LET US PROVE JADCO STEEL LASTS LONGER IN YOUR SINGLE MOST CHALLENGING APPLICATIONJADCO • Rich F.
IT WILL NOT COST YOU ONE CENT MORE THAN YOU ARE ALREADY PAYING FOR LOWER QUALITY WEAR PLATE.
You are already paying higher prices for everything involved with your business these days. We can understand why you have been reluctant to invest more for the best wear resistant steel without knowing if it will pay off.
JADCO wear resistant steel lasts so long, without documenting when it was installed, it is easy to forget how long it has been working. This happened recently when a concrete block plant customer called to reorder a chute he had replaced yearly.
When asked, he thought ours lasted, “A couple of years, I think.” Checking our records, it had been in service for 7 years already, when before he had replaced it yearly. It is easy for time to fly by when you don’t have problems.
To start your initial test of JADCO material, answer these five quick questions:
- What is the specific application for the wear plate test, and the material size?
- What is the current price for what you have been using?
- How long does it currently last before it needs to be repaired or replaced?
- When will it be installed?
- How long does it need to last to confirm the wear life is worth your investment?
Here Is One Customer’s Experience With The JADCO Difference
First time customers are often amazed at the additional life JADCO QT Plus ® through hardened steel delivers compared to what they have accepted for many years. Many times, we’ve heard them they say, “We always just assumed this was how often we had to replace the wear plates.”
A Real World Example
When talking to a large aggregate producer, he said they did not have many wear plate problems. This came as a surprise to me, since two local competitors had constantly worn out AR400 steel in less than a year. Since they all work with the same type of rock, I was certain he had problems, but didn’t recognize it as a problem.
Using Harry Potter’s ‘Wear Plate Magic Wand’
I said, “Pretend for a moment we can give you Harry Potter’s Wear Plate Magic Wand with the ability to eliminate A SINGLE wear plate challenge in your equipment.”
“Think carefully before you answer… as you only get one installation. Which location is difficult to access, or takes a lot of time to disassemble the equipment, resulting in a lot of downtime.”
He closed his eyes and you could see him mentally scanning the entire plant in his mind, searching for the worst wear plate application. Suddenly his eyes snapped open, eyebrows shot up as he took a couple of quick steps and pointed out the window.
“Right there!” he said, pointing to the peak of multiple conveyors 50 feet in the air. “The Diverter Gate at the top is a pain in the butt to get to, way up in the air. We have to rent a crane to lift the steel over top of all the equipment. It is expensive and production is shut down for a full day every time it needs to get changed.”
I asked, “How long does it last between replacements?” I expected him to say every 2 to 3 years.
His answer shocked me: “About three months.”
Even though he knew the answer; the realization of how often it was actually replaced stunned him.
They were so busy trying to keep everything running; he had not considered how great of an impact this single application had on his overall production.
“If you were able to get a slightly more expensive wear plate, which would allow you to get a full production year in that installation; you would be interested?”
Their JADCO QT-Plus ® Diverter Gate has now been in service five years, and is still going strong.
Because downtime has dropped significantly on the Diverter Gate, it is no surprise they are operating at record production levels.
Their savings from not having to shut down and replace a problem application four times per year have allowed them to focus on improving their next challenging wear locations. One at a time, they are streamlining their equipment and eliminating wear related issues.
He realized his problem was how he was thinking of this wear challenge
They had accepted the fact that nothing would change the three to four months of life they were experiencing from any wear steel, before it had to be replaced. They accepted their continual struggle.
They Accepted Poor Wear Plate Performance As ‘Standard Operating Procedure’
Previously they hadn’t found anyone to ask the clarifying questions. Partnering with JADCO, together we help evaluate what is possible, instead of accept their self-imposed limitations.
JADCO wear materials have made a dramatic improvement in their process and equipment performance.
This highlights the difference between a partner and just another supplier.
