Loader bucket dead bed gave longer service life

Informações gerais
Descrição do caso
The bucket has been lined with a dead bed of sorts made in Hardox® 500 and a protection for the front lip made in machined Hardox® 600. The material handled is sand with a 98% quartz content. The protection is welded under the front lip and creates a “sand cushion”, so direct sliding of the bucket on the sand is minimized, thus improving wear life. In the same fashion , the internal “dead bed” creates sand deposits that reduce the sliding wear. A year after the bucket is still in service and going strong, the former solution would have been repaired some 5 or 6 month ago and ready for a new patching.
