FRIGID WEATHER IS TOUGH ON MINING EQUIPMENTJADCO • Rich F.
In The Arctic, JADCO Customers Call QT-PLUS ® ‘Cold Weather Steel’ Due To Its Superior Impact And Abrasion Performance When Temperatures Are -40°C For Weeks At A Time.
Production Doesn’t Take Off For The Winter, and Neither Does JADCO.
Living in the Northern US states, we enjoy why we live, where we live; but the winters are frequently brutal. Frigid temperatures are hard on equipment. You have to let the equipment warm up before you can even think about putting it into operation. The same applies when you need to install wear plate in these conditions.
You need to preheat/warm up the wear plate before installing. And you need to use the correct welding alloys to handle both the cold temps and shock of impact. To survive in this environment, you have to rely on the right tools and equipment. Not every person, company or products qualify to work in this environment.
When you are ready to take on abrasion and impact challenges, you must use the right products to combat wear. Wearing a short sleeve shirt, you are not prepared for the cold weather. If you use cheap wear plate in the frozen tundra of the artic, you quickly discover it was NOT designed to be used in these conditions. You simply need to use the right tool for the task at hand.
Cold Weather Is Not A Problem As Long As You Prepare For It
JADCO’s QT Plus ® delivers greater performance IN YOUR WEAR APPLICATIONS than the various AR400 steel plates you have used previously. Being able to create wear-resistant steel having the same hardness through the entire thickness of the steel, demands you accurately control the alloying chemistry with precise heat treating.
This ability to tolerate cold weather is due to the substantial quantities of Nickel present in JADCO QT-PLUS ®.
JADCO QT-PLUS ® Contains Double The Nickel Content Our Competitors Use. It Is A Major Factor In Delivering Wear Steel With Consistent Hardness Throughout The Steel Thickness, Not Just On The Surface.
Doesn’t Every Steel Company Make Their Wear Plate Last As Long As JADCO QT Plus ®?
The quick answer is No; although this attention to detail required at the steel mill in Pennsylvania is available to anyone. Yet most wear plate distributors choose to reduce the proper quantities and percentages of these essential alloying elements just to get a lower price.
For over the last 42 years JADCO has focused exclusively on delivering consistent, longer equipment life for our customers. Hopefully, you now understand why JADCO delivers better results for our customers. We think differently, by focusing only on your results.
