Mining

miningFabreeka padswashers and bushings have long been used to eliminate impact shock and vibration in a wide variety of mining operations including draglines/shovels, mine cars, crushers, chutes/hoppers, grizzlies, rock breakers, feeders, screens, pulverizers and smelting operations.

In these applications where foundations and structures are broken or damaged due to large impacts, Fabreeka pads are used to protect and prolong equipment use. Fabreeka pad material is also used to improve the service life of the upper and lower rails on draglines and shovels by reducing the high roller load stress.

The types of mines in which Fabreeka material has been used include aluminum, copper, iron, precious metals (gold, silver), lime, phosphate, asbestos, uranium, salts, nitrate, gems, lithium, beryllium.
