What Is A Temporary Repair?

How temporary is a temporary wear plate repair?

When you can least afford to have equipment break down, you need to promptly address worn out wear plate.

You have to react as quickly as a fireman to a 5-alarm fire. You have to put it out.

Standard procedure is to grab whatever metal is on hand, stick it in and try to get everything operating as quickly as possible. The next thing you’ll hear is, “This will be back up and running soon; right?”

What I have discovered in many industrial applications, what was intended as a temporary repair is seen as a permanent repair when the next shift arrives.

If it is not a problem when they start work, it must be fixed. It has magically turned into a permanent repair.

What do you use for a patch? If you are taking the time to make a temporary repair, use a material that is able to live long enough until you can schedule adequate time to properly replace the issue.

It takes EXACTLY the same amount of time to install an under-performing wear plate, as it does the best performing wear plate.

When the material choices you are installing is the same size and thickness, either will take the same amount of time to put it in place.

The bottom line answer is use the best material available so you don’t have to deal with it in a week or a month.
