Based in New Zealand, our client holds over 80 years of expertise in construction and roadworks. We take a closer look into the wear lining challenges faced at one of their aggregate/quarrying operations.
The Quarry has previously relied on Bisalloy 80 with wear plates welded over the top to absorb the impact. Overtime maintenance teams pointed out the original steel liners were not satisfactory and failed to meet performance targets. Intensive observations concluded, the liners couldn’t last the distance intended and were extremely difficult to change, this was due to extra welding requirements.
- Extend the service life of steel liners.
- Access to and changeout of liners was difficult and time consuming.
- Escalating costs due to frequent liner replacements.
Kinder and our New Zealand Field Technical Representatives visited the Quarry to gain valuable operational overview of the wear lining issues onsite. Later, the team presented Kinder’s K-Redi-Liner® Ceramic KC Lining, a proven, longer lasting and high-performance wear resistant solution that can endure the harshest aggregate/quarrying application. Quarry maintenance teams installed and mounted the K-Redi-Liner® Ceramic solution with ease, efficiency and without delay.
Some positive outcomes reported, “have not had to rotate K-Redi-Liner® anticlockwise yet after 1,250 hours, previously would’ve had to reline twice by now, which takes the impactor out for the day”.
