Iberplate & Ibertube
Iberplate and Ibertube are composite wear material consisting of a steel base plate/tube and a wear resistant coating applied by arc welding, designed to resist with exceptional performance the most severe abrasive and erosive wear conditions.
Iberplate is a composite wear plate consisting of a steel base plate and a wear resistant coating applied by arc welding, designed to resist with exceptional performance the most severe abrasive and erosive wear conditions.
Ibertube is a composite wear tube consisting of a steel base tube and a wear resistant coating applied internally and/or externally by arc welding, designed to resist with exceptional performance the most severe abrasive and erosive conditions.
By extension of service life cycle (Preventive Maintenance)
By reducing production dowtime and extension of maintenance intervals.
By conservation of resources and use of exchangeable liners.
Composite wear plates and tubes are the best solutions for applications with high wear conditions. Depending on the type of cladding, the wear resistance/lifetime reach in some cases figures 12 times higher than carbon steel and 8 times than abrasion resistance steel.
Coating applied by automated open arc welding on the base material. Same Technology used on Vertical Mills.
High content of very hard carbides. Selection depending on service temperature and wear cases: Abrasion, erosion, impact, corrosion, metal friction and others.
Hardness: 58-68 HRC
Service Temperature: Up to 800ºC
Coating with stringer beads. Low dilution between the weld deposit and the base material. High density of very hard carbides well distributed in the whole thickness of the coating.
Micro-cracks resulting from stress relieve during the welding process do not affect the wear resistance.
Absence of open cracks and of weak areas between the welded beads for a higher wear resistance. Optimized beads overlap results in a flat final surface. Perfect bonding between coating and base material, allows mechanical processing of bending, shaping and rolling.
We can produce IBERPLATE and IBERTUBE products in a wide range of sizes/thicknesses and different base and coating materials, enabling to respond special wear requests in different applications.
Some good examples of our R&D researches are: Iberplate and Ibertube DUO, with coating on both sides.
Light wear plates (3+2 and 3+3).
Wear plates for impact conditions.
Wear plates for corrosive conditions.
Featuring the latest technology in CNC-controlled Plasma and Waterjet cutting equipment, based on drawings or samples, we can fabricate the most detailed and complex geometries with very high precision in any type of wear plate.
