Wear Resistant Parts for the Construction, Mining and Agricultural Environments
Does your business make use of earth moving or heavy-duty equipment and machinery? In tough outdoor environments, such as those in mining and construction, heavy-duty wear resistant parts are essential. Working effectively with tough and unpredictable terrain will require earth moving, grading and bulldozing machinery, equipment and parts / attachments that can handle the load and won’t need to be replaced or repaired too often.
Choosing the right parts for the job can result in expensive wear and tear, as well as mechanical stress. It can become costly to maintain and repair parts over the long run if you opt to invest in inferior quality parts that can’t handle the load. It is always advised to invest in top-quality products from the start. These might cost slightly more, but in the long run, you will certainly save on your operating and maintenance costs.
Heavy-duty machinery and equipment are placed under great stress and strain on a daily basis. The resulting wear and tear often requires parts to be replaced, which can be costly. What causes general wear and tear of parts?
• Exposure to chemicals.
• Hot and cold working conditions.
• Impacts with materials.
These are just a few of the causes of parts experiencing wear and tear in a heavy-duty environment. The type of damage that a part experiences will depend greatly on the task at hand, as well as whether the correct part is being used and, of course, the machinery / equipment operator’s technique.
When investing in wear resistant parts, it is important to realise that they are not invincible. Wear resistant parts can provide a solution to expensive wear and tear, but only if they are used correctly and properly maintained. During the manufacturing process of these wear resistant parts, they must be tested to ensure that they will be able to handle the harsh conditions that they are set to function in. Tests include that of the parts handling capacity at various speeds, pressures and temperatures. The part will also need to be tested for its reaction when used in particularly humid or salty environments.
One of the advantages of these parts is that single components can be replaced as they experience wear, tear or damage. Of course, it is always advised that you chat to your official parts supplier about which products form part of their wear resistant parts range. You will still need to choose the correct part for the job at hand and if you aren’t sure which ones are best suited, a chat with our professionals at Tractor & Grader Supplies is a good start.
