Unique wear protection with Profiltra basalt wear plates
Various industries, from food to mining, process raw materials that lead to wear and tear on machinery and equipment. The need for continuous production has increased and downtime is not desirable. That is why companies around the world choose wear protection from Profiltra to help them reduce their operating costs and downtime. Profiltra develops useful and sustainable concepts to make your equipment last longer. One of these unique solutions is the application of wear plates with basalt to protect your machinery and equipment. Basalt is a variety of igneous rock with a high density and uniform mineral structure. By melting the rock, we refine its properties and create a product with excellent physical and chemical properties. Its hardness makes it the ideal raw material for mineral-based, wear-resistant products used worldwide (examples: mining, sugar industry, public environments, breweries, energy companies, steel industry, etc.). The main characteristics of Profiltra basalt compared to natural basalt are: higher hardness, higher strength, higher wear resistance, water absorption 0% and excellent chemical resistance. In addition, basalt is an environmentally friendly, natural and durable material
In its program, Profiltra has different combinations of plates with wear-resistant protection divided into impact plates (hard plastic and AlO92) and abrasion-resistant (basalt). A wear plate is a hard material (for example basalt) formed in rubber which is bonded to a steel base plate with glue or by hot vulcanization. Thanks to this solution, Profiltra offers the right dimensions for every solution. The wear plates are mainly used in environments where high abrasion loads occur in combination with heavy wear and are mechanically placed on the structure. The application of the Profiltra basalt wear plates provides many advantages. In addition to highly wear-resistant protection, the rubber surface also suppresses the noise from falling material.
