To characterize wear-resistant materials for handling abrasive/erosive slurries in various industrial operations, a suite of unique test rigs and test methods, including slurry jet erosion, Coriolis slurry scouring erosion, centrifugal slurry impact erosion, slurry sliding abrasion and slurry pot erosion-corrosion, have been developed. These test rigs and methods have been instrumental in facilitating the development of improved wear-resistant materials and optimizing materials selection for slurry transport in mining operations. In this paper, these wear test rigs and methods are introduced. The wear resistance of selected metallic, polymeric, ceramic and composite materials characterized by these methods is reported and discussed.
