The new Hardox Tube 500 range has been launched. The new range provides the same hardness and toughness as Hardox wear plate, but in circular form. Hardox Tube 500 was developed to give outstanding performance in any application where high wear resistance in combination with a lighter product solution is beneficial.
“The new Hardox Tube 500 range completes the existing Hardox family product range. We have a long experience of developing wear-resistant steel tubes. The final properties are set after tube rolling and welding, which guarantees consistency as well as high hardness and toughness qualities, just like all Hardox products,” says Fredrik Mikaelsson, Manager for Tubes & Sections at SSAB.
Hardox Tube 500 is cost efficient throughout its entire life cycle
Hardox Tube 500 is suitable for transporting all types of abrasive materials such as wet concrete, soil, gravel and ore slurry. Its extreme wear resistance allows for a lighter product with a long service life. Using Hardox Tube 500 can increase the competitiveness of certain products by extending their service life by two, five, ten times or more.
Hardox Tube 500 is available from stock in 88.9-133 mm diameters and different material thicknesses. Custom tubes in thinner materials and other diameters are also available.
