WHAT IS A TEMPORARY REPAIR?
In your experience, how long is a wear plate repair, temporary?
It happens all the time. At a time when you can least afford to have your equipment break down, you are forced to promptly address worn out wear plate. When that happens, you have to react as quickly as a fireman to a 5-alarm fire. You have to fix the problem immediately.
If your patches look like this; get your wear challenges under control with help from JADCO.
Standard procedure is to grab whatever metal is on hand, stick it in and try to get everything operating as quickly as possible. The first thing you’ll hear is, “This will be back up and running soon; right?”
What I have discovered in many industrial applications, what was intended as a temporary repair; when the next shift arrives, it is seen as a permanent repair.
If it is no longer an immediate problem, it must be fixed permanently. The temporary repair has magically turned into a permanent repair, in less than 24 hours. Yet if you used an inferior steel ‘temporary’ patch, it is waiting to blow up on you at the worst possible time.
What do you use for your patch?
If you are short on time and must make a temporary repair, use a wear resistant steel that is able to wear long enough so you can schedule adequate down time to properly replace the issue.
It takes EXACTLY the same amount of time to install an under-performing wear plate, as it does to install the best performing wear plate.
When the material choices you are installing are the same size and thickness, it will take the same amount of labor to install either one.
The bottom-line answer is using the best steel wear plate available, so you don’t have to deal with it again next week or in a month.
