When working in high abrasive conditions, it’s important to control the wear of the crucial elements of the bucket, and then use the right protections. Our Trasteel Bi-Metal protections are often mounted on the new bucket, but since they are very easy to apply, it’s possible to move and place them on the most damaged area while the bucket is working. In the pictures below, in the areas highlighted in orange, you can find a simple example of the parts in the blade and adapter that are more subject to wear. That is where the protection is applied. In this case, Bi-Metal protections have been applied later on, creating an obstacle to the flow of abrasive material.
We thank the company Tomatis Giacomo Srl for the pictures, that show the correct application of out Trasteel branded Bi-Metal protections.
