Sea Salt - Abrasive Materials

Abrasive materials are very hard on conveying equipment – by their very nature, these materials abrade and wear equipment components and systems far more than other substances. If you are conveying abrasive materials, the good news is that you can minimize the effects  by choosing equipment that features wear-resistant components. In addition , equipment wear and abrasion can be minimized by effective control of material loading and flow rates, including low conveying speeds.
