ArcoPlate

The world’s most wear-resistant fused alloy steel plate

Arcoplate is a wear-resistant fused alloy steel plate manufactured by Alloy Steel International. It is a smooth, chromium carbide rich overlay plate manufactured by a patented production process maximising abrasion resistance and reducing hang up. Arcoplate was developed as an alternative to unpredictable wear rates and high friction characteristics, associated with both – quenched and tempered steel plate and the old technology often used to manufacture traditional bulk weld overlay plates.

Associated costs with unscheduled maintenance or repair are obvious, but more importantly, hidden costs relating to plant and capital productivity losses need to be eliminated wherever possible. Inappropriate wear liner packages significantly affect fixed plant and mobile equipment in a number of ways, these include: hang up of product, spillages around the plant, increased energy consumption, increased friction causing premature wear.

Alloy Steel International’s engineering and design service enable Arcoplate to be supplied as complete wear and anti hang up kit, designed to suit a specific application. Arcoplate can be supplied with stud bolts, countersunk inserts and can be pressed to shape. Arcoplate kits greatly reduce installation time and ongoing maintenance costs.

Typically fixed plant equipment consists of chutes, transfers, feed bins, fan boxes, fan blades, crushers, screen plates, cyclones, and pipe spools. Fixed plant applications are designed and engineered to maximise the mineral process handling and production. Fixed plant applications face many issues in abrasion and impact wear. Hang up can also contribute to high maintenance and downtime.

Arcoplate is commonly used in fixed plant applications and available in mill finish and the polished surface finishes. In service polished Arcoplate has 39% less coefficient of friction than utility stainless steel making Arcoplate the industry leader for hang up a reduction in chutes, conveyor systems hoppers, and feed bins.

Laboratory tests and field monitoring have proven that Arcoplate outperforms Q&T plate by a factor greater than 8 times and up to double the life of the conventional welded plate. Arcoplate delivers a measurable cost per tonne benefit by the reduction of the plate, maintenance, and mechanical breakdown costs.

 

Arcoplate mobile plant applications are in high demand in mining. Arcoplate offers premium protection against abrasion, impact, and carryback material. Arcoplate liners are available in ready to fit kit form and can be formed and cut to the specific needs of the application.

Arcoplate packages reduce maintenance costs, contributing to less downtime, and increased production. Typical mobile plant Arcoplate Kits consist of Dozers, Trucks, Excavators, Shovels, Loader Buckets, Graders. Arcoplate is the most desirable product in mobile plant applications where high abrasion and/or hang up issues occur.

The Arcoplate polished plate has 39% less coefficient of friction than utility stainless steel. The standard Arcoplate anti hang up kit can save up to 30% in tipping time with less than 1% of carry back. Laboratory tests and field monitoring have proven that Arcoplate outperforms Q&T plate by a factor greater than 8 times and up to double the life of the conventional welded plate.

Arcoplate delivers a measurable cost per tonne benefit by the reduction of the plate, maintenance, and mechanical breakdown costs.

  

 

The team at Alloy Steel understands that different wear factors call for different product options. Arcoplate is offered in different grades, thicknesses, and finishes. With the almost endless combination of product options, there is an Arcoplate solution to suit your wear or hang-up needs.

ARCOPLATE THICKNESSES

Arcoplate consists of a dense, chromium-carbide rich alloy overlay that is fused onto a mild steel base plate.  Arcoplate is offered in a range of thicknesses to meet various material handling applications. The range starts with the 4/7 (4mm alloy on 7mm base plate) for applications where liner weight reduction is important. The long-wearing 31/13 (31mm alloy on 13mm base plate) completes the range and is a popular choice among operations where material wear is at its greatest. Whatever your needs, there is a thickness option to suit. Other thicknesses available on request Arcoplate Stock Sheet™: 1270 mm x 3080 mm Arcoplate Broad Sheet™: from 1900 mm x 3080 mm.
