There’s a new Element product on the shelves: rubber-metal liners for mills
Rubber-metal is a trending material for mill liners which solves the aforementioned problem. The rubber allows one to soften the impact of grinding bodies and processed material against the liner’s surface.
Metal insertions are featured within a rubber base. The rubber absorbs the impact of the ore, while the metal insertions maintain the liner’s integrity. Indeed, this allows us to apply more solid and wear-resistant alloys of cast iron and steel, with the highest hardness ratings (up to 650 HB).
By increasing the between-repair run, a company reduces operating costs relating to equipment maintenance and the grinding process. Moreover, complete or partial relining is facilitated due to the prevention of liner pinning.
Configuration of lifters is maintained within the whole period of service, providing an optimal trajectory of grinding bodies which keeps mill efficiency at the maximum level.
Another important advantage of this new product is its weight. A rubber-metallic liner weighs 30%-60% less than a metallic one.
Metal insertions can be manufactured from various alloys, depending on the type of ore and the conditions of operation. Contact Element via the online form so that the company’s team is able to select the perfect solution for you and your customers.
