Kinder & Co supplied a K-Redi-Liner ceramic lining system to Leslie Vale Quarry to replace their existing steel wear liner.
Leslie Vale Quarry produces more than 700,000 tonnes a year of high-quality hard rock dolerite products, supplying the construction industry with high-quality aggregate in road base materials.
In addition to their fixed plants, Leslie Vale operates a modern fleet of track-mounted mobile crushing and screening plants, comprising of primary, secondary and tertiary units, as well as screens and pugmills. The plant can be configured to suit many applications with crushing and screening units having a production capacity of up to 250 tonnes an hour.
The high volume of their crushing operations resulted in their steel liner getting worn out and needing replacement frequently. The liner lasted on average only five months.
Kinder & Co recommended their K-Redi-Liner ceramic panels on a trial basis. Thanks to its superior wear properties, this ceramic lining system lasted for over three years. Leslie Vale Quarry is extremely satisfied with the system, which has exceeded their performance expectations.
