Group of Stellite 6B bars, sleeves, erosion shields, and finished components

At the forefront of Kennametal Stellite innovations, one thing remains constant – setting new benchmarks for performance and durability. With its excellent wear characteristics, hot hardness, corrosion resistance, low friction, and workability, Stellite 6B has become the material of choice for many industries.

In the face of extreme abrasion caused by fly ash at a waste-to-energy plant, KWS suggested the use of Kennametal's Stellite 6B sleeves to combat aggressive wear between their screw conveyor’s coupling shafts and hanger bearings.  Stellite 6B sleeves offer significant protection from extreme conditions such as high temperatures and corrosive environments.  In addition, Stellite 6B is a tough, non-seize-bearing material ideally suited for a range of challenging wear applications.
