The cost of wear 

Due to the presence of abrasion and corrosion, wear can never be fully eliminated. The results are damaged mill components, unscheduled shut downs, less precision and significantly lower product quality. The goal is to have targeted wear parts that can be replaced easily. That generally protects the integrity of the mill but every exchange of wear parts causes shut downs, production losses and ultimately high costs.

Wear parts with bearing properties by CORTS

In comparison to regular wear parts made out of standard carbon steel, hardened tool steel, or bronze, the exclusive CORC-g compound steel wear liners along with over 90 years of experience guarantee exceptionally less wear for longer lifetimes and protect the expensive references surfaces of the plant. That is the reason why a CORTS compound steel liner or rail is not a wear part in the traditional sense but rather, a precision flat bearing.

The initial cost of our gliding and sealing parts for sinter or pelletizing plants, and our precision flat bearings for rolling mills, are slightly higher then standard parts because of the complex manufacturing techniques and durability of the material. However, once a CORTS part is in use, reduced wear, maintenance cost, and eliminated shut downs generate long term cost savings.

A decision that definitely paid off: With precision wear and bearing parts made by CORTS out of CORC-g compound steel you can minimise wear and increase the economic efficiency of your plant. (»)
