The Twistlok
pro
range features a number of
developments that offer customers a real
advantage and ultimately provide an
opportunity for them to lower their Total Cost
of Ownership (TCO).
Points
Twistlok
pro
points are available in a variety of
styles to suit various applications and can be
customised to suit site specific requirements.
They are interchangeable with Bradken’s
existing T690 – T810 adapter range as well as
competitor’s products of the same size with a
helix style nose.
Improved point styles also provide increased
wear life for Twistlok
pro
points.
Hammer Free Locking Pin
The original Twistlok range required the use of
hammers in the installation and removal of the
locking pins. Bradken’s hammer free Twistlok
pro
locking pin provides improved safety, with only
a 17mm allen key or ratchet setup required to
install and remove the pin.
The pins are also reusable further reducing
equipment running costs.
Wear Caps
Twistlok
pro
adapters feature common wearcaps
that can be positioned along the top and
bottom legs of the adapter in a ‘stackable’
design allowing them to be interchanged from
front to back or top to bottom.
The ability to reposition the wearcaps not only
ensures prolonged wear life of the adapter but
also maximises the wear life of the wearcaps.
Protected Lifting Point
The Twistlok
pro
T810 adapter range features a
protected lifting lug beneath the top leg
wearcaps providing a safe and time effective
means of adapter removal.
Cast-on lifting lugs typically wear off whilst in
service. Having a RUD* lifting point concealed
beneath the wear caps ultimately reduces
maintenance downtime and associated costs.
This innovation is unique to Bradken’s
Twistlok
pro
range.
Twistlok
pro
was trialled at several mine sites
across Australia throughout 2013. Customers
participating in the product trials were
particularly pleased with the ease and safety of
point installation, the increased point wear life
and point retention and the hammer free
locking system.
A number of product sales have been recorded
to date, with the first full fitment of Twistlok
pro
points going into service at a Hunter Valley
(New South Wales, Australia) mine site in
January 2014.
