Alloy Data Sheet - Tough 25 High Chrome White Iron

Posted by admin on March 10, 2016

25% Chrome Tough Alloy

This alloy maintains the abrasion resistance of the 25% chrome alloy with increased toughness.  This alloy is used High chrome white iron feedwell distributor (witch’s hat) on steel backing.for thicker section castings exposed to a high impact environment, such as in mining and crushing and in the Alberta Oil Sands.  Castings poured with this alloy can be machined, but not drilled or tapped.  Machining would be done for fit surfaces only.  The increased amount of Mo improves the hardenability of the alloy as well, which is a benefit to thicker section castings.  For further increased toughness use an ASTM A532 Class II Type B.

Applications
This alloy meets the requirements for many applications such as:

  • Mining crusher liners
  • Chute liners
  • Dredge pumping
  • Impellers
  • Oil Sands applications
  • Mining crusher parts

Corrosion Resistance
This alloy has good corrosion resistance.  For a more extreme corrosion environment and abrasive wear mechanism consider using an alloy with 28-30% Cr.

Processing

  • This alloy is supplied in the hardened condition.
  • It can be machined and faced for fit purposes, but it can’t be drilled and tapped.
  • Inserts can be cast in if drilling and tapping is necessary.
