A05 also known as High-Chrome 27% or KmTBCr27

Material Type:  Erosion resistant white iron

General Description

Alloy KmTBCr27 is a wear resistant white iron that offers excellent performance under erosive conditions. The alloy can be effectively used in a wide range of slurry types. The high wear resistance of alloy KmTBCr27 is provided by the presence of hard carbides within its microstructure. Alloy KmTBCr27 is particularly suited to applications where mild corrosion resistance, as well as erosion resistance is required.

Chemical Resistance

Alloy KmTBCr27 is generally not suitable for highly corrosive duties. The alloy can be used in mild corrosive duties, within a pH range of 5 to 12, for silphuric and nitric acids, or sodium hydroxide applications.

Parts Availability

Most wet-end wear parts can be produced in alloy KmTBCr27. The most common parts are as follows: Impellers, Throatbush, Volute liners, Frame plate liner insert, Casings

Application Recommendations

KmTBCr27 can be used for pumping a wide range of mild corrosive slurries. The alloy gives very excellent wear life for a wide variety of particle sizes and hardness. Usually, KmTBCr27 is most cost effective for particles greater than 100um in size.
