  5. Case Study: Underground Jumbos

Case Study: Underground Jumbos

Client Profile: A representation of a large mining contractor servicing the Metropolitan & Regional area across Western Australia

The Problem: Frequent repair of jumbo cylinders due to impact damage & corrosion caused by high salinity.

The Goal: Extend service life to ensure downtime & maintenance is kept to a minimum.

The Solution: Callcott & Downey discussed the specific issues faced with the client, agreeing to apply one of their trusted modifications to the offending cylinder, working together to test the results on site.

The Result: The client reported that the cylinder now lasts twice as long as previous cylinders, resulting in savings and increased productivity. Callcott & Downey have since helped this client apply similar modifications to various components including wear plates, pins, bushes and more.
