The Canadian oil sands have some of the highest demands of its equipment out of all North American industry. In addition to high production demands, all components are subject to harsh weather conditions in challenging climates. Inferior parts (especially wear parts) can cost operations both time and money through decreased output, prolonged downtime, and skyrocketing maintenance costs at every stage. On the other hand, high-quality components can add value to projects by extending replacement cycles, eliminating unnecessary delays, and keeping operations running smoothly.
For nearly 60 years, Iracore has designed and manufactured custom wear materials to solve abrasion and corrosion issues in heavy industry across North America. For the last two decades, we have been working with the Canadian oil sands industry to develop innovative wear products that stand up to harsh conditions and demanding performance requirements. Read on to learn more about our products for the oil sands industry, and how Iracore can take your operation to new heights.
