Philippi-Hagenbuch updates steel in Hot Slag Bodies
Pitandquarry - Philippi-Hagenbuch is now using SSAB Hardox HiTemp steel in its customized Hot Slag Bodies, which are part of its HiVol Truck Bodies lineup. According to the company, the new steel is designed to withstand extreme temperature environments and will reduce necessary plate thickness while maintaining the product’s service life.
Philippi-Hagenbuch made this announcement at ConExpo-Con/Agg, which is taking place March 10-14 in Las Vegas.
“In the past, steel mill clients requested a unique HiVol truck body to haul hot slag,” says Josh Swank, vice president of sales and marketing for Philippi-Hagenbuch. “Our engineers responded with the Hot Slag Body. Now, with the new HiTemp steel from SSAB, we can provide the same strength and durability with less steel, maximizing payload potential and providing our clients with a better product.”
