In addition to the above, the highway’s section acquired a QI442HS impactor to provide primary and secondary crushing and screening in one unit. The features include a new rotor position and locking device, innovative hammer locking wedges for quicker removal and fitting, as well as a new wedge removal tool to provide safer installation and removal. This means that it is also able to deliver a wide range of high reduction ratios, superb product shape and outstanding uptime which are essential to the requirements of the island’s authority.
Tough and isolated working conditions
“Service and support have been excellent. Queries are always answered immediately. We also had good support and training from two Sandvik engineers during the commissioning process. This covered a wide range of maintenance and operative information.” says Marc, who further explains why Sandvik’s support is so essential: “There are 24 employees on site consisting of operators, labourers, shotfirers, drillers, a laboratory technician, two foremen and two managers. This number of employees is required as everything has to be done on site; there is no opportunity to use contract shotfirers and drillers. They must all be trained internally.”
Further enhancing performance, all the supplied equipment comes with Sandvik’s My Fleet remote monitoring system. My Fleet telematics helps customers know exactly how their machines are being utilized and helps to facilitate accurate production forecasting. Operators can be reassured that Sandvik’s My Fleet system will provide accurate data to quantify the most efficient use of their machine. As a company devoted to setting the industry standard, Sandvik engineer mobile machinery so customers have peace of mind they are gaining maximum machine uptime and return on for their investment.
The Sandvik mobile crushing and screening equipment has now been operational since the beginning of 2020. Despite the hostile operating environment, it has consistently proved itself in one of the harshest and most isolated arenas in the world. Due to the robust and efficient design of the equipment and the excellent aftermarket support provided, Pony’s Pass quarry is now set to gear up to producing the extra aggregates the islands require. It faces the future with confidence that its new crushing and screening train is tough enough, reliable enough and productive enough. They are also confident that Sandvik Mobiles can offer expert professional service and aftermarket support if any challenges arise along the way.
