Chrome-molybdenum steel liners are very popular for our Customers these days – material is well proven at plants with SAG mills.
What are the features of the composition of chromium-molybdenum steel? Does it have advantages over the classic Hadfield steel, in what conditions is it better to use it?
We talked about improving production efficiency: we gave examples of how in the long run enterprises can suffer losses if they choose cheap parts, which not suitable for the real requirements.
We also explained how ETO increases liners lifetime, sets the pace and rhythm for the replacement of wearing parts, improves the quality of the finished product in factories and, as a result, allows enterprises to increase profits.

What exactly causes the conveyor belt wear and what damages it most of all? What are the design features and types of fabric? What affects the cost of Element belts? Those and other questions are answered in the article for “Mining Industry” magazine.
How Concentrators can cut down crushing expenses by installing higher-quality lining on equipment? Element experts described the features of using certain alloying constituents in production of components, the mechanism of extending the service life of components when changing the casting technology, and what companies should not save money on if they do not want to lose money. All above was presented with real-life examples from Element backed by numbers.
The easiest way of maintaining the equipment availability is to install more robust lining. At Element company they are produced from bimetal in Hybrid range.
