Keech introduces new wear protection system
Steel product specialist Keech has introduced its new Keeliner wear protection system suitable for use with high-wear earthmoving equipment such as crushers and excavator buckets.
Keech says the system, developed from the Keech Innovation and Quality Centre in Bendigo Victoria, offers longer wear life with increased wear material despite a lower product mass, compared with similar liners in the market.
Keech Australia Director of Sales and Marketing David Keech says the volume of throwaway material is dramatically lower too with its new system.
"Overall, we’ve designed Keeliner to maximise wear resistance while minimising installation and down time," he says.
"The result is improved productivity and profitability."
Keeliner uses a patented Sidelock hammerless locking system which Keech says makes it quick, easy and safe to use.
It attaches simply to a reusable adapter that can be welded to flat or curved surfaces. Keech says the strong coupling can withstand the most demanding operational forces.
The company adds the Keeliner system can be used in most applications where protection against abrasion is sought.
The wear protection system can either be used in a single unit or placed in a row to cover large areas. Keech adds the company can also design custom wear resistance packages to suit clients’ specific requirements.
According to Keech, products suitable for use with the Keeliner include crushers; ore bins; chute liners; excavator and loader buckets; dump truck trays etc.
The wear plates are available in a choice of four different variations or can be custom designed to suit requirements. Plates can be manufactured in Keech low alloy steels, Ni-hard iron or high chrome iron.
