WE ARE CONNEXUS
Innovative Solution Providers
In the demanding environment of wear parts, reliability of both product and supplier is absolutely critical.
Connexus Industries has built its reputation over the past 70 plus years on ensuring customer satisfaction. Quality products are delivered on time, on budget and are supported by a large domestic inventory and around the clock customer service.
CXS hammer tips are either cast in I’Anco Alloy 3A and quenched and tempered to a through hardness of 444BHN or they are forged from 4140 Alloy steel and again quenched and tempered to a target hardness of 444 BHN. To further enhance the life of the tips we hard face the cutting edge with Tungsten Carbide chips embedded in a Chromium Carbide hard facing material
Shredder grates for wood and bark applications operate in brutal conditions. Sand, rocks and tramp metal add to the harsh environment found in these shredding applications. CXS grates are fabricated and formed from quenched and tempered steel plate that is through hardened and free of soft spots. This allows for long life and even wear. Custom designed cutting edges are available on some grate styles to aid in cutting stringy bark such as Cedar or Basswood.
CXS crusher bars are cast in extremely high hardness materials for rock crushing applications. Based on customer request, we can supply cast crusher bars in either Hadfield Manganese steel or High Chrome White Iron. We can supply both materials with machined fits to ensure we match our bars to your requirements.
Cast Hadfield Manganese Steel Liners
Hadfield Manganese steel is a work hardening steel that is perfectly suited to high impact applications. The surface of this steel can work harden up to 600BHN and once polished has a very low coefficient of friction. Some typical applications include liners for the crushing chamber of concrete recycling equipment, car shredders and apron feeder hoppers just to name a few.
Cast Ni-Hard and High Chrome White Iron Liners
ASTM A536 irons are produced at extremely high hardness values. Depending on the grade of material selected, hardness can range between 550-700 BHN. These materials are very effective in high abrasion applications such as chute liners, ball and rod mill liners and conveyor liners.
Heat Resistant Ductile Iron Liners (Our hot lime drag conveyor liners)
Our Heat Resistant Ductile Iron Liners are designed to provide extended liner life at elevated temperatures. Our most common application for this material is the discharge conveyor for the lime kiln in pulp mills. This iron is very stable at the extreme temperatures found in the kiln application (1,700-2,000 degrees F) and combined with our pocket style surface provide a liner that will last for decades.
