After removing both discharge and feed ends access was then provided to remove the fixings using burning gear and remove the old lining. This lining was then removed manually and repairs by welding torch were then made to badly worn areas, to provide the enginee with a clean surface to drill and fix to. M18 pilot holes were then drilled to accommodate the M16 t-bolts; in all 144 t-bolts were used!
Both the 25mm thick shell including the 100mm x 100mm lifter bars were all re-lined in Linard-60. Both ends were also re-lined using 30mm steel back rubber with the discharge end having a 75mm lip on the segments to protect the discharge cone. These were then held in place by also using 100 x 100mm lifter bars.
The discharge cone was re-lined utilising H.D.S 70 rubber and held in position with Linard 75 x 75mm lifter bars. A splash ring was also fitted to prevent spillage from the feed end and some protection on top of the feed chute inside the barrel was also added.
On completion of all the lining the two ends were bolted onto the barrel which was then craned back into its working position. All guards were then replaced and a check made to ensure all fixings are clear and away from both guide wheels and tyre rings.
A short period of commissioning was then undertaken before handing the plant back to C & G Concrete. The whole project took three engineers just three days to take down the barrel and complete the lining and a further morning to replace back into its location.
