Boriding / Boronizing of High Wear Agricultural Harvesting Components

Bluewater performs boriding on several different components that are used in agricultural harvesting machines. These components operate in harsh, abrasive conditions where steel surfaces are subject to wear and erosion as crops and soil abrade the surface. Many steel components that were formerly carburized or induction hardened have been converted to boronizing to increase their wear life.   

The useful service life of these components is reported to have more than doubled or tripled and it prevents farmers from having to replace these parts every season. Avoid having to pay for replacement parts every year, along with the costs of unexpected downtime during a harvest makes the slightly higher costs of boriding compared to other treatments an excellent value for the end user.
