Severe tonnages – No match for heavy-duty impact beds


Flexco partnered with SIMEC mining in South Australia to bring together a case study outlining the solutions which helped the facility combat their excessive iron ore spillage levels.
At SIMEC Mining’s Inner Harbour operation at Whyalla port, product spillage generally occurs due to inadequate material containment, coupled with high tonnages.
As a result, SIMEC Mining and BIS Industries, their contractor on site, identified this system as an opportunity to implement serious enhancements. Their goal was to minimise spillage and product wastage, stop damage to the structure, idlers, and belt, reduce the time spent cleaning up, make maintenance on the system safer and easier, and increase overall productivity on site.
