Mill Liners and Products
Iracore International's engineering and design team is continually developing new and creative cost saving solutions to "wear" problems. Using our sophisticated CAD design capabilities, mill parts previously made out of steel can now be custom engineered to take advantage of the benefits offered by rubber and urethane.
These engineered parts are designed to be structurally sound and 100% repairable after a predetermined period of operating time. Engineered mill part applications are limited only by recognition of the need. The ability to repair and reuse these parts at a fraction of new replacement costs represents a significant cost savings to our customers.
Engineered Rubber Discharge Mill Head
Industrial Rubber Applicator's patented Discharge Mill Head is an engineered product designed to replace the heavy castings on the discharge end of mills. Each mill head is custom designed to meet the customer's unique specifications. While Industrial Rubber Applicator's proprietary rubber compound is most frequently used, other rubber compounds may be used to meet special requirements. The ability to rebuild and repair these mill heads significantly reduces replacement costs and eliminates disposal cost. The use of this product in taconite, copper, and molybdenum mining companies throughout the US has demonstrated significant cost savings.
One property now utilizing these discharge mill heads estimates the savings to be approximately $1,800,000 annually, based on an increase in throughput of +2.01% and a decrease in Kilowatt hours of -3.55%.
