WHAT TO DO WHEN YOUR WEAR PLATE ISN’T WORKINGJADCO • Rich F.
Our most profitable customers have several traits in common, especially in documenting their test results. They also know when to drop things after testing shows that it is not delivering better results. You know what they say…
“The best way to get out of a hole is to stop digging it.”
When you have already given a product a fair trial and it isn’t working, you don’t owe it to any vendor to keep buying what doesn’t work. Persistence in using the same materials isn’t about being admirable or disciplined. Results matter. JADCO products simply outlast the competition!
Continuing to use the same wear resistant steel after you can see it just doesn’t work (see above), is simply wasting time, money, and reduces operation efficiency. You can no longer afford to ruin your labor or materials budget, when you can clearly see your previous wear solution/plan is simply is not working.
Everyday, JADCO’s team of professionals work with clients to help them figure out their abrasion and impact wear solutions, identifying what needs to be done to make each clients operation and system work efficiently.
HOW CAN WE, TOGETHER, FIX THE WEAR STEEL PROBLEM?
The first step in correcting the wear issue, like most issues, is admitting that what you are doing now, simply doesn’t work. Your original solution/plan likely looked great on paper. Not until the solution was in “active service” for a while, did it become obvious the solution did not “pan out.” Or worse, did you see that the new equipment you just installed is now, wearing out way too fast?
Before you panic, and pick up the phone to call JADCO’s 9-1-1 hotline for emergency wear plate assistance (NOTE: NOT A REAL THING), here are 5 items you should identify first, before you make the call.
5 THINGS TO IDENTIFY TO FIX YOUR ISSUE.
- Identify what steel are you using now?
- Identify how it is performing?
- Describe what you have you used in the past and identify how it performed?
- Identify how do you measure success? (Tons/Months/Etc?)
- Identify your target life expectancy?

ASK ABOUT JADCO’s QT-PLUS®
JADCO’s QT-PLUS® delivers greater performance in your wear applications than the various AR400 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.
With that said…”Why Doesn’t Every Steel Company Make Their Wear Plate Last As Long As QT-PLUS®?”
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 40+ years JADCO has focused exclusively on delivering consistent, longer equipment life for our customers.
Now you understand why we are able to deliver better results to our customers. We think differently by strictly focusing to improve your current results.
We will schedule a meeting with one of our local wear plate specialists at a time that best fits your schedule.
