Weir Minerals introduce modular anti-abrasion panels

Interlocked Linard® modular anti-abrasion panels with ceramic and chromium white iron inserts can be replaced individually in 4 min.
The modular anti-abrasion panels provide a cost-effective and convenient solution for reducing downtime caused by high impact and abrasive wear in mines and quarries.
Available in 30 mm and 50 mm thickness, the panels are suited to minimising wear and maintenance in localised impact and wear points. The wear life is owed to the wear material: Linard HD60 rubber in a rigid self-sealing construction with steel backing. The optional composite ceramic (92% alumina) or high chromium white iron inserts add to the panels' wear life.
“Our new Linard panels have been designed from the ground up to last in some of the most arduous wear applications. Depending on the customer’s needs, we offer composite panels with either ceramic or high chromium white iron inserts,” said Mark Doyle, Global Product Manager – Rubber, Spool and Hose for Weir Minerals.
Refined through trials in mine site applications, the panels have replaced a competitor’s teflon wear panels in chutes across two quarries run by Boral Australia, saving more than AUS$12 000/y in direct costs and achieving uptime increases due to a 90% reduction in shutdowns.
The 300 mm2 panels interlock to facilitate installation and replacement, while reducing the potential for fine material to ingress between the panels. Linard modular anti-abrasion panels are supplied in a convenient kit including a range of hold down plugs, and capability to supply drawn arc studs where needed to provide a convenient off the shelf but customisable solution to the application.
