We have just published a new customer case study, this time set at a crushing plant in the Pilbara region of WA. It details how our K-Superline® Polyurethane Lining was installed instead of conventional steel chute lining. The plant has benefitted in the following 2 simple but very effective ways:
Reduced the material build up occurring: the B93 durometer type specified for the 1″ thick K-Superline® Polyurethane Lining has a low-friction surface so it immediately eliminated the problem of build up and congestion through to the screen.
Reduced OHS hazards (noise and physical injury): unlike any metal lining, polyurethane absorbs all of the impact so it immediately reduced the noise levels of the material being handled. The repetitive jack-hammering also very physical for the resources deployed to keep crushing production going. Also, as the polyurethane is much lighter than steel, it was less much less awkward to carry and manoeuvre when installing. This is especially helpful in confined spaces such as chutes.

The previous lining lasted approximately 3 months and ow the K-Superline® lasts 50% longer.
