Asphalt mixing plant with friction drive
Test July 2003
Near the inlet a kit of 3x wear-protection adhesion blocks type 10035 has been mounted.
Outlet: no wear-protection blocks were mounted.
Control order of client:
Covering and sealing of bootom side of gears and paper insert
29.10.2003 - 9589 operating hours:
Inserting control paper beneath the drive gears
18.11.2003 - 9715 operating hours:
control pictures – see above
Metal-protection blocks are primarily delivered in block-form with steel mountings and consis of molybdenum disulfide (MoS2) and some other components that support optimum friction coefficients.
Metal-protection blocks coat metal surfaces with a very hard and solid protection layer of 0,005 to 0,01 mm.
This layer produces a constant friction coefficient depending on the load
Respective steel mountings with spring steel compartment are included. The mounting is easy and cost-effective.
As for asphalt mixing plants tests have shown a three-times extended maintenance interval of drive and support gears as well as races.
Characteristics of wear-protection blocks:
Mounting points of block-brackets on inlet gears through the cover. (illustration)
Mounting of 1 Kit / gear adhesion or lubrication block with 2 to 8 blocks depending on gear-width.
The coating is applied to the ring and the gear above.
After approx. 3-4 weeks the whole surface of all parts should be coated. In that way gears and rings run on a layer of molybdenum which protects the metal surface from wear.
The operating life of gears and rings may be tripled.
