Cement

We can help optimize plant productivity by providing high-quality maintenance and repair welding consumables, valuable consulting and continuous support.

Industry and megatrends

Parts in the cement industry are subject to high wear caused by impact, abrasion or heat.  In mills, the wear rate is influenced by base materials, the material used for wear components, mill operation and mill design. Wear leads to losses in the efficiency and quality of the base materials, increased energy consumption, vibrations and the risk of damage to mill integrity. It also leads to increases in maintenance costs.

Hardfacing allows for the maintenance of the original components’ profile to guarantee optimum production conditions. This measure must be taken before an unacceptable increase in energy consumption or decrease in grinding efficiency occurs. Hardfacing may be performed on-site or in a workshop, may be fully automated and can be repeated several times or performed on new components in order to reduce wear.

Hardfacing also increases component wear resistance by providing an austenitic matrix containing carbides in the component surface that is highly resistant to wear. The martensitic matrix underneath the surface is characterized by lower wear resistance. 

Applications

  • Vertical mills
  • Rotary kilns and presses
  • Crushers
  • Classifiers
  • Cones
  • Hammers
  • Wear plates

Products

We provide iron-based, copper-based, cobalt-based and nickel-based hardfacing products allowing preventive or restorative overlay welding in a large range of industries and in processes involving heavy wear load.

Service

We provide additional value by offering the following:

  • A network of service partners able to provide superior service in on-site or off-site hardfacing
  • Expertise in overlay welding and hardfacing techniques and applications
  • Training of welders, supervisors and engineers

Certifications

We manufacture welding consumables that comply with quality programs such as ISO 9001 (2008) and ASME QSC580.

Application Solutions Cement

Cement Rolls can come in a variety of grades, depending upon the manufacturing material. The most common is NiHard, which is a very hard and brittle material.
