Our Quarry operator is a world leader in minerals processing, specialists in the field of mining and powder production for underground coal mines, specifically fire prevention applications.

CHALLENGE:

•     Address belt support insufficiencies and belt sagging at the load zone point.

•     Eliminate material spillage/dust and the associated OHS hazards.

•     Eliminate labour time and resources often allocated toward cleaning up spillage.

Material spillage would pile up on a daily basis and due to safety concerns required fencing off to prevent any OHS hazards (trips and falls).  One full-time permanent maintenance staff was recruited to shovel the spillage away, this was labour intensive, time consuming and costly for the operator.

Kinder’s essential transfer optimisation solution is comprised of AirScrape®, TailScrape®, K-Sure® Belt Support System and K-Containment® Seal.   This industry benchmark and first of its kind solution was devised and installed to provide optimal skirting and sealing at the site’s high impact zone and more specifically to eliminate the costly and hazardous material spillage problem identified during site inspection.

RESULTS:

·      Zero material spillage.

·      Product performance expectations exceeded.

·      Ongoing maintenance free operation.

Less wear resulting in extended wear life of skirting and conveyor components

Sites maintenance now report maintenance time and resources devoted to removing 10 tonnes of spillage is no longer required, labour and product loss reductions targets will soon be achieved.
