Wear & Plant survey

Outlining potential cost-savings at your plant

 

We offer in-depth plant surveys to identify the best solution to specific problems. This thorough on-site study is conducted in partnership with plant engineers to analyse all aspects of the situation and develop a problem-solving strategy.

Detailed method statements describing step-by-step the procedure for repair and wear prevention, as well as an estimate of potential cost-savings are produced. These ensure quality control and reproducibility of the process, thereby detailing 'best practice'.

The five main wear phenomena of Friction, Abrasion, Erosion, Corrosion and Impact are of major concern to industry, causing down time, loss of production, low efficiency, maintenance work and the need for replacement parts. Frequently, the cost of equipment strip down to remove a failed part is greater than the cost of the part itself. It is more cost-effective to repair the part in-situ, and repaired or coated correctly, it will also be stronger and last longer. The Castolin Eutectic approach is to utilise alternative technologies (brazing, coating, welding or wearplate) and appropriate consumables, which satisfy the mechanical property requirements and simultaneously offer an effective barrier against the harsh environment.

Friction / Adhesion

Resistance to frictional wear improves when the base and opposing body have different metallurgical structures, and the paired metals have particular properties, for example, in the manufacture of bearings. Problems caused by friction are dealt with on an individual basis with our customers, and solutions are designed to meet the specific needs identified.

Abrasion

Abrasion is the most common form of wear and the characteristic abrasion-worn surface ranges from polished to deeply grooved, or chipped. Abrasion-resistant coatings are typically smooth, having a homogeneous hard matrix loaded with small hard particles. Problems caused by abrasion are dealt with on an individual basis with our customers, and solutions are designed to meet the specific needs identified.

Erosion

Erosion occurs in liquid or gaseous media, when hard particles in the stream strike a surface at medium to high speeds. The erosion rate is influenced by particle speed, size, hardness, shape, etc. and particle impact angle. Castolin Eutectic provides effective solutions through correct identification of the erosive elements involved. Problems are dealt with on an individual basis with our customers, and solutions are designed to meet the specific needs identified.

Corrosion

Corrosion is typically a chemical attack, the rate being affected by many factors such as temperature, pressure, chemistry, presence of wear, etc. Problems caused by corrosion are dealt with on an individual basis with our customers, and solutions are designed to meet the specific needs identified.

Impact

Impact wear is a short sliding motion where two solid bodies interact at an exceptional short time interval. We have proved for over a century that preventive maintenance coating programs can extend the life of vital machine parts by as much as 500%. Only Castolin Eutectic has the "know-how" to identify key critical wear problems, plus the "show how" to overcome them, thus greatly increasing your plant efficiency and profits.
