What is D-Plate (CCO wear plate) - How it's is made & Where it apply?


𝑫-𝑷𝒍𝒂𝒕𝒆 is a wear plate, As the name indicates it is a plate used where abrasive wear is in action. Depends on the region it has other names such as Chromium Carbide Overlay plate(CCO) or which is called- "Abrasion resistant steel wear plate(AR Plate)"

D-Plate (Wear plate, Chromium Carbide Overlay plate CCO-plate...)

𝑫-𝑷𝒍𝒂𝒕𝒆 has already been using in many areas of industry, such as Cement Industry, Power Industry (Thermal Power Plant, Coal Power Plant), Steel Industry, and the Mining Industry... Since in the heavy industry many pieces of equipment are frequently damaged because of having always been in impact, abrasion condition and that's WHY Chromium Carbide Overlay D-Plate is one of the best solutions for repairs and extend the life of equipment by protecting: hard carbide gives protection against wear, this wear being abraded in place of the core steel material of equipment. 

The composition of wear plate (D-Plate)?

𝑫-𝑷𝒍𝒂𝒕𝒆 consists of 2 components:

- Mild steel base plate and onto which would be welded overlay material - one or two layers of highly abrasive resistant chromium carbide (that is overlaid by using high-quality welding wires with Open-Arc welding, Sub-Arc Welding)

*Chemical composition of D-Plate’s overlay materials depends on various applications requested by the particular condition.

Structure of wear plate (D-Plate)

Manufacturing a D-Plate (CCO plate) is not an easy process.  It requires extreme dedication to being day by day upgraded, to shape for the various custom parts of any equipment, to wear abrasion resistance for a longer time, save downtime, and cost-effectiveness while the customers need abrasion resistance solution and repairs.

How to make Wear Plate (D-Plate)?

( Wear-Plates were packed before delivery to the customer)

Nowadays, in the world, there are 2 methods of producing Chromium Carbide Overlay Plate(CCO).

1. Plat Process:

Mild steel plate is wedged on the fixed plat table (By wedge equipment or magnet system). And then, The tip of the Soldering iron move to 2 axes (X - Y: horizontally and vertically) to weld the entire surface of the plate.

(Plat process to made Wear Plate, CCO D-Plate)

2. Rotary Drum Process:

Mild steel plate is bent to become cylinder or whatever curved shape in custom. It would be move rotary and the tip of the soldering iron could stand upright or move horizontally to weld the entire surface. All the welding processes must follow the strict pace is calculated by engineers to ensure that not being cracked, or glitches...

 This is BCC’s process to manufacturing D-Plate.

Applications of D-Plate, Chromium Carbide Overlay plate(CCO), or Abrasion resistant steel wear plate (AR Plate)

Examples of machines or components that might require wear plates or liners are:

  • Crushers
  • Shredders
  • Casting equipment
  • Steel and aluminum mill equipment
  • Heavy earthmoving and mining equipment

Other applications for abrasion resistant steel include:

  • Wear blades
  • Choppers
  • Scrapers
  • Mining tools
  • Chippers
  • Punch press applications
  • Punch press applications
  • Wear rings
  • Wear segments
  • Bucket scrapers

Why D-Plate is one of the best solutions for Abrasion in the heavy industry?

  • Outstanding wear-resistant property (Chromium Carbide Overlay)
  • Economical production cost (Protecting and extending the life of equipment in service)
  • Available to form wear part in various shapes for all types of equipment (D-Parts)
  • Moderate impact resistance & Good temperature resistance
  • Good weldability to most structural steel

For the best quality, particularly abrasion resistance, both hard and tough, long-life service...All 𝑫-𝑷𝒍𝒂𝒕𝒆 are Manufactured From BCC (BaoChi Corp) in Vietnam are made following the strict process of automatic welding systems and then would be tested by a special quality management system, ensuring higher and better quality products: based on ASTM G65 (Abrasive Wear Test)...
