Transfer points are key areas within processing facilities, including Asphalt Plants, that endure high impact and abrasion challenges. In Asphalt Plants, the material comes out of the dryer at high temperatures, ready to move onto the drag slat conveyors or elevators. To help, consider giving your plant the "boot," boot plate that is. Boot plates, made from chromium carbide overlay plate, are strong additions to the operating process.

With the proper chromium carbide overlay plate for your boot plates, (see 4 Tips for Purchasing Chromium Carbide Overlay Plate), you'll see an decrease in downtime and labor costs for your change-outs. Boot plates made from CCO can take the high temperatures from the dryer, while performing longer against ...

Consider this: As a site supervisor your day started onsite at 7:00AM. You’ve dealt with paperwork, supply issues, and now some of the equipment is down. Your maintenance manager tells you the material liners you are dealing with have worn through to the main structure of a critical piece of production equipment. You are thinking a total replacement is needed; thoughts of costs, downtime and labor are running through your head.

However, your maintenance manager explains you simply need to order better liners for the equipment, but you’d better make sure it’s made of chromium carbide overlay plate. You’ve heard of the material, but never dealt with it yourself. You know that it’s basically a mild steel plate ...

Biomass fuels have been watched for many years now, leading to questions of environmentally friendly options, sustainability and cost-effectiveness. From these conversations, wood pellets have emerged as the fastest growing biomass option over the past 10 years. One of the key reasons is the European Commission’s 2020 climate and energy package, says the US Energy Information Administration. Their goal is to decrease overall greenhouse gas emissions, ensure energy from renewables and improve energy efficiency; each of these categories by 20%.

These objectives have increased production in the United States, to the point of making the United States the “single largest wood pellet producer in the world” according to Forbes...

JADCO Manufacturing is known globally for our proven protection for impact and abrasion challenges in various industries. Last week JADCO undertook a new challenge, hosting college students! Weeks prior, a senior at Penn State University, Behrend location, contacted JADCO requesting a tour of the facility for a few of the students in the Mechanical Engineering department. The students were tasked to visit “local” manufacturers to understand more about them throughout their school year. Their incentive? Extra credit for each manufacturer they visited.

One of the areas discussed in every company is, "How do we decrease our costs?" Everyone has to be conscious of what their costs are, how to extend their budgets, and make their money work harder for them. For mines, of all kinds, there are wonderful “cost extenders” that can help your budget go a bit further for a minimal amount. Chocky blocks are great time savers, with the ability to patch areas on machinery and equipment to help them last longer.

In mine applications, there are many different pieces of mobile equipment and machinery that can benefit from chocky blocks, donuts and bars.

Moving the MaterialFor the Rubber Tire Dozer application, chocky blocks are installed on the leading edge of the skid plate. Since this is...
