Punch Plate Screen Case Study

Our literature proudly states JADCO QT-Plus ® delivers up to three to five times the wear life of commodity AR400.


This customer achieved 150 TIMES more tons with QT-Plus ® screens over the OEM punch plate screens!


Don’t just take our word for it; here is an email we recently received:


Good afternoon,


I thought you’d like to hear about this QT Plus ® punch plate screen success story.


M y customer had an issue with longevity on their two deck screens. They run an 8” minus across the top deck.


On their feed side they were only getting between 7-10K tons before having to put in new screens.

This worn out OEM screen is not sizing properly after just 7,000 to 10,000 tons of production.

I introduced him to JADCO wear plate, and they installed a 1/2” JADCO QT Plus ® 48” x 46-3/4” punch plate screen with 3” hexagon openings.

Initially with the QT Plus ®, he achieved 1.5 million tons running on the feed side before swapping it out.



He then changed out the whole deck with the punch plate and on the opposite side of the feed end. He has now passed 2 million tons and is still running strong.


He is very pleased with this product and gave us many kudos this morning. Thank you!



We can’t promise you will get 150 times longer life in your application using QT-Plus ®, but you will always get the best performance using JADCO wear resistant steel products.


DELIVERING SCREENS WITH CONSISTENT HARDNESS IS WHAT SEPARATES THE WEAR PLATE PERFORMERS FROM THE PRETENDERS. YOU CAN EASILY TELL THE PRETENDERS; THEY ONLY TALK ABOUT THEIR LOW PRICE.



Does It Seem Like We Continually Talk About Through Hardness?


Despite competitor’s claim their wear plate is through hardened, very few steel wear plates actually have the same hardness throughout the thickness of the steel. Most are only hard on the top and bottom surface like an Oreo cookie. Click Here for more information.


Having screens consistently deliver predictable wear is critical for you to replace your screens without upsetting your production schedule.


At JADCO, we prefer to deliver your screens made from the highest quality, longest lasting wear steel available. Our customers sleep easy knowing they will get the same long life they depend on, without worrying if they will suffer a catastrophic failure tomorrow.


For over the last 40 years we have focused exclusively on providing consistent, longer life for our customers. This is why JADCO’s QT Plus ® delivers better performance in your applications than any wear plate you have used previously.
