The Molycop range of SAG grinding balls is prepared for impact. Through an innovative manufacturing process we’ve produced a ball with greater impact resistance and reduced spalling compared to the standard SAG ball, ready to perform in the highest impact SAG milling environments.
SIZE: SAG milling grinding media are available in sizes from 4.0” to 6.5” or 105 mm to 160 mm.
CHEMISTRY: The chemistry of the balls is controlled via a robust internal quality system with our bar suppliers to optimize physical properties.
HARDNESS: Hardness of the balls is altered using carefully selected heat treatment variables specifically designed for each particular alloy.
DENSITY: The theoretical apparent packing density of the balls in a ball charge is 282 lbs/cu-ft or 4,520 kg/m3.
Molycop manufacturers a range of mill liner bolts and specialised fasteners for the mining industry. Built strong from carbon alloy and stainless steel, we customize our bolts to satisfy customer requirements. Our machining, heat treatment and technical capabilities complement the forge operation to deliver technical products of the highest integrity.
All head shapes, lengths, and diameters of forged products are catered for and customised for any requirement. Specific design, tension, and optimal head seating are critical components to reduce mill shut down risk.
Our product line includes: Oval head liner bolts, Square head liner bolts, Hex head liner bolts and Tee head liner bolts
Twistlock Pins are manufactured with the finest of detail and provide complete material composition certainty. The nature of the lifting role of twist lock pins, within shipping containers and mobile plant lifting equipment, commands the highest of structural integrity to comply with associated standards.
Our patented Easy-Out Bolts are designed to reduce the potential for personal injury, damage to equipment and shorten liner change-out times.
These Easy-Out Bolts design consists of a standard liner bolt which has been modified to be used in conjunction with a specially designed moil fitted to any standard hydraulic or pneumatic hammers. Both the Easy-Out Bolts and moil are custom manufactured and supplied by Molycop to suit specific customer requirements.
After removing the nut, the moil is inserted into the bolt end. Without the need to remove recessed or seal washers the bolt can be driven out of the liner and completely clear of the mill shell in one movement. Recent trials at a large copper concentrator have shown that bolt removal time was halved by using Easy-Out Bolts. The positive location between the moil, or drift, and the bolt eliminates the risk of mill damage due to misalignment of hydraulic hammer moils or sledgehammer damage around bolt holes. The use of Easy-Out Bolts also improves safety by removing the need for a man between the hammer and the mill.
