Advanced Technology for Sandvik Machinery
Spreaders are used in the open pit mining industry to move or “spread“ different sorts of raw materials from one location to another.
Spreaders can be found in Mines, where different environmental conditions are to be taken into consideration.
Some of these conditions such as humidity, temperature, dust contamination, rust considerations will affect the design of the machine and the components used.
A spreader is fully mobile and has many moving parts. These parts include for example chains, tracks, wheels, pulleys, drive belts, slew decks and booms.
Most of these moving parts are able to move via bearings. In order for the bearings to move smoothly and accurately lubricants are used to stop the metal surfaces from wearing out. When there are many lubrication points an automatic lubrication system can be used to renew the lubricant in regular intervals and increase the life expectancy of the bearings.
CHINA HAS LARGE OPEN PIT MINES WHERE SPREADERS AND OTHER MACHINERY WORK AT ‐40 DEGREES CELSIUS.
IN SUCH CASES THE EFFECTS OF THE COLD TEMPERATURE MUST BE TAKEN INTO CONSIDERATION FOR THE AUTOMATIC LUBRICATION SYSTEM.
