A Decade Of Use At The Sechelt Gravel Mine
Written By: Team Sepro | Date: 04.06.19
When choosing aggregate equipment, durability is a must. You want your investment to pay off, and every time your equipment goes down, your operation is leaving money on the table—not to mention the cost of expensive parts that need to be replaced.
We build our aggregate equipment to be robust and simple, increasing time between maintenance outages to lower operating costs. This isn’t just a statement; our equipment has proven results. Sepro’s Tyre Drive Scrubber installed at the Sechelt Sand & Gravel Mine has been running issue-free for over a decade.
The Sechelt Sand & Gravel Mine
One of Canada’s largest aggregate operations, the Lehigh Hanson Materials Limited’s Sechelt mine covers over 250 hectares of land and produces 4 million tonnes of aggregate per year. The mine produces five types of product, namely crushed stone, gravel, recycled construction aggregate, sand, and concrete aggregate.
The mine has been using a Sepro Tyre Drive Scrubber for over ten years with no issues or interruptions to their operation.
Applications Of The Tyre Drive Scrubber
At the Sechelt Sand & Gravel Mine, the scrubber removes clay contamination from crushed aggregate, gravel, and sand to produce a clean product. Other scrubbing applications for our Tyre Drive Scrubber include:
- Removal of clay from hard rock ores before crushing
- Cleaning of contaminated soil and rubble
- Washing of sticky clays to enable effective screening
- Pre-treatment of mineral ores in the metal mining industry
The Tyre Drive Scrubber features a rugged and durable design to make it one of the most reliable scrubbers on the market. We’ve replaced critical components like ring gears, chain drives, and steel wheels with a more reliable Pneumatic Tyre Drive System. This system of rubber tyres mounted on independent gearboxes provides excellent serviceability and reliability.
By using standard major components, downtime is minimized as replacement parts are widely available. The heavy-duty truck tyres can also be sourced locally. You’ll never be without the parts you need to keep it running.
Expertly engineered, durably built, and field proven, the Sepro Tyre Drive Mineral Scrubber can tackle the toughest mineral scrubbing project day in and day out. For more information about mineral scrubbers or aggregate equipment, contact the experts at Sepro Aggregates today.
