NO CHANCE FOR ABRASION.
INDUSTRY AND PLANT-SPECIFIC PROJECT MANAGEMENT FOR EVERY KIND OF WEAR PROTECTION PROBLEM
INDIVIDUAL, PROVEN WEAR PROTECTION SYSTEMS GUARANTEE LONG-TERM COST EFFICIENCY AND RELIABILITY
We live up to our motto to be a partner for every wear protection solution in our key industries by providing plant-specific project management from A to Z. In addition to a broad portfolio of highly efficient wear protection materials, this also includes an innovative digital early warning system, because no two wear protection problems are ever the same.
The services offered by the Th. Scholten GmbH are based on decades of practical field experience and ensure that our customers are always on the safe side regardless of the individual type of wear protection problem:
- Longer service lives
- Reduced downtimes
- Substantially lower maintenance and repair costs
- Cost-efficient production
ALL-ROUND WEAR MANAGEMENT: ROOT CAUSE ANALYSIS, EARLY DETECTION, ELIMINATION
The Th. Scholten GmbH & Co. KG has decades of experience in solving problems, keeping in mind that wear and wear behaviour cannot be determined with mathematical precision because complex factors and mutual dependencies affect the wear behaviour.
To compensate for the different wear loads in a given plant component, combinations of various wear protection materials have been found to be economical solutions in practical applications; thanks to this, it is possible to allow for every strength and surface property.
The choice of material is decisive for the calculation of the cost of materials. The use of more expensive materials is justified for extreme wear situations, high application temperatures, and/or extreme temperature fluctuations. For example, using aluminium oxide, zirconium oxide, and silicon oxide ceramics extends the service life from two to eight times the service lives of less expensive materials such as cast basalt or hard ceramic. The two-material principle: The wear protection material is applied to the substrate or base material that provides the mechanical and constructional strength. In general, all materials can be combined with each other.
