Impact Resistant Steel for Aggregate Industry
From limestone to granite quarries, we offer a range of products to extend wear life. Aggregate AR Steel Products including primarily abrasion resistant liners for loader buckets, truck beds, chutes, hoppers, crushers, screens and cutting edges.
Aggregates are just rocks, but they’re quite literally the building blocks of society. Stone, sand, and gravel are used for everything from roadways and concrete mixes to drainage projects and railway ballasts. Extracting, processing, and sorting these raw materials puts heavy machinery under extreme duress, however.
Improve aggregate AR steel equipment longevity and performance with support from Ford Steel. We’re a leading provider of hard-wearing steel plate, bar, and pipe products for demanding applications.
Challenges Facing The Aggregate Industry
Aggregate processing sites are often located in remote surroundings with constantly changing variables, and work goes on around the clock. Equipment surfaces regularly come into contact with aggregates, which subject them to abrasion, erosion, wear, and fatigue.
These conditions can cause conveyors, excavators, screens, crushers, and washing equipment to perform poorly or fail entirely when they’re not built using hard-wearing steels. This can reverberate throughout the aggregate value chain.
- Increased Downtime
- Lower Throughput
- Higher Equipment Maintenance Costs
- Missed Deadlines
Boosting the efficiency and lifespan of machinery below ground and on the surface is essential for aggregate operation success. The backbone of all machinery is the steel from which it’s manufactured.
