Equipment Plant Hire

We provide plant hire of the following machines

Front End Loader

Image
A loader is a heavy equipment machine used in construction to move aside or load materials such as asphalt, demolition debris, dirt, snow, feed, gravel, logs, raw minerals, recycled material, rock, sand, woodchips, etc.

Excavator

Image
Excavators are heavy construction equipment consisting of a boom, dipper, bucket and cab on a rotating platform known as the "house". The house sits atop an undercarriage with tracks or wheels. They are a natural progression from the steam shovels and often mistakenly called power shovels.

TLB

Image
Backhoe loaders are very common and can be used for a wide variety of tasks: construction, small demolitions, light transportation of building materials, powering building equipment, digging holes/escavation, landscaping, breaking asphalt and paving roads.

Tipper truck

Image
A dump truck, known also as a dumper truck or tipper truck is used for transporting loose material (such as sand, gravel, or demolition waste) for construction. A typical dump truck is equipped with an open-box bed, which is hinged at the rear and equipped with hydraulic rams to lift the front, allowing the material in the bed to be deposited ("dumped") on the ground behind the truck at the site

Conveyor Belts

Image
When this company was formed it was with the idea of construction below or underground. In late 2015 and owing to our professional reputation of outstanding work, enquiries from mining companies began to flow in not only on matters around construction but on whether or not underground work pertaining to splicing, conveyor belt supply and belt maintenance; we were expert.

We began by and largely to perform these functions using largely our own workforce. Emanating directly from this, a need for a profile accurately and reflecting work we now perform.

CONVEYOR BELTS.

Is defined as a continuous moving band of fabric, rubber, or metal used for moving objects from one place to another. While there are at least three different kinds of conveyor systems namely, rubber, PVC and steel and while Izikhathi Zokwenza can supply and maintain all should the need arise, for the purpose of this profile and work we are now experts; we shall focus only on the rubber conveyor system. The belt consists of one or more layers of material. Many belts in general material handling have two layers. An under layer of material to provide linear strength and shape called a carcass and an over layer called the cover. The carcass is often a woven fabric having a warp & weft. The most common carcass materials are polyester, nylon and cotton. The cover is often various rubber or plastic compounds specified by use of the belt. Covers can be made from more exotic materials for unusual applications such as silicone for heat or gum rubber when traction is essential.
Because safety is off paramount importance the belts Izikhathi Zokwenza supply, designed for use within underground mines are fire resistant and approved and accredited to the appropriate national and international standard. We keep a close relationship with both are clients and manufacturers to ascertain this critical component of Conveyor Belt supply.

Our belts are of the highest quality mining conveyor belts that have outstanding resistance to both abrasion and cutting and designed for use in every phase of the production process – from the mine face and the transportation to the processing location through to the final mixing, blending and stocking. We provide belting with high resistance to the heavy impact, ripping and tearing caused during handling at the primary stages of production and high abrasion resistance to be able to handle several thousand tons per hour of fast-moving fines and yet still deliver the best cost per ton performance.

Being a wholly black owned company with a Triple-A BEE score, based in Mpumalanga primarily within the areas of Secunda, Evander, Kinross we can and we hope we soon shall be able to, as a company, stretch ourselves to reach places within the outskirts. Plans are afoot to present ourselves as Belt Supplier and Belt Maintenance of choice for companies in Ermelo, Bethal, Standerton, Witbank and many other mining areas where companies exist working in the environment seeking the services we provide.

Belt Maintenance & Splicing

Belt Maintenance
Izikhathi Supplies mechanical belt fasteners, belt cleaning products and tools for the mining industry. Our medium to long—term goal is to be exclusive in maximising belt conveyor productivity and its with products that set the industry's highest standards for design, ease of installation, and reliability. Even the most routine belt maintenance carries the risk of serious injury for mine workers. For this reason only specific and exclusive line of tools with built-in safety features to protect against such injuries are used. Cleaning is essential to ensuring your beltline runs smoothly. Over time carryback can create serious problems for your conveyor system, including mistracking, accelerated belt wear, and the seizing of return idlers. The cost impact of such errors can be astronomical. Izikhathi Zokwenza have sourced out vast variety of belt cleaning systems that can remove even the toughest, stickiest material. Our systems are specially designed to minimize belt wear and interface seamlessly with mechanical fasteners. We pride ourselves at being amongst the few wholly black owned companies able to provide such expert underground skill.

Splicing
As noun and verb, splice refers to the overlapping or interweaving of two ends of something to create the strongest possible attachment. The earliest records of the word splice are from the early 16th century, when it was borrowed from the Middle Dutch verb splissen, used by sailors for joining ropes end to end by interweaving their strands. In 1912, the infant motion-picture industry took over the word splice to refer to the cutting and joining of film in the editing process. In 1975, scientists found they could alter genes by cutting and adding chunks of DNA, creating the science of gene splicing.

Vulcanization Process

Image
A critical are of importance on any conveyor system is the splice. And in most coal and gold mining applications, there are two preferred methods: mechanical splicing, which joins belt ends by metal hinges or plates; and vulcanized splicing which joins belt ends through heat and/or chemicals. Understanding the pros and cons of each splicing method is extremely important wen making an educated decision on which splicing method
to use. What are the environmental factors that might affect the splice? Are workers up agaist time constraints? Whare the costs associated with long conveyor timelines? No person understanding the process of splicing des not understand these methods and does not fully appreciate the cost implications of lack of understanding.

Vulcanization Process

Vulcanisation is an involved procedure that, if done correctly by an expert, can offer a smooth splice with minimal risk of snagging, tearing and other harmful wear to the belt. There are several different types of vulcanised splices, including stepped Splices, finger splices and overlap splices, and two types of vulcanising processes, hot and cold. Each process requires unique tools and an intimate knowledge of the rubber bonding process. For both hot and cold vulcanisation, the belt must be assembled and each belt end prepared according to that particular belt’s splicing recommendation. Proper belt preparation is crucial to ensure that the finished splice will hold and perform to its published tensile ratings. With hot vulcanisation, splices are heated and cured under pressure with a vulcanising press. This process takes several hours. If a belt is retensioned and used before the splice is bonded and completely cooled, the splice will be ineffective and may come apart completely, causing additional downtime. Cold vulcanisation does not employ a vulcanising press, but rather uses a bonding agent that causes a chemical reaction to splice the
two belt ends together. When vulcanising, several factors must be taken into account to ensure a high-quality splice. Firstly, a vulcanized splice must be performed by an expert who is skilled and trained for the procedure and who has a thorough knowledge of solvents, bonding materials and other cover and fill materials. Secondly, the process requires a specific emperature, compression and dwell time of the equipment, in addition to a virtually moisture free work area. Thirdly, some types of belts may not allow for vulcanisation at all. If a belt is old, dirty or unevenly worn, vulcanisation is not a good option, because it will not always cure evenly, which can result in a weaker splice. The entire process for the vulcanized splicing of a 24 inch belt will take about 6 – 11 hours, depending on working conditions.

Wider belts may take longer. And because vulcanisation often requires time for a specialized vulcanising crew and equipment to be brought onsite, mining operations can be shut down for half a day or more. Ultimately, vulcanisation may cost thousands of dollars per splice, considering material and labour – and that is before considering the cost of downtime required to make the splice. To summarise, use vulcanized splicing in the following circumstances: The clean belt is clean and free of contaminating agents, such as oil, sand and material fines. The belt is compatible with the adhesive of choice. The belt is new or without excessive wear. The procedure is performed by a trusted, certified vulcaniser. The work environment is at an optimal temperature and moisture level. There is easy access to the area that needs splicing and plenty of room to work.

Mechanical fasteners

Image
An alternative: mechanical fasteners

The speed and simplicity of mechanical splice installation represents major advantages over the vulcanization process. Depending on belt width and thickness, most mechanical splices can be finished in less than one hour and are installed by an in house crew with portable, easy-to-use installation tools. In the event that an unexpected splice is required, it is thus not necessary to wait for professional assistance. Additionally, mechanical splices can be made in restrictive environments, with no special regard for space, temperature, moisture or contaminants.

Mechanical splicing also offers reduced belt waste and visibility of splice condition, both of which can significantly reduce costs. Because vulcanised splices often require consumption from 8 to 10 ft of belt length, conveyers may not have enough ‘take up’ if more than one splice is necessary over time. And, because a mechanical splice is visible, wear and deterioration is visibly apparent and can be taken care of before a complete belt failure. Vulcanised splices, in contrast, typically deteriorate from the inside out due to poor adhesion. The first sign of wear comes too late for any preventive measure, resulting in longer downtime.

Mechanical splicing and mining applications

As with vulcanisation, there are several types of mechanical fasteners, each created for use with different belt widths, lengths, thicknesses, speeds, tensions and cleaners. Identifying the correct fastener for the application is essential to ensuring maximum splice life and performance. Mechanical fasteners are available in two types – hinged and solid plate – and with a variety of attachment methods, including rivets, bolts and staples.
Mechanical fasteners are installed quickly and easily, onsite, with in house maintenance crews, usually in less than 60 minutes. The mechanical splice installation tools are easily transported to the job site and offer splice installers versatility in installation methods. Depending on the mine’s available power source, mechanically attached rivet hinged splices can be installed with as little as a basic installation tool and hammer, or with a modified installation tool and choice of electric, air or powder actuated power source. Mechanical fasteners can also be countersunk during the installation process so that the fastener plates are flush with the belt’s cover, which eliminates interference with tight-fitting scrapers, skirtboards, and other conveyor components. Countersinking also strengthens the fastener-to-belt attachment by positioning the plates closer to the belt’s load bearing carcass fibers. The belt strength remains intact as only a portion of the top cover material is removed, while the belt’s vital carcass fabric is left intact. Besides virtually eliminating fastener rip-outs, rivet hinged splicing cuts downtime by giving maintenance crews more freedom in deciding when to replace a splice. Any splice damage or wear and tear is very visible on a mechanical splice and operators can finish a shift even with a few plates missing and not worry about belt failure.

Conveyor belt and belt splice damage will always be a fact of life in most material-handling applications. Consequently, operations and maintenance personnel should have a thorough understanding of the available splicing and repair alternatives and how each method can affect the productivity and cost-effectiveness of operations. New designs, materials, and processes are making mechanical splicing better than ever and incorporating mechanical belt fasteners into a splicing routine can provide numerous benefits for output and bottom line. In most applications, especially coal mining, mechanical splices offer the flexibility
