Kingfisher introduce wear-resistant overlay plate
Latest K-CLAD 800 range offers optimum wear resistance, longer service life and cost savings
KINGFISHER Industrial, specialist manufacturers of wear-resistant process plant and equipment, will be introducing their latest K-CLAD 800 series wear-resistant overlay range at this year’s RWM exhibition. The overlay plate consists of plain steel which is fusion bonded with chromium iron, carbon alloy and chromium carbide to deliver severe abrasion resistance.
Industry specialists are well aware of the issues faced by manufacturers when trying to resolve constant equipment failures, thereby adding protection systems to help maximize the service life of key equipment is increasingly in demand, to reduce operational costs in the long run.
Kingfisher’s new overlay system incorporates state-of-the-art electronic technology that permits production of an overlay with total carbide saturation (TCS), which gives maximum wear resistance, extended whole-life use and cost savings.
The overlay range is available in three different grades, each of which is said to provide 40 to 50 times better wear resistance than mild steel. Typical applications for K-CLAD include the protection of transfer chutes, vibratory feeders, screens, waste grabs, hoppers and fan blades.
Graham Bailey, operations director for Kingfisher, commented: ‘It is a quality product, offering high cost savings. Our products are designed to suit different applications as each grade has its own special characteristics to eliminate issues such as gouging, erosion, temperature extremes and material build-up’.
