Steel in Mining


Steel and mining go together like cookies and cream, only maybe not quite so sweet! 

In the severe conditions of a mine, wear resistant steel plate is the best material suited for the mining industry.

Wear Resistant Steels for the Mining Industry

Steel is commonly used throughout the mining industry and has been developed to have high wear, fatigue resistance, and high strength. With high tensile strength and high wear resistance, steel equipment can be used multiple times in mining without material depreciation. Wear resistant steel plate, also known as abrasion-resistant steel plate, is particularly suitable for mining, applications including liners and structural elements for buckets, skips, chutes, bins, ore pockets, conveyors, dump truck, etc. Therefore, wear resistant steel plate is used in situations where abrasion, wear, tear and impact is particularly critical. 

Uses of Steel in Mining Equipment and Machinery 

The requirements for steel used in mining applications are not only unique but also challenging, but in the tough conditions of a mine, steel is a perfectly reliable material that can perform as needed. Most of the mining infrastructure is created using wear resistant steel, structural steel, stainless steel, and high strength steel. Top hammers, tools, demolition equipment, drill rigs, mining support equipment, grinding media, mining screens, fluidized bed boilers, pumps, heat exchangers, as well as heavy mining machinery such as mass excavators, bulldozers, shovels, and crushers all rely on the material properties of steel. In addition, steel also has significant cost advantages compared with other materials.
