The Art Of Wear
Wear-Resistant Cast Steel and Cast Alloys
There is a distinction among the elements of the wear process, i.e. pressure, impact, friction, erosion, abrasion and grinding.
It is difficult to define a clear “instance of wear” as the different types of wear overlap. As a result it is almost impossible to present a guaranteed formula for most wear-resistant materials. Every material being crushed displays a specific “wear intensity” applicable to specific wear conditions. Depending on the material being crushed and the mode of operation, i.e. machine type, the durability of the material can vary considerably.
Therefore, it is important to note that the more detailed knowledge that is available of the operating conditions under which wear-resistant casting has to work, the easier it is to select a suitable material with a degree of certainty. For example, if the crushing process involves mainly impact, the material must have adequate toughness in order to prevent fracturing. If friction is the main wear element with little or no impact, then the material should be very hard even if its toughness is lower. In short, the material must be matched carefully to the stresses involved in the operation.
Caldas Engineering is happy to put its experience to work in verifying your casting material with a view to its suitability and cost implications.
