JULY 2019 • E&MJ 59 www.e-mj.com EQUIPMENT GALLERY A longer spiral helps the process. It increases the residence time, giving the particles suffi cient time to separate, the company reported. www.multotec.com Tires for Dumpers Balkrishna Industries Ltd. launched the 12.00 R 24-sized EARTHMAX SR 423 for tipper trucks and dumpers. The line is also available in sizes 10.00 R 20 and 11.00 R 20. The tread pattern and non-directional lugs provide optimal trac- tion, the company reported. The shoulder minimizes wear or damage. The all-steel casing offers re- sistance and dura- bility for extended life. With a bead for heavy-duty ser- vice applications, the tire can handle increased load ca- pacity, the compa- ny reported. www.bkt-tires.com Alertness Detector Catches Microsleep Hexagon AB introduced HxGN MineProtect Operator Alertness System Light Vehicle (OAS-LV), described as a fatigue and dis- traction-detection unit that continuously monitors operator alertness inside the cab of light vehicles, buses and semi-trucks. OAS-LV is based on the proven technol- ogy used in HxGN MineProtect Operator Alertness System Heavy Vehicle (OAS-HV), which protects operators of haul trucks. Easy to install, it scans the operator's face to detect any sign of fatigue or distraction, such as a microsleep. A machine-learn- ing algorithm leverages this facial-feature analysis data to determine whether or not an alert should be triggered. OAS-LV works in both light and dark conditions, and through prescription glasses and/or sunglasses. It is always connected, and data from the vehicle may be transmitted to the cloud or an on-site monitoring center. This enables real-time notifi cations for supervisors and control- lers to apply intervention protocol or con- duct forensic analytics. www.hexagon.com App for Blasting MAXAM released X-BLASTERGUIDE, a mobile application designed to help fi eld engineers and shotfi rers. The app allows fast and easy access to blast- ing parameter calculations, as well as useful reference data, MAXAM product information, and their user guides, the company reported. The guide has safety features for load- ing and blasting. It includes a risk assess- Mining Contractors and Engineers AFRICA | ASIA | AUSTRALIA | EUROPE NORTH AMERICA | SOUTH AMERICA • Shaft Sinking • Mine Development • Contract Mining • Raiseboring • Raise Mining • Underground Construction • Engineering & Technical Services • Specialty Services EXPERIENCE Providing full service mining solutions and innovation around the world for over 55 years. redpathmining.com Consider it done – safely.
