Slideways offers wear strips and wear shoes for wastewater treatment applications. The typical material is Black Reprocessed UHMW-PE.
We also have the ability to machine custom plastic sprockets out of a variety of UHMW-PE materials to go along with our plastic Drag/Pintle chain.
Benefits of UHMW-PE for Wastewater Components:
- Resits 85% sulfuric acid and concentrated sodium hydroxide
- Low coefficient of friction and weight
- Abrasion resistance 5X that of metal
- Reduces power needed in a drive system by up to 15%
