Putzmeister Presents Underground Mining Solutions Range at Expomina 2016
The company’s range of equipment for underground mining includes integrated solutions for shotcrete including spraying, transport and batching equipment; as well as specialist pumps for conveying solids, slurries and mine tailings.
Alongside its sales and after sales service partner in Perú, Metal Técnica S.A., Putzmeister will be at Stand E01 showcasing some its equipment designed to optimize underground mining logistics.
Expomina Perú 2016, held at Lima’s Centro de Exposiciones Jockey on September 14-16, expects to welcome more than 100.000 professionals from the mining sector generating around $600 million in deals.
Putzmeister Introduces New Technologies for Shotcrete Operator Training
Among its new initiatives, Putzmeister will be launching a new 3D simulator-based shotcrete operator training course based on the SPM 500 Wetkret spraying equipment.
The 3D simulator-based course, which offers 40 hours of theory and practice, is designed both for new and experienced shotcrete operators, allowing them to learn and correct potential existing bad habits in a safe environment. Find out more about the new operator training course.
The course has been developed through a partnership with Sweden´s Edvirt®, a leading provider of 3D simulation training for the tunneling and mining industries.
Minelift 4 Scissor Lift Platform
Putzmeister will be exhibiting its Minelift 4 scissor lift platform for personnel and cargo specially designed for underground mining operations.
With a 4-tonne lifting capacity and a lifting height of 4 m, it provides a safe mobile working platform that can also be configured to handle piping and ventilation systems installation.
Concrete Pumps and Injection Machines
Putzmeister will also be showcasing the S5 EVTM mortar pump, specially designed for cement bolt and micropile injection in mining. The pump has a mixing drum and a powerful rotor/stator system for greater durability and optimal performance.
The Thom-Katt TK70 trailer-mounted pump will also be on display: it offers a concrete flow of 57 m³/h and high pressure operation to facilitate the pumping of material over long distances. It is equipped with a hydraulic S-valve, which allows the pumping of aggregates of up to 38 mm, and has a reversing the stroke to relieve pressure caused by possible plugs.
Pumping of sludge, slurries and mine tailings with Putzmeister Solid Pumps
Putzmeister Solid Pumps designs piston pumps capable of handling materials with a high-solid content for the mining industry, such as the transport of tailings or backfilling paste in underground mines.
The pump system features a piston pump, a hydraulic power pack to drive the pump and an electric cabinet with a PLC, control and operation panel. Putzmeister piston pumps can operate with a solid content of up to 85 %, depending on material composition. With an output of up to 150 bar they can pump over distances of up to 11 km and achieve effective pumping with outputs of approximately 400 m³/h.
