        Concrete Plant Relies on Abrasion-Resistant Mining Cable

        CUSTOMER PROBLEM

        One of North America’s leading aggregate producers responsible for providing residential (underground-to-roof) solutions was experiencing routine portable cord failures on their vibrator motors due to abrasion. Abrasion is a common cause for cable failure in the mining industry, and every unforeseen failure resulted in unplanned downtime and a shift in priorities — a big frustration for the Texas concrete and precast plant. 

        Industrial vibrator motors are an important part of the aggregation process because they are responsible for regulating the consistency of mortars to provide proper pours. Due to the rugged environment that was present, this customer was replacing cable every two months across 40 units, which was no small task and negatively impacted their budget.

        TPC SOLUTION

        As leading mining cable manufacturers, our local field specialist carefully assessed the application and recommended our rugged Super-Trex® 14/4 portable cord option — a product line that is well known for offering excellent resistance against impact, cutting, abrasion, oils, and most chemicals in harsh environments. 

        Considering the rough outdoor landscape of the plant, the customer knew the all-weather flexibility of our security yellow TSE jacket would be the right fit for this plant. Plus, this abrasion-resistant cable is rated for extra-hard usage and MSHA-approved!

        After sampling the product on a handful of their industrial vibrator motors, the customer had complete trust in our product and decided to install TPC products across their entire motor fleet.

        CUSTOMER’S RESULT

        By switching to a longer-lasting mining cable solution, this customer went from replacing cable six times over the course of 12 months, to once. That means giving back a total of $11,674 in product and labor costs and 50 production hours. Talk about maximizing productivity!
