Rubber Lining is the skilled application of unvulcanized and vulcanized rubber sheets to prepared metal surfaces. The principal benefits of rubber lining are its excellent resistance to corrosive and abrasive chemicals and materials, e.g. acids, alkalis, salt water, slurries, sand, shot blast media, crushed rock etc. In addition rubber linings provide other benefits including noise and vibration reduction, electrical and thermal insulation and product protection.
With over forty years’ experience in rubber lining Pradip Rubber has gained an unrivalled reputation in its application, which requires a high level of skill and expertise.
Additionally, our fully trained engineers are also able to inspect and survey existing rubber lined plant. Engineers can detect any defect in the rubber lining by conducting a spark test. If a defect is present, voltage applied across the lining’s surface will continue through and discharge onto the steel causing a spark. Defects as small as pin holes can be detected using this method. However, one of the great advantages of rubber lining is the option to remove it once it has reached the end of its useful life. Instead of replacing large items of plant and whole piping systems a new rubber lining can be installed on-site; making it much more cost effective and helping to minimise down time and production disruption.
