Wear Protection Materials

There are a number of materials that can be used for wear prevention in rock-crushing equipment. The most important factor is to select the right material for the specific application. Some of the most common materials include:


These alloys are designed to be applied as a coating to wear surfaces. They are typically composed of high-quality steels and are available in a variety of different grades to suit different applications. Mellott has a team of Application Engineers with decades of experience that are armed with the latest technology to determine the right liner profile and metallurgy that suits your crusher’s needs.

Once Mellott has determined the best profile for your crusher, we can help to supply those liners. Mellott offers OEM and aftermarket manganese wear liners that fit Metso, Eagle, Lippman, Superior, Cedarapids, JCI, KPI, Telsmith, Sandvik, Pegson, Extec, and more. Our vast inventory of mantles, bowl liners, jaw dies, concaves, blow bars, anvils, shoes, and more are available in 11-14%, 18% and 22% alloys. 

Screen Media

Polyurethane provides a superb wear life, noise reduction capabilities, flexibility to prevent blinding and pegging, and an ease of installation that proves its one of the safest media options out there. Along with polyurethane, wire mesh and rubber media are options too.

Reduce risk and minimize exposure with some of the industry’s most popular, safe, high quality and environmentally friendly products. Mellott offers an array of these products including polyurethane, rubber, and wire screen media. These vary from magnetic opencast polyurethane panels to hammerless injection molded polyurethane 1×1 panels. 

Wear Protection Liners

Polyurethane liners are another versatile option for wear prevention. They can be used in a variety of applications, and offer good protection against both abrasive and impact damage. Mellott offers a multitude of liners for any area where materials flow including Chute Liners, Magnetic Liners, Pan Feed Liners, Cross Member Protections, Curved Application, and more. 


Tips For Minimizing Wear

In order to protect your equipment that is being used, it is important to take measures to prevent wear and tear. There are a few things that can be done to achieve this:

The first step is to make sure that the equipment is properly sized for the job. If it is too big or too small, it will put unnecessary stress on the machinery.

Secondly, proper maintenance and lubrication are essential. This includes managing the amount of debris, as well as making sure that the oil levels are adequate.

Finally, operators should be aware of how to use the equipment to the best of its ability. For example, knowing when to replace the manganese can not only save downtime, but also money. Wear products will need to be replaced and getting to this sooner rather than later is key.
