Tech/Engineering / cement manufacture
German term or phrase: Eckspiralpanzerung
Leider habe ich wenig Zusammenhang. Es gibt nur eine Überschrift: Mahlversuche auf Zementmühlen mit Eckspiralpanzerung

English translation:oh dear!
Explanation:
There is nothing on google for Eckspiralpanzerung, Spiralpanzerung, Eckspiral, Eckenspiral etc. etc.

I've done a lot of cement texts, so here is my best guess:

Panzerung is cladding (usually weld cladding) or hardfacing i.e. a surface layer of hard steel which is resistant to abrasion.

Spiral: I suspect this is the spiral screw of a screw conveyor - and they are cladded/faced. These conveyors are often used to transport the material to and from the mill.

So we've got cladded spiral or cladded screw so far.

But the Eck bit. Eck is a corner or an angle. Well, there are no corners on a spiral screw - it would defeat the purpose, the material would just catch in the corners, so perhaps it is located at a corner.

I think you will have to ask for more information from the client. Maybe my deliberations are of some help and the corner bit may ring a bell when you read your text.

Good luck, you are going to need it!

Thanks a lot. Nobody knew this term, but with your help I can "assemble" the right term. In this text, this very expression is not so important,
