When it comes to chrome steel mill liners, MGS Casting manufactures this material for rod mills and ball mills. It is considered to have superior wear abrasion characteristics and is generally used in rod and ball mills. It is more cost-competitive but more brittle than chrome-moly white irons.
- 600 – 700 BHN Cr iron- rod mills and ball mills
- Excellent abrasion resistance. Provide the best combination of toughness and abrasion resistance among white cast irons. The tradeoff is between wear resistance and toughness
- Usually produced by hypoeutectic compositions
- For abrasion resistance: 11-23%Cr, 3.5%Mo. Usually supplied as cast with an austenitic or austenitic-martensitic matrix, or heat-treated with a martensitic matrix. Considered the hardest of all grades of white cast iron
