Automated external path surface grinder for an asphalt plant dryer
ARTICLE
DESCRIPTION

A ‘safer by design’ working group at Midland Quarry Product’s Griff quarry and asphalt plant have developed a remote grinding ring attachment to safely remove flat spots from the roller path rings whilst the dryer is rotating. The system can be easily fitted onto all asphalt plants and enables the fitter to control an angle grinder from outside the guarding area.

BENEFITS

• Removal of ‘live work‘ risk to team members
• Reduced wear to drum alignment rollers once the path rings have been ground down
• Reduced noise and vibration on the asphalt drum and consequent benefits to other parts of the plant.
