SSAB & steel wear resistance: MINExpo 2016 and mining productivity




MINExpo 2016 kicks off next week. The 26th of September to the 28th to be exact. You may have heard about it. We may have even featured something on it.



Ok three times.

As the day draws closer before the curtain rises in Las Vegas, major companies who will be exhibiting at the event are revealing snippets of what’s in store, but not enough to ruin the wow factor of when you get there.

Take SSAB for example. SSAB is a Nordic and US based steel company that will be showcasing its Hardox wear resistant steels. Why is that of note? Well, the challenge that SSAB is setting is for visitors to bring their worse wear challenges and put it to the test to see how SSAB’s wear expertise and WearCalc software can provide longer and more productive service for mining equipment.

Hardox wear resistant steel is designed to withstand heavy impact. Which, let’s face it, is a day to day thing in the mining industry.

Also on display will be overlay solutions and other Hardox Wearparts, such as Duroxite. Duroxite overlay is comprised of abrasion resistant materials deposited on top of mild steel or Hardox wear plate to create an extremely wear resistant compound material.

Duroxite overlay works especially well in sliding wear environments where small and hard materials are processed such as coal with high quartz content. It also plays an important role as a wear resistant material in high temperature environments.

This, Gregorie Parenty, Head of SSAB Services, makes Duroxite and Hardoz Wearparts, a “natural choice” for the mining industry.

But, don’t take our word for it.

Be sure to visit SSAB’s booth #913 at MINExpo where Ross Wylie, Head of Hardox Wearparts Americas, will be on hand to tell you all you need to know about SSAB.
