Haul Trucks are essential to the mining industry, as are the women and men who operate these vehicles on a daily basis. Can Rubber Liners improve driver well-being by absorbing impact and reducing noise?
Whole body vibration occurs when a driver operates a haul truck. Rubber liners absorb the impact from loading material into the bed significantly better than steel liners. The driver will experience reduced shock and vibration, thus increasing their well-being.
Rubber Liners quickly and quietly absorb the impact from falling material.
Operators commonly experience jolting and jarring while driving Haul Trucks.
An eight-hour time-weighted average of 85 decibels is the maximum level of noise exposure allowed by OSHA. Valley Rubber tested the impact of rock on a steel plate and found a peak of 105 decibels. When testing the impact on a 6” rubber liner, the peak was only 68 decibels.
