Advantages of Rubber Lining

  • Extremely effective abrasion resistant material
  • Highly resilient and low hardness
  • Able to absorb and repulse impact
  • Resistant to corrosion and chemical attack
  • Reduces wear and maintenance costs
  • Reduces noise and vibration

Hort Enterprises has extensive experience in the design, fabrication and installation of all rubber linings.


Advantages of Ceramic Lining

  • For more severe applications where rubber may be unsuitable high-grade alumina tiles made from exceptionally pure, uniformly controlled alpha aluminium oxide engineered to be one of the best wear materials available for fine particle abrasion.
  • Offers excellent mechanical properties, superior wear resistance and desirable corrosion performance.
  • Pre-engineered and advanced processing techniques have enabled the manufacture of alumina in a variety of geometric shapes from simple to complex.
  • Combined with the appropriate attachment method, alumina can overcome temperature limitations, impact and abrasion problems in many different environments
