Previously, a competitor has provided wear liners for a Flash Float Floor manufactured with 92% Alumina ceramic tiles. These wear liners had a service life of approximately 26 weeks, or two shut cycles.
Bradken was familiar with the customers operational plant and processing environment and was therefore able to recommend and supply new liners which suited the harsh environment, they utilised their locally manufactured Vulcabrix ZTA (Zirconia Toughened Alumina) ceramic tiles.
These preliminary results estimate the service life of the Vulcabrix ZTA ceramic liners to be 100 weeks, or an increase of 285% in service life compared to the 92% Alumina ceramic liners, enough to last at least 7 shut cycles.

Mill liner is an equipment that protects the mill shell from wear & tear and transfers the energy to grinding charge. Primarily, a mill machine undergoes via intense wear & tear due to continuous breakdown of materials. And to protect the mills, mill liners are utilized to increase the efficiency. Within rubber and steel mill liners, rubber mill liners are easier and quicker to install owing to, its properties such as, lightweight, excellent wear resistance and sealing Properties.
The emergence of mill liners is attributed to its advantages that compliments its utilization across cement, mining and other related industries. The advantages being, optimized milling circuit, increased productivity, additional uptime & improved throughput and safer maitainence. In addition to it, the rapid growth of cement and mining industries have been creating ample growth opportunities for mill liner market across the globe. Mining industry in particular, is witnessing increasing demand for mills across the grinding operations. It is, subsequently increasing the demand for mill liners.
The market participant such as, Trelleborg Group, Multotec, Magotteaux, FLSmidth, ME ELECMETAL, Metso Outotec and others are expanding their business portfolio with planned developments including, enhanced product offerings, material innovations, global expansion and strategic partnerships & collaborations. These developments are aiming to endure the mill life. For instance, Metso Outotec is offering the tailor-made mill liners with reduced noise level and safe handling advantages even in intense industrial working. Additionally, FLSmidth is serving mining industry by supplying efficient milling equipment solutions.
The COVID-19 pandemic has created the miseries across the mining, metal, manufacturing, construction and industry verticals. Additionally, the steel industry has also seen major downfall with greater impact of COVID-19 pandemic. As per the U.S. Steel Industry, the U.S. steel production fell by 12.7% year over year at the ending of March 2020. This in turn, has adversly affected the demand for mill liners across the U.S., U.K., Germany, china, Italy, India and other major countries.
