At our Unmissable Webinar series, 'The Knock-in Effect', RME presented commercial outcomes that can be achieved from the new THUNDERBOLT MAGNUM Hammer range. Our Engineers shared the results of a MILL RELINE DIRECTOR (MRD) study undertaken by RME, which investigated the impact of the THUNDERBOLT MAGNUM Recoilless Hammers’ increased strike energy and firing rate on the knock-in phase during worn liner removal.
To underpin the webinar series, RME Engineers produced a 10-page whitepaper which summarises the results from the MRD study including the potential to achieve significant annual reline time reductions of up to 44 hours* or more through optimal use and configuration of THUNDERBOLT MAGNUM Hammers.
This whitepaper addresses:
- The 'Knock-in Effect' highlighting optimal Hammer configurations relevant to different mill sizes and types
- Mill scenario modelling with benefits defined for high wear and full scope relines of mid and large mills
- Modelling outcomes for typical and difficult reline conditions on one or both sides of the mill
