Tough surface mining conditions combined with hydraulic inefficiencies can cause long periods of downtime and expose the operation to potential liability. As much as 47% of downtime can be attributed to hydraulic power and belt drive failures. 

Gates offers an integrated system consisting of some of the most advanced and durable hoses, couplings, crimpers, belts and accessories in the industry. 

Gates MegaSys is a fully integrated hydraulic hose and coupling system ideal for mining applications. The hydraulic hose system is FRAS and MSHA approved, supports constant pressures ranges up to 550 Bar, and features colour coded laylines for easier and safer identification. Gates MegaSys offers a combination of technology, performance and flexibility unmatched by any other hydraulic product on the market.

The Gates line of highly reliable belts requires almost no maintenance, lubrication or re-tensioning, reducing expenses and avoiding downtime. A belt failure cannot be resolved by replacing the belt in the drive; ignoring the underlying cause results in ever-decreasing performance and costly belt replacement. Gates can help diagnose belt failure issues and provide assistance on replacing metal components or complete drive systems.
