Wear-Con SHC800 Cast Wear Panels are cast from a proprietary blended alloy with a hardness of 55 to 58 HRc, according to the company. SHC800 Wear Panels feature abrasion, erosion and corrosion resistance; and are easy to install and replace.
The wear panels can easily be bolted or welded into place. The most common method of installation is bolting with Wear-Con Plow Bolts through the counter-sunk holes. Standard Plow Bolts come with all SHC800 Wear Panels. They can also be plug welded with 309-310 Stainless Steel Rod.
Wear-Con SHC800 Wear Panels provide maximum abrasion resistance along with the ability to withstand temperatures up to 900 degrees F. They are available in an array of sizes and thicknesses to fit your wear needs.
“When we install SHC800 Wear Panels, we are, in a sense, pulling out the big guns in the fight against wear,” said Dean Green, Wear-Concepts’ project maintenance manager and field crew supervisor. “Every time they are installed either on fabrications in the shop or in the field, I think to myself, ‘We won't be replacing that any time soon.’ And we don’t.”
