Pressure, Monitoring and Safety – the Life of a Rota Val Rotary Valve

HD600 rotary valve being pressure tested by Baseefa for ATEX certification
Rotary Valves
While casting is generally a reliable method, every now and again a flaw in the casting can occur. To x-ray every casting is impractical and expensive, so to ensure the integrity of every explosion/flame containment rotary valve that leaves the factory, Rota Val has always hydrostatically pressure tested all iron valves to 20 barg and stainless steel to 13 barg for fifteen minutes before certification is provided.

Conveyor Belt Cleaning
Flexco recently introduced the FMS Medium-Duty Secondary Cleaner to its complete line of belt cleaning products. The simple, yet durable, design of the cleaner provides quality cleaning performance at an affordable price. Made with heavy-duty steel with a corrosion-resistant powder coating, the FMS is ideal for use on mining conveyors with belt speeds up to 1000 fpm (5 m/s). It can be used for belt widths ranging from 18” to 72” (450 to 1800 mm), with additional sizes available upon request.

Shovel & Excavator Payload Monitoring delivers Productivity

 According to MineWare founder and CEO Andrew Jessett, the key to improving shovel productivity and reliability is to provide timely, accurate and clear data to all stakeholders in the shovel operation.
Truck & Shovel Mining
Global mining technology company MineWare believes shovel-based payload monitoring is set to supersede traditional truck-based methods through the delivery of significant cost savings, more accurate data and ultimately, more consistent payloads in trucks. MineWare founder and CEO Andrew Jessett claims variations in operator performance and material properties remain a significant and costly issue for the mining industry globally.
