Press Release Summary:
Used to fabricate plates, chutes, and hoppers, WELLBRAZE and WELL-CLAD suit high- and severe-wear applications. As solid sheet with manganese and nickel content, WELLBRAZE has 17-20% work hardening factor and increases in toughness with use. WELL-CLAD has impact and wearing, chromium-carbide overlay applied to low-carbon steel (.12 max) substrate that absorbs impact resulting from heavy service. Composite material can be rolled or press-brake formed without separation.
Original Press Release:
Abrasion Resistant Plates, Chutes and Hoppers
A new line of abrasion-resistant steel products is being introduced by Wellington Alloys.
WELLBRAZE and WELL-CLAD are the names of the alloy steel products developed to resist abrasion and impact in tough wear applications such as asphalt/concrete plants, coal mines, sand/gravel/rock crushing plants, power utilities, pulp mills, railroads, steel mills, foundries and refractories. The products are used in fabricating chute liners, hoppers, tumbling barrels, excavating buckets, conveyor parts, impellor fan blades, scrapers, pushers, grader and plowblades.
WELLBRAZE is a solid sheet (homogenous) with high Manganese and Nickel content. The product work-hardens (17-20% work hardening factor). The longer in service, the tougher it gets. WELLBRAZE can be welded with all low hydrogen production welding processes (E7018, E9018, E11018, E12018 and 12018 manual electrodes). It can be drilled with ordinary high speed drills. Material thicknesses up to 1" thick may be brake- formed (with proper bend allowances). Size range of material available is: Thicknness: 1/8" to 6"; Widths:48",72",96" ; Lengths: 144", 240", 288". Spec. sizes are available.
WELL-CLAD is an impact and wearing, chromium-carbide overlay applied to a very ductile, easy-to-weld, easy-to-form, low carbon steel substrate. The mild steel plate (.12 max carbon) was selected to absorb impact resulting from heavy service. The composite material (mild steel backing plate with the hardfacing overlay applied by a proprietary arc welding process) can be rolled or press-brake formed without fear of separation. WELL-CLAD was developed for severe wear applications.
Wellington Alloys is well-known as a leading nationwide supplier of alloy steels for severe duty applications in sheet and plate, "raw material only," as well as completely fabricated chute, hopper and bin formats for all tough industrial manufacturing, contractor, municipal, pit, quarry and mining applications, etc. Auxiliary product lines include wear points, edges, plow blades, shoes, discs, hammers and bolts.
