Cast polyurethane parts for high-impact, high-wear applications

by Mike Santora.

When a Dutch ship builder required a new slipway liner that could handle a speedboat exiting and entering its offshore patrol vessel through a rear bay, the company selected a custom polyurethane from Argonics, a producer of wear-resistant urethane products, over other materials.

The Dutch shipbuilder’s new urethane slipway liner was to replace a nylon plastic liner, which tended to damage speedboats because it was too hard, according to Lars Muller, owner of Muller-Beltex, a Netherland-based parts distributor, who was involved with the project.

“The liner had to resist impact, abrasion, seawater, and UV exposure yet allow the speedboat to slide in and out of the bay without damaging the speedboat or the patrol vessel,” said Muller.

To maximize durability and cushion the impact of the speedboat entering and exiting the offshore patrol vessel’s rear bay, Argonics engineers collaborated with the Dutch shipbuilder and Muller-Beltex to engineer a urethane slipway liner comprised of two layers of material each with a different durometer, a measure of hardness.

“The urethane’s harder top layer has more resistance against cutting and tearing, while the bottom layer is softer to better withstand the impact of the powerboats,” said Muller.

The specific urethane formulation helped create strongly bonded layers that would not separate.

“We recently beveled the slipway liner’s edges to ensure that no seawater or sand could get behind it. We also hardened the urethane at the bolt holes to better hold the screws and attachments where they fit the liner. To ease installation in the field, we added countersunk areas in the liner to match the exact positions of the part’s countersunk boreholes.”

“With urethane, you can combine strength, resilience, and lifetime durability,” added Muller. “The end user is very enthusiastic about the slipway liner.”

Cast polyurethanes, broadly referred to as urethanes, are tough, elastic materials that combine many of the performance characteristics of high-tech plastics, metals and ceramics along with the resiliency and flexibility of rubber parts.

Unlike its closest counterpart, rubber, which is prepared as sheets or loaves before being molded in a high pressure press, urethanes can be poured as a liquid mixture into less expensive, low pressure molds. Using this technique, complex mold cavities can be filled without high-pressure molds and presses.

This technique provides many advantages, not the least of which are lower tooling and production costs than both rubber and plastic molding, and lower material cost than metals and ceramics.

There are many formulations – some proprietary – that can be used to manipulate a range of variables such as hardness, resilience, spring rate, and chemical resistance.

For this reason, design engineers interested in a possible switch to polyurethane from plastics, steel, ceramic or rubber parts are often best served by seeking out the assistance and guidance of experts in urethane formulation.

$11 Billion Industrial Boilers Market Analysis & Forecasts

Research and Markets has announced the addition of the “Industrial Boilers: Technologies and Developing Markets” report to their offering.

The Global Market for Industrial Boilers is Expected to Increase from Nearly $11.0 Billion in 2016 to Nearly $14.6 Billion in 2021 at a CAGR of 5.8%

The scope of this investigation includes major industrial boiler categories installed across all scales and facets of industrial production. Industrial boilers provide heat or steam to a wide array of manufacturing processes, raw materials production, chemicals production, refining and an array of other processes on a global basis. Specific technology categories comprise all industrial boiler sales within the regions considered in this report. Technology categories for which detailed market breakdowns are provided are shown in the following table. The report focuses on industrial boilers. Boilers used for utility-scale power generation, commercial boilers and residential boilers are not included.

The data presented, which are agnostic of fuel, include traditional fossil fuels (e.g., natural gas, coal, liquid fuels, petroleum coke), as well as alternative fuels (e.g., biomass, biogas). The market analysis is based on various data sources, including the most recent government, industry and corporate data on industrial boiler sales, production, imports and exports; manufacturing and industrial productivity data used to help gauge historic and anticipated future market growth; data generated by recent and ongoing research and development (R&D) efforts aimed at identifying new and developing niches for certain classes of industrial boilers, as well as potential for associated growth; and available corporate project announcements for major industrial boiler installations.

Boiler technology advances can be characterized by incremental change, as opposed to industry-shaping leaps. Emerging industrial boiler technologies that may become commercially viable within the next five years are summarized, but they are not included in the market assessment of this report. BCC Research analyzes each major viable industrial boiler technology, determines its current market status, examines its impact on future markets and presents forecasts of growth over the next five years. Technological issues, including the latest trends, are assessed and discussed, as are the current and likely regulatory environments in support of this industry. Sales of both new and replacement or retrofit boilers are considered.
