Hardfacing

A cost-effective method to create an improved wear resistant surface on metal components to extend service life, improve operational efficiencies and reduce downtime. Hardfacing can be applied to new or existing components with the additional flexibility to apply in-situ before placing an asset into service.

Applications
  • Pulveriser mill components
  • Crusher and sizer components
  • Dredging
  • Ground engagement tools
  • Heavy mobile equipment
  • Wear plates
  • Chutes
Advanced coatings

Specialised surface coatings technologies to mitigate the impact caused by erosion, corrosion, wear abrasion and thermal fatigue.

Applications
  • Agitation components (industrial stirring and autoclaves)
  • Boiler components; fan blades, nozzles and tubes
  • Pump components; impellers, cases, shafts and bearing journals
  • Valve components; seats, plugs and discs
  • Gearbox bearing journals and shafts
Application Techniques
  • Laser cladding
  • High velocity oxygen fuel (HVOF)
  • High velocity air fuel (HVAF)
  • Plasma transferred arc (PTA)
  • Plasma spraying

POPULAR QUESTIONS

For a prompt and accurate proposal, we would ideally like to have the following details:

  • Drawings
  • Raw material specification
  • Quantity required
  • Any surface preparation / painting  specifications
  • When the goods are required on site
  • Annual usage (allows us to consider allocation of set-up costs if applicable)

Absolutely. Although we may already have proven coatings, it can be advantageous to to refine the coating composition for your unique application. Blade assemblies are a good example of where multiple coatings can be trialled in a controlled environment.

Depending on substrate raw material, quantity and manufacturing complexity, the addition of a surface engineering operation may add 2-4 weeks to the total project.
