Gangaa Mixers, India – Muller mixer paddle blades

“In mixing of ferrocarbon and alloys for electrode manufacture, we protected muller mixer paddles with Ferobide. Ferobide continues to operate after 6 months with no visible wear, already giving us a life improvement of 3-5 times over hardface welding.”

Skanska Vinci, Sweden Cutterhead of tunnel boring machine

“We welded Ferobide plates around the cutterhead. 2 km of tunnel was bored in highly abrasive granite earth, where high speed subjects the face to extreme forces. Ferobide gives significant lifetime increase of 6-7 times.”


Saint Gobain, Sweden – Cement transportation pipe

“A good solution for repairing holes due to concentrated wear! In this case the cement is only flowing against the area where the Ferobide tiles are welded. These tiles have a good hardness and are ideal as a wear resistant surface.”

(The old repair patches can be seen under the Ferobide tiles and they did not last nearly as long as Ferobide)

Bergene Holm Nidarå, Norway – Chain link protection under scraper of log conveyor

“At each end of this attached to the chain, it is quite heavy and they have problems with the side plate worn fast down to the sleeve which again causes the chain to move. Now we have welded Ferobide at these points which are the most stressful and where the problem is. It has been shown to work well and the chain lasts longer than before”

“To achieve a longer overall working life, Ferobide wear plates must be welded to the wheel at its most vulnerable positions. This machine has already worked for 800 hours with Ferobide, and I believe it would be safe and effective for another 800 hours!”

“After doing 700 acres, shin section of the subsoil leg was just like new.”

FEROBIDE Testimonial

Nigel Knowles, operator

“I have been using Ferobide faced packer scrapers and subsoiler points for two months now. The packer scrapers have completed 1200 acres with no visible wear, standard ones need adjusting after 80 acres. We have also had subsoiled up to 950 acres without changing point metal.”

FEROBIDE Testimonial

Operator at T Soans and Son, Yorkshire

“We welded Ferobide onto the openers and it looks they will last 5 times as long as standard. Easy to use and very versatile.”

FEROBIDE Testimonial

Operator at Breck House engineering, Helmsley

Background: Farmers and contractors of 3,000 acres

“We trialled Ferobide last year and it is going to give us a considerable saving in wearing metal, and a big reduction in downtime so will be more efficient”

FEROBIDE Testimonial

Alistair Nelson – Tibthorpe, Driffield

“We welded Ferobide onto various wear parts, it was easy to work with and extended the working life enormously, we will be using it again”

Henry Neave, Hillington, Kings Lynn

“I was asked to do a trial with the new 8x40x4mm tiles back in March. We fitted half the scrapers on our cultivator with Ferobide and half were left plain, after 180 acres the plain scrapers were worn out but the Ferobide was untouched. I will always fit Ferobide in the future”

Mathew Copley, manager – East Newton Hall Farms, Oswaldkirk, York

“We welded the Ferobide tiles onto Rabewerk plough points, the welding process was easy and the Ferobide very hard wearing, definitely worth doing”

Mr Nutt – Scarborough, North Yorkshire

“After using Ferobide on our subsoiler shins it has completed 400h/a to date with hardly any noticeable wear, it’s possible they will do 1200 h/a.”

Jonathan Rycroft – Flaxton, York

“Having completed 400ha using welded Ferobide tiles on subsoiler legs and feet I can honestly say it is a major step forward on soil engaging parts.”

Richard Watson of Poskitts Carrots

“We have used Ferobide extensively this year on legs and scrapers with great success, we will be using it again”

Nigel Knowles, Pocklington

“This subsoiler was fitted with these scrapers and has since completed over 3000 acres of abrasive sand land.
There has been a saving of £1500 worth of wearing metal, 60 man hours’ maintenance, with an outlay of only £225.”

Ferobide Comparison

JSP Agri, Malton

“These two plough points completed 180 hectares on the same plough at the same time.
The point on the right had been treated with welded hard facing, the point on the left with Ferobide. The right hand point lost 1.5kg, the left hand point lost 65g.”
