Blast hole drill rigs are used to drill Blast holes into high benches in large quarries and open pit mines. They are designed for very high production rates, and as such are often powered by large diesel engines whose exhaust systems can become dangerously hot. Kalb Corporation was approached by a mining OEM to remedy this situation by providing a durable exhaust insulation system for their client’s Blast hole rigs. After installation and testing of the HeatBlocker system, Kalb’s customer now includes HeatBlocker Exhaust Insulation on its entire line of Blast hole drills.
Protect your crews from the serious injuries that can occur should they bump into a red hot exhaust system while extending the life of your diesel engines and components by contacting Kalb Corporation.
