Quality Hardfacing

The Steelstruct Hardfacing Wear prevention System is a highly effective and cost efficient method of extending the in-service life of new and worn components. The fully automated process arc welds a uniform layer of hard alloy longitudinally to the curved internal (or external) faces of steel pipes, fittings and valves. The Hardfacing Process generally uses chromium and tungsten carbides achieving a thickness of approximately 3-4mm in a single pass and generating a hardness in excess of 60RC. The steel remains ductile.

The hardfacing process can be applied to both ferrous and non-ferrous materials.

Steelstruct Hardfacing capabilities include:

  • Small elbows and straight spools 100NB to 300 NB
  • Large elbows, spools and bends from 300NB to 1200NB
  • "T" Pieces, "Y" Fittings and other varied shapes from 100NB
