Weir Minerals Launches New Modular Anti-Abrasion Panels
Fully customisable, high-performance anti-abrasion solutions
Working closely with customers in the mining and minerals processing sectors, Weir Minerals’ expert engineers have developed high-performance wear panels for use in all medium- to high-wear applications. The new modular anti-abrasion panels are ideally suited for localised impact and wear points, and assist in the suppression of noise and vibration.
The modular anti-abrasion panels are manufactured from Linathane® polyurethane or Linard® HD60 rubber, materials engineered for superior abrasion, cut and impact resistance. The Linard® HD60 panels feature compression moulded natural rubber, with embedded high chromium white iron or ceramic wear resistant blocks for long wear life. The all-polyurethane Linathane® panels feature an orange base with a blue wear indicator layer to assist with maintenance scheduling.
These modular panels are easy to fit and replace, and use a self-sealing design to reduce both installation time and costs. Each panel measures 300mm x 300mm and is available in 30mm and 50mm thicknesses to ensure the best fit for specific operating conditions. The interlocking plug design ensures easy alignment, and the secure fastening mechanism reduces the chance of fine material ingress between panels to promote even wear patterns.
Each modular anti-abrasion panel solution can be customised to suit specific lining requirements, including availability of a range of arc studs attached to plugs and left and right corner panels.
