Duratech

Pratco Industries has successfully developed the hardfacing process "Duratech". The control of wear and the consequent reduced life of components remains the focus of an ongoing commitment from Pratco to research and development programmes involving both industry and educational institutes.

The Duratech process comprises the addition of controlled amounts of an extremely wear resistant particulate to a ductile weld overlay on a component. Tungsten Carbide in a mild steel weld is a typical combination.

State of the art welding machines and microprocessor - controlled welding robots, workpiece positioners and particulate feeders combine to ensure reproducibility and consistent quality of the process.

Pratco has consistently demonstrated the effectiveness of these two processes in applications including:

· Bucket Teeth, Lips, Shrouds, Adaptors
· Ripper Points, Augers, Cutting Edges
· Drill Pipe, Stabilisers, Tool Joints
· Shovel Teeth, Trenching Teeth
· Dredge Blades, Teeth
· Plough Shares, Points, Discs
· Road Profiling Teeth, Picks
· Garbage Compaction,Wood Chipping Hammers.
·A Custom Designed Package for your particular Wear Problem may be available.
