CHOCKFAST ORANGE®, EPOCAST 36® & EPOCAST F®
Survey approved epoxy based chocking compounds are a conveniently
pourable, two-component, structural epoxy “chock” that replaces blued and
scrapped hand fitted steel chocks typically associated with main population
equipment, shaft alternators and gearboxes. Correct application of the resin
chocks ensures intimate contact with machined or un-machined equipment
bedplates. Resulting in virtually 100% effective bearing area underneath
The resinous properties of Chockfast Orange®
and Epocast 36®
also make it
an ideal solution for the installation of stern tube bearings. This eliminates
traditional and costly, labour-intensive and time-consuming onsite machining
to accommodate the bearing. Typical applications include:-
ITW CELLOFLEX-M & PHILLYCLAD
Both CELLOFLEX-M & PHILLYCLAD are environmental friendly protection for
propeller shafts. These systems protect against corrosion damage to
propeller/stern-tube shafts and couplings exposed to seawater. These
systems are proven world wide in both Naval and Commercial applications
including corvettes, frigates, aircraft carriers, submarines, patrol boats, police
and coast guard boats, research vessels, ice breakers, yachts . These systems
can be applied or repaired in dry dock without the need to remove the shafts
and simply over coated with your choice of Anti Foul Coating.
allows for infinite height adjustment within the range of
travel, is self aligning meaning there is no requirement to machine the sub
frame of foundation. This allows the alignment and foundation bolt tensioning
and operation of the equipment or vessel within a day as curing time
associated with resin chocks is eliminated. RotaChock has Type Approvals
with Det Norske, Bureau Veritas, American Bureau of Shipping Lloyds
Register, Germanischer Lloyd and China Classification Society. The Marine
Industry is not the only application where RotaChock®
excels, other success
stories include Oil & Gas industry, Power generation, Compressor skids,

A KS-Jackscrew is an aid for easily levelling base plates and sole plates
during construction activities typically associated with rotating machines,
general equipment, pipe supports and steel construction found in industrial
complexes. The KS-Jackscrew can also be used for foundations of
buildings and bridges.
KS-Jackscrew are inserted between the foundation and the machine plate
or base frame. The final height can be set following installation of the
equipment or building element by adjusting the nut of the KS-Jackscrew.
Use of the KS-Jackscrew avoids the need to constantly use cranes.
The KS-Jackscrew can be inserted with the machine plate or base frame
once the construction part has been secured. Unlike multiple steel plates
and or shims, the Condisk allows for uniform contact without high spots
and associated load concentrations. The initial height can be set prior to
the base plate being installed saving time and money.

Rubber Backed Ceramic Tiles
ESI Alphatec supplies and installs KINGCERA wear resistant linings with excellent abrasion and impact resistance for
Mining and Industry applications. If you have process equipment that suffers impact, wear and abrasion then our
ceramic rubber backed tiles will assist to help reduce downtime and maintenance.
The benefits of an abrasion resistant composite liner are that the alumina is exposed to the material flow and is fully
embedded into a specially designed rubber backing. This results in a sytem that provides superior performance in high
impact /abrasion applications by absorbing impact while also offering excellent sliding abrasion resistance.
The rubber backing also assists in reducing noise levels within the plant and is engineered to resist the size and type of
impact in each individual application.
Wear resistant ceramic tile rubber backed ceramic mats are easily installed by means of either bonding or bolting
directly to steelwork
Our wear resistant liner ceramic rubber composite wear resistant linings are highly resistant to abrasion from bulk
materials such as: coal, coke, feed, fertiliser, fly ash, glass, grain, limestone, ore, potash, bottom ash, slag, silica sand
and other abrasive materials.
Standard & Custom Ceramic Tiles
Our industrial ceramic tiles are produced with the highest quality alumina ceramic made from pure aluminium oxide.We offer
only the highest wear materials available for abrasion protection.
Kingcera alumina ceramic tiles deliver superior wear resistance, excellent mechanical and anti corrosion properties.
ESI Alphatec can supply alumina tiles in a variety of custom sizing as well as standard sizes and shapes that can be installed easily
and economically in any situation.
It is recommended that Kingcera ceramic tile adhesive be used for attaching the alumina tiles where applicable.
Our Mining Cyclone Series systems offer resistance to abrasion during the gravity separation process and help protect the life
of cyclone material handling equipment. ESI Alphatec can custom design and build your industrial cyclone, wear protection
system or material handling system then apply the most approriate Kingcera tile solution to provide maximum protection to
Wear Resistant Pipe, Fittings and Bends
Proper Abrasion Protection for Hydraulic and Pneumatic Conveying Lines
To achieve both technical and economical wear protection, many factors have to be taken into account.The choice needs to be
based on the application.The best solution for long life and economical abrasion protection depends upon the proper selection
of the wear resistant pipe linings as well as a knowledge of expected cost.
A wide range of different materials with different characteristics can be chosen to protect against wear. Pipe linings made of
mineral, metallic or ceramic materials have proven to work well.
Clear Advantages of Using Wear Resistant Pipe Linings:
Long lifetime and maintenance free operation
NO operation interruption or production losses
NO contamination of the conveyed materials due to abrasion, mixture or oxidation
Physiologically harmless, suitable for food products
Smooth surface to achieve good flowability and to avoid plugs
Reduced pressure losses and lower energy cost
No spilled material to clean up
