Understanding the Quarrying Industry

Processing minerals from quarry to transportation involves various stages and comes with many challenges. During these stages, operations like crushing, washing, screening, and classifying are directly in contact with the minerals and suffer from the abrasive nature of these materials. The equipment degradation depends on the type, size, and volume of the minerals processed. The hardness of the minerals, as measured by the Mohs scale, influences the level of investment required to safeguard the plant and equipment from early failure.

Understand Your Equipment

Historically, metal materials like QT and manganese plates and castings have been employed in crushing operations to reduce the product to minus-sized aggregate.

For further processing of sand and small aggregate, hydraulic polymer materials such as rubber and polyurethane have proven effective.

However, it's essential to carefully assess the specific challenges posed by various mineral grades and types, as a one-size-fits-all approach rarely succeeds.

Densit understands your Requirements

In identifying all relevant criteria, Densit is able to make sound recommendations supported by firm performance guarantees. This option reduces the inherent risk of uneconomic investment as the costs of replacement can sometimes outweigh the initial CAPEX cost.

By implementing sound practice at the design and refurbishment stages of plant improvements, we can often match the protection system to plant and operation longevity and prevent the ongoing problems associated with maintenance and repair.
