Avoid down­time with Rock-breaker so­lu­tions

The Australian Mining Review - - COMPANIES GEARING UP -

A COR­RECTLY sized hy­draulic rock breaker and suit­ably po­si­tioned boom sys­tem are well-recog­nised, safe and re­li­able so­lu­tions that can max­imise the pro­duc­tiv­ity of any crush­ing cir­cuit.

How­ever, be­fore pur­chas­ing a new rock breaker boom sys­tem, it is im­por­tant to con­sider four crit­i­cal fac­tors to max­imise the re­turn on in­vest­ment and en­sure op­ti­mum per­for­mance of the new boom sys­tem.

Firstly a hy­draulic rock­breaker must be cor­rectly sized by con­sid­er­ing all as­pects of the ap­pli­ca­tion, in­clud­ing rock hard­ness, rock size, ex­pected duty and the space avail­able.

The boom size and reach must be cor­rect to carry the weight of the cho­sen rock­breaker and meet the reach re­quire­ments for the ap­pli­ca­tion.

Cor­rect po­si­tion, el­e­va­tion and work­ing slew an­gle of the boom sys­tem can make a big dif­fer­ence to the use­abil­ity and main­tain­abil­ity of the sys­tem.

The boom sys­tem has ad­vanced safety sys­tems, au­to­ma­tion and re­mote op­er­a­tion op­tions avail­able to in­crease safety and ef­fi­ciency.

To­tal Rock­break­ing So­lu­tions en­gi­neer­ing man­ager Paul In­gle­son said the com­pany helps cus­tomers take ad­van­tage of the ex­ten­sive Ram­mer prod­uct range by se­lect­ing the right boom and rock­breaker for the job.

The com­pany pack­age this with the cor­rect con­trols and power pack to match client re­quire­ments, and work with cus­tomers to op­ti­mise the in­stal­la­tion to en­sure re­li­able op­er­a­tion and max­i­mum pro­duc­tiv­ity and ser­vice­abil­ity.

“We can also as­sist cus­tomers to op­ti­mise the op­er­a­tion of their Ram­mer Boom Sys­tem by pro­vid­ing in­te­grated con­trol sys­tem op­tions to in­crease ef­fi­ciency and safety, and re­duce cy­cle times and down­time due to Rock­break­ing,” Mr In­gle­son said.
