Elastomeric pipe bends or other internal coatings are often used in the conveying of abrasive media such as drilling mud in mining, scale in suction devices or dried hops as used in beer brewing. Pipe bends are subject to increased wear due to a combination of abrasion and erosion at changes of direction and branch pipes.
The advantage that comes along with the use of polyurethanes is that the media causing wear still crashes into the pipe wall but, because of the wall´s elasticity, it yields and goes back to its initial shape after a short time. In contrast to inelastic wall materials, this reduces wear.
