Arcoplate is a wear resistant fused alloy steel plate manufactured by Alloy Steel International. It is a smooth, chromium carbide rich overlay plate manufactured by a patented production process maximising abrasion resistance and reducing hang up.
Arcoplate was developed as an alternative to unpredictable wear rates and high friction characteristics, associated with both – quenched and tempered steel plate and the old technology, often used to manufacture traditional bulk weld overlay plates.
Associated costs with unscheduled maintenance or repair are obvious, but more importantly, hidden costs relating to plant and capital productivity losses need to be eliminated wherever possible.
Inappropriate wear liner packages significantly affect fixed plant and mobile equipment in a number of ways, these include: hang up of product, spillages around plant, increased energy consumption, increased friction causing premature wear.
Alloy Steel International’s engineering and design service enables Arcoplate to be supplied as a complete wear and anti hang up kit, designed to suit a specific application. Arcoplate can be supplied with stud bolts, countersunk inserts and can be pressed to shape. Arcoplate kits greatly reduce installation time and ongoing maintenance costs.
