IS THE WORLD LEADER
commitment to excellence is unsurpassed, resulting in exceptional
quality and outstanding customer service. With over 55 years
experience producing the best Ni-Hard castings, Texaloy sets the
industry standard. Our commitment to excellence is reflected in
every casting we make.
Texaloy's modern induction furnaces
provide high quality molten Ni-Hard at just the right temperature to
molds on the pouring floor.
Every Mixer Blade cast at Texaloy
contains its own unique casting number. This number provides access
to information including the heat number, chemistry, carbon
equivalent, pouring temperature as well as other critical facts. Just
another step in ensuring the consistency and integrity of our
ENSURES CONSISTENT QUALITY
Close tabs are
kept on each step of the manufacturing process, ensuring the overall
consistency and quality of our products. The information we receive
from the different systems in place enables us to make adjustments
throughout the development of our products
Once the casting is complete, it is
sent to our cleaning, finishing and inspection stations where
risers, gating, parting lines and mold materials are removed. The
Quality Control Department gives all of Texaloy's products a final
inspection and then castings are packaged and readied to ship.
Texaloy's castings are in over 80 countries around the world.
55 Years in
the Making.Texaloy's production of high
quality Ni-Hard castings dates back 55 years. These castings, called
Long Bottoms, Trowels, or Castings, are used in the
concrete industry and are precision machined to close tolerances.
Make the Difference.

(Etched with Aqua Regia) The hardness of Ni-Hard 1 is a function of
the proper ratio of hard carbides to the martensitic matrix.
Texaloy's ability to produce a "balanced alloy" makes Texaloy
Ni-Hard the standard in the concrete industry.
It's in the Details.
Samples from every
heat poured at Texaloy are polished, etched, and examined under a
microscope to ensure the proper matrix structure and the correct
amount of M3C carbides.
Each casting begins with the perfect mold, ensuring the quality of
each casting. With over 100 years of combined experience, Texaloy's
molders bring a wealth of knowledge to the molding process, creating
new air set molds that can withstand the heat and stress of
Texaly conducts "toughness" tests on samples from every heat of iron
poured. Using a dynamic tear testing machine designed by the 5D
Special Iron Committee of the American Foundrymen's Society, the
toughness and durability of Texaloy's materials are tested every day
in our foundry. Texaloy is one of only a few locations, including
the Department of Energy, that has this testing equipment.
Every Ni-Hard heat produced at Texaloy is inspected for proper
chemistry. Using a spectrometer, our inspectors make sure each heat
of Ni-Hard castings is produced according to certified ASTM
Ni-Hard is poured into molds at specific temperatures and allowed to
solidify. This process produces a quality casting that is fully
dense and free of defects. The casting in the mold then goes to
shake out where the casting is removed from the sand mold.
Measuring liquids, solidus, and beginning- and end-of-freezing
temperatures, Texaloy's computer-operated Eutectometer provides
valuable metallurgical information that is critical to the
production of high-quality Ni-Hard castings.
