Belzona Unearth Quarrying Solutions at Hillhead 2016

Belzona are attending Hillhead 2016 exhibition for quarrying, construction and recycling.

Belzona are pleased to announce its attendance at the biggest quarrying, construction and recycling exhibition worldwide, Hillhead 2016. With over 17,000 industry visitors expected between the 28th and 30th of June, Belzona are excited to showcase some of their latest maintenance innovations, designed to cope with the stresses of one of the harshest industrial environments on the planet. Demonstrating an array of materials, from abrasion-resistant systems to chocking and shimming compounds, Belzona will be highlighting solutions for the repair and protection of machinery and equipment whilst all enclosed within the live quarry surroundings.

Minimising downtime in any quarry is crucial; therefore, Belzona solutions quickly solve maintenance problems with in-situ applications while simultaneously eliminating the need to strip down or disassemble equipment. Belzona 2311 (SR Elastomer) is a versatile example, designed for fast repair, rebuilding and coating of rubber and metal components. Providing outstanding protection against wear, impact and abrasion, this fast curing elastomer can be used for emergency repairs on worn or torn rubber components, including conveyor belts and heavy vehicle tyres. A selection of these repair examples will be showcased at stand PC27.

Significantly, the threats posed by impact and vibration are common place in quarrying processes, leading to the misalignment and deterioration of equipment and machinery. To combat these effects, Belzona 7111 chocking and shimming material has been developed to absorb the physical and thermal shock present throughout the industry. Moreover, the pourable, 100% solids system is specially formulated to spread out evenly across irregular surfaces, ensuring effective bearing underneath, where performance and operating reliability are critical.

Steve Cooper, Belzona Commercial Director, added "The Hillhead quarrying exhibition is renowned for their live demonstrations, which provides Belzona with an excellent platform to display a range of novel repair and protection systems. Using a variety of live examples, Belzona will be highlighting how quickly equipment such as torn conveyor belts and damaged chutes can be returned to service and protected against extreme abrasion, wear and impact."

These cold curing solutions are safe to use and long lasting, with no risk to workers or distortion of equipment as they are cold applied and cold curing. For more information about these solutions, come and visit Belzona at stand PC27 in the Pavilion.
