Creighton Rock Drill Ltd. says, when you see wear edges and bars with buckets and heavy machinery, think Bruxite Wear Blocks. Think hard steel that works for you. Bruxite lives and dies for maximum wear time and optimal protection.
Made by the same high-strength boron steel that Olofsfors has manufactured bucket steel from for decades. All shaping of Bruxite edge steel and wear bars takes places in an unhardened state. This gives optimum hardness and strength right through the steel. Bruxite edge steel and wear bars meet high tolerance requirements regarding hardness and straightness. As well as dimensions and surface smoothness laid down by, among other things, modern robot welding. The steel’s special alloy and Olofsfors’ hardening processes give Bruxite edge steel and wear bars excellent welding properties, hardness and depth.
Bruxite Wear Blocks are harder and have greater durability than 400 Brinell steel. As well as better welding characteristics and higher crack resistance than 500 Brinell steel. Shaping the wear edge before tempering provides beveled cutting edges with maximum hardness and durability.
BRUXITE’S excellent welding features also reduce the risk of cracking during repair of wear between tooth holders. This radically extends bucket lifetime before replacement of the complete cutting edge.
