SSAB Hardox introduces Hardox HiTemp

Published by
World Coal,

SSAB Hardox has added Hardox HiTemp to its wear plate product line. Hardox HiTemp offers wear protection from abrasive conditions in high-heat environments, such as coal-fired power plants.

Traditional quenched and tempered wear resistant steels experience a loss of hardness at temperatures in the 300 – 500°C range, while existing high-temperatures applications have been more costly and complicated to work with.

“Hardox HiTemp wear plate is a better answer,” said SSAB in a press release. “The high performance of Hardox HiTemp is achieved by using high-quality raw material in combination with a carefully controlled manufacturing process.”

According to SSAB, Hardox HiTemp can be cut, welded, machined and cold-formed by the same kind of workshop machinery and technology as other Hardox grades and conventional steel.

“All this adds up to making Hardox HiTemp an ideal choice for high-temperature wear applications in many areas,” the company continued. In additional to coal-fired power plants, applications include a variety of process industries, including steel, cement, recycling and asphalt.
