Camso, formerly Camoplast Solideal, has unveiled its most advanced underground mining tire for load haul dump (LHD) equipment, the MST 776.
The company says the Camso MST 776 provides extreme hard surface durability for LHD machines
working in the toughest underground mining applications.
“Knowing how uptime is crucial in underground mining, the new Camso MST 776 was engineered to maximize tread life while protecting it from puncture,” says Mike Dembe, Camso’s product management director for North America and Latin America.
With its smooth, deep L5 tread pattern, the MST 776 provides wearable tread volume, durability and puncture resistance for underground equipment. The amplified contact surface also improves traction and minimizes tire slippage, Camso says.
The MST 776 is equipped with a premium rubber compound which provides resistance against tread and sidewall wear and cuts, and reduces carcass heat build-up. An impact guard sidewall design deflects debris for better sidewall protection while reducing stress cracking; and the tire’s rim guard protector shields the wheel for extended life and constant inflation.
“The MST 776 is all about superior performance,” says Dembe, “and customers will see as it outperforms the competition in terms of tire life and heat resistance.”
Camso says tests performed in controlled conditions show the MST 776 has 15% better life and 2% better heat resistance than the industry benchmark. For customers that performance means greater productivity, and ultimately, lower operating costs.
