Self shielded open arc flux cored wire.
LOTHERME OA-653 is an open-arc hard-surfacing wire specially designed to
deposit hard finely dispersed Chromium carbides alloy in high chromium martensitic
matrix with micro-alloy additions in the weld metal. The wire welds with spray arc.
The deposited weld metal is good resistant to abrasion & erosion with very good
bonding properties. Weld bead is machinable by grinding.
LOTHERME OA-653 is suitable for applications where heavy compressive loads along with abrasion properties are required. The wire is especially suitable for sugar mill crushing rollers. The wire operates in both dry arcing & also in wet arcing condition of sugar mill rolls.
The wire also find use in screw conveyors, coal & cement crusher rolls, pulverizer
rolls, shovel bucket teeth, dredge cutters, etc.
