Hawiflex - Crushed stone case study

Hawiflex® Polyurethane

The Hawiflex® effect

"The introduction of Hawiflex® to the plant has been a real success. Hawiflex® is lightweight and easy to handle, so it was quick and simple to install. It lasts so much longer than the belting we used to use, which has led to a big reduction in our overall maintenance cost.”

♦ The Challenge
A primary screen handling 600 tonnes of 20-50mm crushed rock per day at a busy quarry required routine monthly maintenance to replace the old conveyor belt used as a wear liner. Although using the old belting appeared to be a low-cost option, regular replacement meant maintenance costs were high.
♦ Our Solution
Hawiflex® polyurethane sheet - 10mm thick
♦ Improvement
Previous solution:         Replaced once a month
                                         2-3 hours downtime per replacement
Hawiflex® PU:               22 months, still operational, minimal wear
♦ Key Features
High elasticity provides abrasion and impact resistance
UV and weather resistant formulation
♦ Benefits
Productivity - fast, predictable material feed
Efficiency - no production interruptions
Maintenance - regular liner replacement avoided
Safety - far less working at height, noise reduction
User friendly - extremely flexibile, easy to cut, form and fix
