Long-lasting, flexible and sustainable wear solution for VRMs.
Optimal wear protection for highly abrasive grinding conditions
VRM components are subject to severe wear. This is particularly true when grinding materials with high silica content and slags, such as are found in cement mills. This wear has a direct impact on a plant’s bottom line: a worn VRM roller reduces grinding efficiency, increasing the energy demand and costs of milling. Excessive wear of the mill lining may also result in increased vibration, exacerbating the problem and risking damage to the equipment. With our deep knowledge and experience of mill operations, we understand the causes of wear, how it impacts operations – and how to better protect against it. Not just on our own mills, but on any VRM in your production line. And we put that knowledge and experience to good use, alongside our partners at Castolin Eutectic, the best in hard facing services, to offer a long-lasting and flexible solution to your wear protection needs. Castolin Eutectic's leading knowhow and experience, combined with our knowledge of the material composition of our wear parts, enables us to give you the best recommendation of welding deposit materials, as well as the highest quality onsite service by a professional team of expert fitters. In addition, our wear segments (including the welded overlay) are recyclable at end of life, making them a more sustainable wear protection solution than non-recyclable ceramic-based solutions. Our hard facing services can also be packaged with other VRM maintenance services. These include our re-start service, which ensures optimal mill set-up after refurbishment, and our grinding circuit walkthrough, which provides a general evaluation of the grinding circuit, as well as in-depth inspection and analysis of critical elements.
