LKAB Narvik, Norway

The composite rollers on the ship loader in Narvik (LKAB) did very well in a test after 6 years operation.

130 carrying rollers in composite have been used on the ship loader at LKAB's site in Narvik since December 2006. These rollers are exposed to very tough climatic conditions with dust, salt, icing and frost.

Very few replacements of composite rollers have been documented compared with the number of replaced steel rollers in the period from 2006 - 2008.

130 composite rollers in use: 1 replacement

915 steel rollers in use: 462 replacements

 

The good result led to a 3 year contract with LKAB for the delivery of carrying rollers.
