Out at Site, Out at Mine

A solution was needed at a mine site for a bolting application on the primary Jaw Crusher. A new approach was needed following an injury on the site where a large and heavy pneumatic rattle gun had been used. A Specialised Force (SF) representative inspect the application and needed to provide a solution within 1 week. The Durapac LPC-Series Low Profile Hydraulic Torque Wrench coupled with an extra-long extension reaction arm was found to be the ideal solution for this particular job. All items provided were: Durapac Hydraulic Torque Wrench LPC8-90 (Bolt Diameter: 60mm and A/F Size: 90mm) and Durapac Extension Reaction Arm LPC8RA21.

The SF representative returned to the site 5 days later with all of the necessary equipment. The team that was on site was shown how to use the equipment and within 5 hours they were comfortable with the dos and don’ts specific to the product. SF was able to provide an effective solution to the issue in a short space of time. The Specialised Force Technical Representative was able to provide knowledge about the products and was able to deliver hands-on experience.
