MINING EQUIPMENT WEAR MANAGEMENT PROGRAM

DON’T BE WORN DOWN BY WEAR

Maximising the life and use of assets is vital to mining productivity. Abrasion, wear and impact can affect mining productivity in many ways, including unscheduled downtime and maintenance, and operating costs, including fuel.

ASSET LONGEVITY. IMPROVED PRODUCTION RESULTS

Wear can greatly affect the efficient running of the equipment used in an open cut mining operation.

Schlam has an established history of helping miners to manage the effects of wear and impact, and to improve their per ton profitability.

Our wear management service focuses on the unique conditions and challenges faced on individual mine sites. The service includes site visits and inspections where wear rates are measured, enabling corrective measures to be prescribed. 

Our assessments on current wear package/liner systems allow us to identify areas for improvements to increase operating efficiency, decrease downtime, reduce operating costs, and reduce safety risk associated with maintenance activities.

We then customise your wear packages, selecting materials designs to suit individual operational requirements, ensuring equipment cycle times are at their optimum to deliver maximum value.

The programme has assisted many hard rock miners in extending the life of their dump truck bodies to up to 50,000 hours of use, over 10 years.
