NanoSteel Company, an advanced nano-structured steel material designs company, has developed innovative and proprietary environmentally-friendly steel alloys based on nanotechnology. These steel alloys improve the value of steel to a great extent in many industrial applications.
The NanoSteel’s Super Hard Steel (SHS) alloys are nanoscale microstructures that can be used as metallic coatings in various industries such as mining, oil & gas, power generation, cement, and concrete. The SHS alloys are applied using thermal spray and weld overlay processes to industrial components, thereby enhancing the service life in environments of wear and corrosion and preventing expensive replacements/alternatives and environmentally harmful chrome plating.
Problem – Massive Sliding Abrasion Damage In Haul Truck Bed
A hard rock mine in the Southwest USA had to face sliding abrasion damage in haul truck bed. To perform a comparative study between the relative wearing of a NanoSteel overlay wear plate and a 500 Brinell wear plate, in October 2007 a NanoSteel overlay wear plate was installed in the rear section of the bed of a 240 ton haul truck used in the mine where the extent of sliding abrasion damage was the most.
Results - Minimal Wear to NanoSteel Plate
The NanoSteel Company is an advanced materials company which has created a unique and proprietary portfolio of nanotechnology based and environmentally friendly steel alloys that greatly increase the value of steel in most of today’s industrial applications.
Product success has been through the development of Super Hard Steel® (SHS) alloys which feature nanoscale microstructures. SHS alloys are for use as metallic coatings within power generation, mining, cement, concrete and oil & gas industries.
