Due to increased risks that sometimes occur during mining operations because of environmental and other adverse conditions, problems may come up such as frozen load caused by extremely cold weather. This can lead to damages in mining technologies and even have fatal repercussions for the people working in the projects. OEM solutions that are usually proposed to combat this problem are usually effective but compromise payload capacity and performance.

The Hercules heated body offers a solution that addresses both safety and capacity challenges. Through exhaust gases, it combats freezing conditions by generating heat evenly and competently, ensuring greater heat transfer throughout the whole equipment more effectively than an OEM truck body.

The design of the Hercules heated body is structured on the basis of rigorous flow modelling through Schlam’s computational fluid dynamics software. Benefits of the Hercules heated body include:

  • Decreases frozen load problems
  • Increases payload capacity by up to 10%
  • Reduces fuel emissions so they are more environmentally friendly
  • Lightweight and strong
  • Retention capabilities that lower load waste
  • Robust design and modular structure
  • Top-quality performance
  • Wear-resistant and durable even in the most adverse conditions
