Construction Equipment-Emerging Trends

Construction equipment is continuously evolving as manufacturers incorporate new technologies & telematics to increase efficiency, productivity, reliability, safety & return on investment. Some emerging trends within the construction equipment market are: Higher Expectations from Users Construction is now a key project activity and is getting more complex and at the same time completion schedules are tighter. Hence users are seeking…

PU Foam Fill Tyre Filling

Tyre Filling is a process in which a pneumatic tyre is injected & pressurized with a special 2 component urethane polymer in a precise proportion using a special metering pump. The polyurethane cures into a soft, resilient, synthetic rubber core replacing the air in the tyre. The resultant filled tyre is thus rendered puncture proof and maintains the required inflation…

Puncture Proof Technologies

Industrial & Construction Equipment such as Aerial Work Platforms, Boom Lifts, Skid Steer Loaders, Wheel Loaders, Mining Equipment, Port Cranes, Tele-Handlers etc. are normally fitted with pneumatic tyres. When these machines are used in severe service/harsh underfoot conditions they are prone to frequent punctures, tyre damage and fast tyre wear resulting in losses associated with frequent repair and replacement, downtime…

Tyre Sealants In Industrial/Mining Applications

Tyre sealant is a viscous fiber impregnated liquid solution that is injected into the tyre through the valve stem. In the event of puncture in the tread area, the tyre sealant instantly and permanently seals the injury without the vehicle stopping.  It also seals other causes of air loss such as rim or bead leaks, or the porosity of natural…

Track Pads for Surface Conservation

Heavy tracked equipment such as excavators, horizontal drilling rigs (HDD’s) are fitted with profiled steel grouser shoes. When these machines are required to march over/work on paved roads, the steel grousers damage the surface. Steel-Reinforced, wear resistant, Rubber Pads can be fitted over the steel grousers thus permitting unrestricted movement on paved areas without causing any damage. Other benefits include…

Solid Waste Management Operations – The Solid Tyre Option

Solid Waste Management Operations encompass the entire spectrum that begins with waste collection and ends with disposal or recycling. With the increased awareness on environmental preservation and recycling of waste, the dimension of mechanised waste handling has increased in significance. Municipal waste is now transported to waste processing centres where it is separated and as the case may be –…

Solid Tyres For Mining Applications

Increased demand for mined minerals & resources in the last decade has increased the demands on mining equipment to extract an ever-increasing volume of ore. While the operating conditions of mines have largely remained the same, the equipment being used is bigger, more efficient & capital intensive. This has led to an even greater need for failure-free performance from tyres.…

Solid Tyres For Quarrying

Dump trucks/tippers, wheel loaders and other equipment used in quarrying are subjected to very harsh working conditions. Quarrying being an integrated cycle of different operational processes, the impact of tyre-related downtime leaving any equipment in the chain idle is reduced operational efficiency, higher costs & revenue loss. Normally, these machines are fitted with pneumatic tyres that are prone to punctures…

Over the tyre tracks for Skid Steer Loaders

Skid steers loaders are well accepted for their ability to execute a wide variety of jobs and their maneuverability & compact dimensions. While these work well on hard, paved surfaces, if service conditions are marshy, muddy or sandy, all tyred equipment including skid steer loaders lose traction or start spinning and ultimately get bogged down. At times a crane may…
