Bradken offers a customised range of abrasion and impact resistant products designed to provide maximum protection for fixed and mobile plant equipment in mining and port operations and conventional oil and gas mining markets. Our products are made using a wide variety of proprietary materials and are backed by a range of aftermarket support services including remote and laser wear monitoring and maintenance services.
Bradken strives to improve existing technologies and develop new products to provide maximum protection for fixed plant and mobile equipment against the effects of wear. Our research and development has led to Bradken providing a range of products in Abrasion Resistant (Q&T) steel, chromium carbide overlay or cast white iron and ceramic based products. This versatile range allows Bradken to recommend the best material for any application.
Bradken offers a range of Weld Overlay Plate solutions. Duaplate® is a well established chromium carbide overlay plate, well known for its high abrasion and impact resistance. Duaplate® is chromium carbide composite cladding that is fusion bonded to a backing material. The standard backing material for Duaplate® is mild steel. The backing plate acts as a ductile base, which allows Duaplate® to be formed and shaped without damage to the overlay material. The backing plate can also be used for structural support, allowing entire hoppers and chutes to be created using only Duaplate®. Duaplate® is available in four different grades to suit a range of operating conditions:
Duablock® is a composite material used in mining applications experiencing severe wear. This product consists of a white iron casting bonded to a backing plate. Duablock®’s wear resistant microstructure, along with its impact absorbing backing plate, makes it perfect for high abrasion and high impact applications.
