New Hardsurfacing Electrodes Designed to Increase Wear Life
Fort Loramie, OH - Select-Arc, Inc. has introduced two complex carbide hardsurfacing electrodes that are designed to extend typical wear life by 33% over standard chromium carbide alloys.
SelectWear 63 is an open arc wire produced to yield a deposit of primary chromium carbides and secondary columbium carbides in a martensitic matrix. Its weld deposit delivers high abrasion resistance with moderate impact and will stress relief crack check. SelectWear 63 maintains hardness (60-63 HRC as deposited) and wear resistance into the 1200-1400 degrees F range.
SelectWear 65 electrodes are composed of a high density of primary chromium carbides and multiple secondary carbides. Like SelectWear 63, this wire will stress relief crack check and provides even higher temperature hardness (61-65 HRC as deposited) and wear resistance - up to 1400-1500 degrees F.
Both SelectWear 63 and SelectWear 65 are designed for welding applications such as clad wear plate, slurry pipe and fan and mixer blades. SelectWear 63 also handles grinding rolls and table segments and aggregate screens while SelectWear 65 is utilized for the welding of cement furnace components, sinter plant parts and screws.
