Abrasive environment
How can we improve performance and life of a replacement part in a highly abrasive environment?
There are a few ways to improve performance and wear life of a cast part , The first is improving the design of the part and Secondly utilize a superior alloy for the casting. Other ways to improve a part is to add material in high wear areas  this is a very simple fix but obviously would work only if fit and functionality are not jeopardize. Wear life can also be affected by chemical composition and heat treat process.  Working hand in hand with a knowledgeable foundry  engineer and metallurgist is a key component to achieving the desired combination of part design, choice of alloy and process enhancements to produce the perfect cast wear part complete with longer wear life.
