How Hoverdale delivered £36,000 in savings by replacing crusher rolls with Ultraclad
A roll crusher was employed to reduce raw materials to their final size. Over time the surface of the rollers broke down and the crusher was unable to maintain the required product size.
The Client’s Objectives
To return the crusher to ‘as new’ condition and resume production.
We refurbished 2 crusher rolls by machining and plating with Ultraclad 800. The Ultraclad was welded to the shell and the rolls were returned to their original diameter but with the advantage of having 6mm of chromium carbide rich overlay on the working surfaces.
Their Measures for Success
To re-commence production ASAP and to obtain a performance as good as or better than the original rolls.
The rolls were restored to ‘as new’ but with a more wear resistant working surface.
We turned the job round in three weeks which satisfied the customer.
Value to the Customer
Refurbished price 50% of new
Turnaround time three weeks against six months plus for new
Performance of Ultraclad coating four times longer life
Total financial savings £36,000
Rolls can be refurbished ad infinitum
