O-ZONE Liner Lifting Tools were developed with insights won from Stephen Kittel’s Time and Motion Studies. RME were determined to identify the best method of safely and quickly securing worn liners so that they could be moved with the Mill Relining Machine or Mill Liner Handler during ‘Mucking Out’. Prior to the invention of the O-ZONE Liner Lifting Tools, crowbars and slings made of a variety of materials were used, and many reline operators suffered crush injuries as a result.
Saving one minute per liner while simultaneously improving safety, the O-ZONE range of Liner Lifting Tools consists of:
- O-ZONE Scissors
- O-ZONE Grips
- O-ZONE Hooks
In a 300 liner ball mill reline, the inclusion of O-ZONE Liner Lifting Tools saved another five hours downtime.
