Mitigating Serious Wear In The Cement Industry

September 18, 2012

A cement plant located in southern Florida approached Metal Tech with a common problem: major wear in the primary rock crusher caused prolonged shutdowns for maintenance accompanied with a decrease in production and an increase in cost. At the end of each day the crusher had to be locked out, and every crusher tip and and breaker block had to be re-welded with overlay. The heat of welding coupled with the intense Florida sun would regularly drive temperatures within the crusher to unbearable extremes-a safety hazard for employees. Using our exclusive TC 900 overlay and proprietary welding procedures, Metal Tech was able to extend the life of the wearable components from hours to months.
