This time, improvements and improvements were made to one of its products, namely the Three Axle Articulated Trucks 725. In carrying out its duties, this truck uses EU Stage IV and Stage V engines equipped with an SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction) system that injects DEF to prevent excessive NOx emissions. DEF is a mixed solution containing 32.5% pure urea plus 67.5% deionized water so that this solution is very suitable for use. In addition, the transmission on the truck model is on par with industry class as it is equipped with APECS (Advanced Productivity Electronic Control Strategy) in reverse transmission at single speed. With this system, acceleration can be increased through smooth gear changes with high productivity.

        As for the use of trucks on the highway that have a different configuration compared to use in other areas, in order for the truck to operate properly on the road, it requires higher engine power and lower powertrain, and is supported by a large capacity torque converter. Even so, the operator does not need to worry because the transmission can be done automatically according to the conditions of the work area regarding changing the gear shift point. In addition, there are other improvements to automatic control that use a proactive application in the form of AATC which can automatically activate the diff anytime and anywhere so as to minimize the occurrence of tire and driveline abuse. In addition, there is also monitoring carried out by ARC so that the level of safety is guaranteed, flexibility to manual control, and adjusts engine speed so that it is not excessive. 

        There is also a new Assisted Hoisting Control system which makes it easier to leverage the dump body. The working principle is that by pressing around, the service brake will automatically activate, then the transmission is switched to neutral, and the body is raised to the engine rpm as needed. So that there is a combination of the hoist and the transmission lever which can create a certain uniqueness coupled with ease of operation according to the operator's experience. Other enhancements are also made to the cab which is not only designed world class, but also designed with wide visibility so that the operator can always work productively for long periods of time. Apart from that, the 725 truck also offers the latest dash style by adding the LED rocker switch feature and the dash style makes it easy for the operator to reach the surrounding controls.

Caterpillar: Three Axle Articulated Trucks 730 EJ


        Caterpillar is a well-known company that has produced a wide range of highly reliable, safe and high productivity machines. One of its products, the Three Axle Articulated Trucks 730 EJ, uses a proven engine in the form of a Cat Tier 4 Final engine, also known as Stage IV. The use of the engine on this truck apparently also involves various EU Stage V engines with electronic components inside. Both machines are excellent, especially in optimizing airflow because each machine implements an innovative air management system that makes it easy to do. In addition, the machine used is also supported by paint dealers because in addition to its lower costs, this tool is able to work optimally even in a long period of time.

        Several machines in operation are likely to produce large or small amounts of NOx emissions. As with this tool, it also produces NOx emissions, so it requires a paint NOx reduction system so as not to cause excessive emissions. The working principle of the system is to direct the exhaust gas that has been captured and cooled to the combustion chamber. In addition, other ways to reduce NOx emissions are also carried out by injecting Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) into the exhaust gas according to the rules of the Selective Catalytic Reduction system. In addition, in an effort to increase the responsiveness of this tool, it offers a sophisticated and durable injector in the form of a MEUI-C injector platform that is able to influence the fuel rate so that it is more precise, produces more precise injection pressure, and is able to control soot. 

        The truck's automatic control is in the form of Advanced Automatic Traction Control (AATC), which ensures smooth and efficient manual operation by reducing tire and driveline wear. When conditions change, the AATC is also able to provide optimal traction by locking between the axles while operating. In addition, in the face of sharp turns, you can release the clutch automatically so as to minimize the occurrence of conflict. There are also various configurations of the brake system based on their respective functions, including the service brake which is activated in neutral so that it functions in the load area properly, then the service brake which is activated by hill assist so that it can assist the operator in dealing with a “roll- back ”, and closes the wet disc brakes for long lasting use of the machine. These improvements make this tool superior in many ways, especially equipped with a world-class cabin design.

Mining Tools Part III

Gold Drum Machine

        Gold drum machines are the best machines that help remove gold from clay piles with high content and cannot be extracted by sluice boxes, gold washer, and ordinary sluices. The working principle of this drum system is to first separate the gold that is blocked by the clay using a cutting knife to break the clay, then direct it to the sluice. The separated gold will then be extracted very efficiently and effectively. Another advantage is that the plaser gold processing system has absolutely no negative effect on the surrounding environment or the health of gold miners and the community, because this system works without using mercury or other harmful chemicals. 

        The features of this drum machine are of course very many, one of which is the hopper feeder feature which functions as a place to enter raw materials. While the working system on this drum machine is something called a shredding system which functions to cut and break hard clay, where the shredding system is located at the front of the round tube. There is also a rotary screen system that is tasked with separating gold and heavy metals from various materials such as stone, earth, clay, and other materials that are not valuable. So that in this segment there are 3 stages, namely separation, then the gold enters the water flow segment, until it is finally captured by the special carpet available. All these stages are of course equipped with full motorization, pumps, tubes, accessories and hoses. So as to ensure smooth operations with a high level of efficiency and accuracy of the maximum amount of gold extraction.

        In general, drum machines used for large-scale gold mining projects require excavators and beko to load large amounts of material into the machine. Whereas the use of a drum machine for a small scale only requires assistance in the form of a bucket and shovel, but it is very helpful for people's mines with manual input. Even though this drum machine is a local product, its quality has met international standards. Equipped with a team and experienced consultants, you can even consult for free. In addition, other services provided are also interesting, namely services for installation, commissioning, and training.
