, coal, wood chips, bottom ash, rice, and stone) can cause premature wear. With its 600BHN I.D. and 300BHN O.D. hardened surfaces, Ultima 601 becomes the ideal abrasion resistant product that can handle the rigors of extreme maintenance problems. This specialty AR600 wear pipe will improve the reliability and productivity of your conveying system, as well as, outperform mild steel low carbon pipe but up to a factor of 6X times.

Wall thickness wear may be monitored by use of ultrasonic equipment to gage remaining service life without disassembling the line. When wear is detected, simply rotate the pipe section to start the service life over, without replacing the pipe. Ultima 601 is the ideal combination of economy and service performance.

Custom tees, wyes, laterals and reducers are offered to control flow of material through the system. Proper selection is dictated typically by certain variables including flow rates and permissible pressure requirements.

Long lengths available up to 40 feet (call for additional details). Excellent in service temperature up to 450°F. Call or email us for a quote.
