Mining equipment are operating is a very dusty, muddy and wet environment. That’s why it’s important to keep the equipment as clean as possible with regular washing with high pressure water to remove, mud, dirty grease, and rock cuttings, that could on the long run damage the unit, generate premature wearing or inhibit some functions and movements.
In order to ease the maintenance operations, and especially the unit washing operations, Sandvik offers to equip underground drills with on-board water High Pressure Cleaner.
This heavy duty High Pressure Cleaner, can generate pressure up to 180 bars. Water is pressurized with a separate hydraulically driven high pressure water pump, powered by the diesel engine of the rig and the system can be used anywhere, as long as the machine is connected to the mine water network.
The High Pressure Cleaner upgrade solution includes a practical spring loaded hose reel.
