Classifier shoes (also known as flight shoes, fan screw shoes, and de-watering shoes) are critical components in sand and gravel, slurry, and mineral processing operations. However, they are subject to significant wear and abrasion; inadequate wear materials can lead to lost time and money through repair, maintenance, and replacement. Maximizing the lifespan of your classifier shoes will maximize your operation’s productivity by protecting your equipment and lowering overall repair costs.

For nearly 50 years, Iracore has been a leader in creating high-performance polyurethane wear components for industrial applications around the world. Today, our complete inventory of classifier shoes is engineered to outlast steel and rubber components, with polyurethane construction for unmatched performance and durability. Learn more about Iracore classifier shoes below.

Performance-Engineered Wear Materials

Iracore classifier shoes are manufactured using the highest quality materials available, including our proprietary polyurethane compounds. Urethane is a superior wear material in many heavy industrial wear applications thanks to its resistance to abrasion and corrosion, including those found in typical de-watering processes.

Because of urethane’s naturally smooth and slick surface, Iracore classifier shoes enhance slurry flow and reduce material buildup throughout your process. Iracore classifier shoes can save your operation on maintenance and downtime-related expenses, maximizing efficiency and return on investment for you and your stakeholders.

Unlike most other manufacturers, Iracore custom-engineers optimum polyurethane compounds for every application and use case. Slurry composition, abrasion type, and other operating conditions are all factored into the design and manufacturing process to ensure optimal performance in any operating conditions.
