Ammann Group’s Amdurit Wear-Protection System
BY AsphaltPro Staff
Amdurit®, the proprietary wear-protection system from Ammann Group, Langenthal, Switzerland, is designed to provide up to three times the service life of wear-resistant steel and protect valuable parts and components. It should make maintenance easy, too. Instead of replacing a component, simply swap out the Amdurit covering.
The wear-protection system results in savings on multiple fronts, according to the manufacturer. Components last longer, which translates to fewer replacements and therefore lower costs. In addition, plant owners also avoid the labor costs associated with replacement of the components.
When replacements are quick and easy, overall plant uptime is improved.
There are many potential areas of use, including drum inserts; transition and discharge locations; feeders (both RAP and traditional); and silos. The preferred areas of use with regard to components for reclaimed asphalt (RAP) feed include:
- RAP elevator feed and discharge;
- Drum pipe infeed, cone and scales in the drum pipe;
- Intermediate container and chute in the mixer; and
- RAP feed, worm screw and screw trough.
A range of fastening methods, such as welding, clamping and bolting, make it easy to replace the original part with Amdurit wear protection.
When looking for ways to lower operating expenses, don’t forget about the value that results from properly protecting a plant.
