- Abreco® Octagon buttons can be welded directly to the Shell
- The offset pattern allows for ore to be packed within for added wear protection
- Up to 2”(50mm) thick of wear protection
- Reduced downtime – no need for extended shut downs to remove mantle
- Increased safety – no need for lifting equipment to apply
- Increase lifetime – significantly increase the life of the lower shell
At one site that had penetrating damage to the lower shell, Abreco buttons were added to extend the life until the new shell arrived. 2 years later the Lower Shell was still in active service and eventually replaced, but kept as a spare for future use.
Abreco Wear System®
The Abreco Wear System is an engineered wear solution and was developed using material knowledge and application experience to create the most comprehensive fixed plant protection package in the industry.
Starting with a Wear Point Survey and/or information exchange, we will evaluate and document your equipment and application in its current state. This phase tells us where the issues are and what we can do to solve them in the most efficient and cost-effective way possible for you.
Using the information gathered in the Survey stage, we will review based on your priorities and goals. When possible, we use customer provided KPIs as the basis for decision making in the proposed solution. We are always using your objectives and needs as the focus of our processes.
Using our hands-on experience, our design team will create a customized solution for your needs. By using proven Abreco components, we can adjust details and configuration for each end user while providing a quick turnaround and ensuring a product with maximum service life.
Once the system is installed and we evaluate the performance, we can then optimize the design to achieve higher expectations for you. Optimizing the system for maximum efficiency translates into millions of dollars of productivity with minimum intervention and down-time.
We provide you with a suggested ongoing monitoring schedule and a forecasted life. Given the consistent life of the material, we create an estimated re-purchase point. At this point, liner tracking is achieved, high wearing areas are identified and the system is evaluated for optimization.
The Abreco installation can be overseen or managed by our own internal application specialists. We also work with local contractors to support the proper installation of the product. This phase is effectively the hand-off from manufactured concept to installation in the field.
solution, we can provide the components and expertise to solve any abrasive wear issue.
