Tyre protection chains for open-pit mining vehicles
Large-scale open-pit mining operations, owned by renowned international companies, are choosing pewag as their reliable and innovative partner for the protection of their tyres.
From low surface tunnelling to deepest level mining at 4,785m, pewag tyre protection chains keep underground operations going. pewag chains are used with a wide range of highly specialised equipment like loaders, shuttle cars, scoops and others, for both protection and traction.
Tyre chains for quarrying, traction, slag and scrap
Quarries are the largest group of users exploiting all kind of materials, from aggregates to ornamental rock. Their very specific and numerous requirements are fully covered by pewag’s wide range of chain solutions.
Where slag and scrap are concerned, very high temperatures, liquid steel slag, large and solid scrap piece and concrete driveways mean tough working conditions. pewag’s answer to this is reinforced, highly wear-resistant and customised tyre chain designs.
pewag chains ensure that mining operations keep on rolling. A great diversity of machines can be chained such as loaders, dozers, graders, dump and service trucks. Tyre chains are also available for seasonal use on ice and snow as well as for continuous use on slippery and muddy ground.
