Gaining an edge in efficient performance can only occur when plant maintenance is proactive – not reactive. The latter is merely a fix-it-after-it’s-broken mentality. A proactive approach generates an ongoing preventive and predictive maintenance strategy that ensures increased uptime and throughput, maximum equipment wear life, higher quality products, and improved safety.
When talking about aggregate, the term “clean” is used to refer to material that is free of dirt, clay or organic material. These days (at least in British Columbia), the definition of clean can be extended to include material that does not generate acid or leach metals when exposed to rainfall.
Finding efficiencies throughout the quarry is paramount for competing in today’s Canadian aggregates market.
