Flat Back Elbow Repair

FLAT BACK ELBOWS receive a great degree of wear as they divert the flow of chips or wood particles in a blow line.  ML406 Brushable Ceramic Coating is used for increased wear resistance and also to decrease friction that leads to clogging.

For best protection, two coats of ML406 are applied to the interior of the elbow (one pink and one blue).  When the unit is disassembled for inspection it is easy to determine wear patterns in the coating.

The “Flat Back” portion of the elbow is coated thicker than the rest, as it receives the majority of the wear.  ML406 Brushable Ceramic may also be used to coat the inside of the Chipper Housing and any Chip Fan Housings and Impellers.
