One link in a chain re­ac­tion

The Australian Mining Review - - COMPANIES GEARING UP -

AS the for­ma­tive link in the min­ing sup­ply chain, haul roads, tip heads and pit floors must flow with­out in­ter­rup­tion, how­ever all too of­ten sharp rocks pose a ma­jor threat to this rhythm.

Thank­fully, the Broons Square Im­pact Roller can pro­vide af­ford­able in­surance against break­ing that cru­cial first link.

Used in mine sites around the world, the towed Square Im­pact Roller has been re­duc­ing over­size de­struc­tive rock for decades.

Avail­able in both 1.3m wide 8-tonne mod­ule and 1.95m wide 12-tonne mod­ule con­fig­u­ra­tion, these units frac­ture and bury the of­fend­ing rocks that are ca­pa­ble of in­flict­ing fa­tal tread and tyre wall dam­age to mine trucks.

It’s not just the cost of the dam­aged tyre, it’s the lost pro­duc­tiv­ity while de­com­mis­sioned – so there’s plenty of profit to be ex­tracted by us­ing the unique Square Roller.

Towed at around 10kph, the Broons Square Im­pact Roller is sim­ple to op­er­ate, low on main­te­nance and high on pro­duc­tiv­ity.

Fit­ted with a wear plate pack­age on the im­pact faces of the mod­ule, ma­chines are avail­able for rental or sale.

Broons’ ex­pe­ri­enced staff are able to train mine op­er­a­tors within hours and start se­cur­ing the ground sur­face.

The com­pany also of­fers the well proven towed Grid Roller as an al­ter­na­tive for mines with softer rock to be crushed.

Broons can be con­tacted on (08) 8268 1988 or via email at info@broons. com, and a brochure is avail­able at:­pact.
