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.
