Clinker

At the outlet of the kiln, the clinker goes through a cooler, after which the clinker lumps must be broken before entering the final stage of grinding by tube or vertical mills.

Here abrasion is the main cause of wear as hammers generally rotate inside a bed of clinker.

In case of red river (un-cooled clinker getting to the clinker crusher), the hammers can undergo a heat treatment that softens them, therefore significantly reducing their wear life.
