Philadelphia, PA, United States, 2010/12/21 - For industrial processors utilizing homogenization equipment, Philadelphia Carbide offers tungsten carbide replacement parts for homogenizers - a cost-effective alternative to replacement parts commonly used today.
A wide range of high-performance tungsten carbide replacements parts for industrial, commercial and laboratory homogenizers is available from Philadelphia Carbide Company, suburban Philadelphia manufacturer of wear and machine parts.
Among the parts manufactured are plungers in varying diameters, valves, valve seats and single- and multi-stage valve assembles, shafts, impact rings and valve tips.
Philadelphia Carbide replacements parts are suitable for use in a wide variety of homogenization applications, including processing of foods, cosmetics, chemicals, pharmaceuticals and other industrial, commercial and laboratory materials.
“Homogenization today subjects processing equipment to tremendously demanding pressures, temperatures and flow rates,” noted Rocky DeCarlo, president of Philadelphia Carbide. “These harsh service conditions necessarily take a toll in wear, corrosion and abrasion on typical homogenization processing equipment. Tungsten carbide, which is known for its wear resistance and hardness. has emerged as a cost-effective alternative for many homogenizer replacement parts.”
In response to increasingly challenging homogenization processing conditions, Philadelphia Carbide has developed special grades of carbides, specially tailored for different service environments, to ensure optimum performance and long life for plungers, valves and other homogenizer replacement parts. The components, said DeCarlo, have been subjected to working pressures in a range of 10,000 psi (750bar) up to 70,000 psi (5000 bar). Philadelphia Carbide, he added, is capable of finishing parts to a surface finish of less than 1 Ra-- a finish that is crucial for maximizing service life.
All parts manufactured by Philadelphia Carbide (philacarbide.com) are subjected to extensive quality control measures to ensure compliance with all technical specifications---starting from certification to ensure the purity and physical properties of the raw materials, through rigid manufacturing controls, to advanced measurement capabilities of the final product.
