Morgan Advanced Materials, a global specialist in the application of advanced material technologies for the industrial sector, is expanding its range of established hydrocyclone liners into new markets, as it continues to further develop this solution.
In both onshore and offshore oil production, the lining of hydrocyclones in de-sanding systems are subject to extreme levels of wear and tear as extraction companies aim to separate the oil from silt, sand and other abrasive waste materials, using hydrocyclone technology. Linings with low wear resistance erode quickly and require replacement. This results in additional cost and excessive downtime leading to a decline in productivity, hence the requirement for robust linings which offer superior resistance to abrasion.
In order to withstand harsh environments, Morgan’s liners are made using a proprietary alumina ceramic grade, specially formulated for high wear resistance, making them suitable for a host of applications which are subject to sustained contact with abrasive materials. In addition to the high quality base material, Morgan’s glaze bonding technology facilitates high strength joining of liner components which enable the use of internal flow geometries while minimising risk of joint breakage, giving a longer overall lifespan, while reducing both total cost of ownership and downtime compared to other material solutions.
Morgan’s growth in this product line is being backed by improvements to its engineering team. By investing in its process engineering and prototyping and development capability, Morgan can continue to deliver a hydrocyclone liner that is truly best in class.
By investing in our engineering capability, this greatly enhances our ability to bring to market robust and reliable components suitable for harsh environments. Over time, increased investment will enhance our materials and product development capability, allowing us to better meet the engineering challenges of global industry.
