At Sandvik SRP’s workshop located in Svedala, Sweden, great efforts are being made to recycle as much manganese in steel parts as possible. Manganese steel is originally used in Sandvik’s crusher wear parts. This alloy is chosen for its hard wearing properties.
SOME FACTS ABOUT MANGANESE STEEL:
- It is used in all Sandvik jaw and cone crushers both for mining and construction applications
- The material is hard wearing – the surface hardness increases during operation of the crusher, it provides a wear resistant surface and a ductile core
- Sandvik manganese steels are composed using the extensive experience and knowledge of materials experts within Sandvik
Three typical compositions of manganese steel produced within Sandvik Mining are:
|12% Mn, 1.4% Cr*||18% Mn, 0.8% Cr*||18% Mn, 2.0% Cr*|
