Wear and tear products are implemented for a very specific reason; to reduce the amount of weathering heavy-duty equipment experiences during its daily operations in the most demanding environments known to the industrial sector. Without the correct wear and tear product, machinery in the mining world simply would not be able to carry out the processes that they do. Wear and tear solutions have become a fundamental part of any mining or materials handling system, proving to be just as important as the actual machinery and equipment they were designed to protect.
If these wear and tear products are not installed correctly – and this could entail a minute mistake during implementation – the whole protection system can become vulnerable, and can very quickly become a major inlet for considerable damage. If this is not identified and operations continue, it will not be long before the damage makes itself known. At this point, there is no other option but to spend large amounts of money on repairs and even worse, replacements that need to be re-installed. This also results in downtime for the business and ultimately, big losses in production and profit.
Wear and tear products that are installed properly will not only help avoid these headaches, but prolong the lifespan of machinery and components and increase re-sale values of equipment when the time comes to sell.
How does water jet cutting work?
Water jet cutting is a computer-controlled process that utilises machinery that directs a very fine jet of water with monumental pressure (5,000 psi) that cuts through materials with a single pass – without shredding or other forms of damage that so often occur with traditional cutting techniques.
Below is a detailed explanation of how it works, straight from our Water Cutting Page:
“The water jet cutting action takes place as a result of ultra-high pressures water being forced through a nozzle as small as 0.76mm. The pressurised water exits the nozzle at extremely high velocities in a coherent stream that produces a clean cut. The compact, lightweight cutting head is designed for reliability in high cycle, on/off applications. Unlike metal cutters, a water jet never gets dull and it cannot overheat.”
This factory-based service is suitable for:
• Mill feed spout seals
• Custom curtains
• Conveyor skirts
