KULPSVILLE, Pa.-Wednesday 12 September 2018 [ AETOS Wire ]
(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Greene Tweed has announced the introduction of WR® 650, the newest thermoplastic composite in its wear-resistant (WR) portfolio.
WR® 650 is reinforced with a three-dimensional carbon-fiber architecture, offering enhanced performance over the leading PFA-based material, while maximizing equipment reliability.
WR® 650 offers superior dry run capability, excellent chemical resistance, and an operating temperature up to 260°C (500°F). Its higher fiber content provides a harder material over a wide range of operating temperatures.
WR® 650 offers significant competitive advantages, including:
2.5 times higher PV limit in dry run conditions over the leading PFA-based material
Maintains production during upset conditions, particularly during dry runs, increasing MTBR (mean time between repair)
A CTE (coefficient of thermal expansion) four times lower in the axial direction than the leading PFA-based material
