Ceramic Linings for Coal Chutes

This series of photographs show a 1200mm wide conveyor belt feeding a 500 tonne anthracite coal bunker via a 95% alumina ceramic tile lined head chute and two spiral chutes.

The ceramic lining system was boned onto the prepared steel work and over the steel patches, with Omega EP30 fully flexible epoxy resin adhesive.
