Solution enhances use rates for mine fleet
Published: 01 Jun 18
A total fuel-filtration solution from power and engine multinational Cummins’ Fleetguard has ensured that a haul-truck fleet at a large copper mine in Zambia has achieved use rates of between 85% and 90%, after previously experiencing operational difficulties relating to substandard fuel qualities, which had reduced the fleet’s run-time capacity to 65%. “Since the solution was implemented in June 2017, the mine’s downtime has reduced significantly, as injector and fuel-pump failures were substantially less. This has provided for longer service intervals on the haul trucks, increased oil lifespan, and improved equipment availability, which has equated to significant improvement in production volumes at the mine, while generating substantial savings and reducing the total cost of ownership,” Cummins Filtration Africa mining manager Tinus Naude indicates.
