: : I'm working with wear prevention in automated waste collection systems (more info on www.envac.net). We have pinpointed a number of materials that wear our pipes. We have however neglected wear from organic waste, so my question is:

: : What hardness does chickenbone have? in Brinell, Vickers or on the Mohs' scale...

: Hi Tord

: I think if you were to hardness test chicken bone, it would be relatively soft compared to say metals. But that is not to say it will not abrade or erode your pipes.

: Regards Gordon

This is what I'm thinking about... but it's difficult to analyze this, and it would be interesting to find some sort of measure af the abrasion on say mild steel from bones...
