At the largest iron ore mine project in the world, Kalenborn solutions help operators eliminate sliding wear problems on a classifier housing chute. The $14 billion mine in northern Brazil produces more than 90 million tonnes per year of high-grade ore, and includes mine, plant, railway and port logistics.
KALIMPACT is a hard material hard material rubber composite. Depending on the specific abrasion and impact resistance requirements, KALIMPACT comprises either ABRESIST fused cast basalt, KALOCER oxide ceramics or with KALMETALL hard overlay welded plates. Each of the different material variations is formed into a vulcanised composite rubber sheet.
Vibrating conveyors are a type of conveyance system which uses vibration to convey materials along a horizontal route. In steelworks, for example, they are used underneath ore bunkers for the discharging of sinter materials. Such material causes major wear to the conveyors, frequently resulting in abrasion damage to the system. The lifetime of such vibrating conveyors can be considerably extended by means of effective wear protection.
