ARE YOU SPENDING DOLLARS TO SAVE DIMES?JADCO • Rich F.
There are many ways to combat abrasion and impact wear, in addition to your wear resistant material selection. This is why it is important to involve your JADCO representative from the start of your project. So you can make the best use of your material and labor resources.
Every company today has difficulty hiring enough workers. This makes it more important than ever for you to maximize their time, because every minute counts.
The Wear Challenge:
Their Initial Solution:
Here they cut multiple strips to run the length of the chute and welded them in place to control the wear.
In this case, the amount of labor required to weld the strips in place took several hours. They also needed to cap the joining welds with hardfacing to prevent the weld joints from premature wear.
While they made the right material choice, installation required a half day of labor to get everything welded in place.
Here’s A Better Option:
By using a formed QT-Plus ® plate to match the chute profile, it would save many hours that could have been devoted to other important tasks.
JADCO QT-Plus ® is readily formable. The photo above shows QT-Plus ® formed to match the profile exactly. Our attention to detail means JADCO formed plates simply fit better than anything you have used previously.
Another option to further reduce the labor hours when attaching your wear plates.
JADCO’s QT Plus ® delivers greater performance IN YOUR WEAR APPLICATIONS than the various AR400, AR450 or AR500 steel plates you have previously used.
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.
Doesn’t Every Steel Company Make Their Wear Plate Last As Long As JADCO QT Plus ®?
The quick answer is No; although the 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.
Now you understand why JADCO delivers better results for our customers. We think differently by focusing only on your results.
