Description of the case
Description: Second Step crushing in a sugar mill
Technical data: Wear from the frictional heat on the head of the cap. A squeezing / crushing action needed for the fragmentation
Service Life and Status: Hard faced mild steel hammer held one week. New design with shaft in Hardox® 400 and cap in Hardox® 600 holds two weeks.
Further Service life increases will be achieved by a HF(Hard facing) layer on top of the Hardox® 600 cap. A butter layer of austenitic 307 is needed.
