Inflatable Liners for Sticky Ore

At Imatech, we understand the importance of equipment availability for bulk material handling. Our inflatable liners help you avoid increased maintenance and the expensive down-time associated with material build-up in chutes.

DynaVibe

Dynamically controllable moly-rubber inflatable liners

Imatech’s DynaVibe system is an innovative solution for freeing material build-up in problematic areas of mineral processing plants. Comprising of high-tensile-strength moly-rubber, this solution is custom designed for each individual application, taking into account material type and size, drop height, angle of impact, belt speed and tonnage rates.

Material build-up is an increasing problem across the mineral processing industry, as mining operations dig deeper into the water table in search of high-grade ore. The root cause of many material handling issues – including loss of production and belt tracking – can be traced back to material build-up.

DynaVibe wear liners are made from wear-resistant high-tensile-rubber of varying thickness, depending on the application. The rubber contains a molybdenum disulfide compound that reduces surface friction on the wear liners and aids in the freeing of build-up. The rubber is vulcanised to a mild-steel backing plate around the perimeter of the wear liner only. Air is pumped through ports in the backing wear plate, expanding the entire thickness of the rubber.

The expansion and stretching of the rubber breaks the surface tension of the build-up – causing it to break free from the wear liners, and eliminating the need for hosing to free the built-up material.

VibraCube

Dynamically controllable ceramic reinforced inflatable liners

Imatech’s VibraCube system is an innovative solution for freeing material build-up in areas of mineral processing plants where impact and resistance to abrasion also need to be considered. Comprising of high-tensile-strength rubber and reinforced with ceramic cubes, the product is essentially a hybrid inflating CorroCube wear liner.

Material build-up is an increasing problem across the mineral processing industry, as mining operations dig deeper into the water table in search of high-grade ore. The root cause of many material handling issues – including loss of production and belt tracking – can be traced back to material build-up.

Custom designed for each individual application, VibraCube is the ideal solution for keeping wet and sticky material moving – taking into account, material type and size, drop height, angle of impact, belt speed and tonnage rates.
