RUSSELL Feed Chute Transporters (FCTs) and RUSSELL High Pressure Grinding Rolls (HPGRs) ensure reliable and efficient onsite transport, which is vital for plant inspections, maintenance and safety.
Rapid extraction, transportation and replacement of feed chutes is vital for mill inspections, maintenance and fast relining. It is the first major activity once the mill is shut down and allows access inside the mill. As a result of constant vibration and harsh conditions inherent in plant settings, as the feed chute ages, the harder it can be to remove. This is exacerbated with the trend towards bigger chutes.
Built to work over the long haul, RUSSELL FCTs can be relied upon to take the load off – whether it’s removing a fully-choked feed chute or protecting plant floor structural integrity. They are robust, reliable and safe, and deliver outstanding maneuverability.
