Hardox 500 tube

Hardox Tube 500, as hard and tough as our wear plates, offer outstanding performance when you need both high wear resistance and a lighter product.

Despite its hardness, Hardox Tube 500 can be weld, cut, milled and drilled using standard workshop practices. It can replace costly wear products like hard-faced overlay plates and high chrome white iron.

Tolerances
Characteristic Circular wear tube
Tolerances based on the requirements of EN 10219
Outside diameter (D)1) ±1%, with a minimum of ±0.5 mm and a maximum of ±10 mm
Out-of-roundness 2%, when D/T ≤ 100
Thickness (T) ±10% when T ≤ 5 mm and ±0.5 mm when T > 5 mm
Straightness 0.20% of total length and 3 mm over any 1 m length
Mass per unit length Individual tube: ±6%
Standard length ≥ 6000 mm: 0/+50 mm
Exact length Agreed at the time of enquiry and order

1)All external dimensions are measured with a minimum distance from the end of the section. The distance must be a minimum of 100 mm.
