A new 236-page manual to help improve efficiency in the mining, mineral processing and quarrying sector has been launched by WS Tyler. ‘The Rock Book’ is modelled on a renowned industry manual, as an on-the-job reference tool detailing latest technologies, definitions, general screening information and specification tables.
“The Rock Book is part of our ongoing effort to be a more valuable partner to our customers, and to provide useful information to anyone engaged in the mining, aggregate and industrial mineral industries,” says WS Tyler president Florian Festge.
“We were inspired to create this new book because, decades after it was introduced, we still receive phone calls and emails asking for our classic reference manual, The Tyler Catalog 74. The Rock Book raises the bar and is packed with information to help the reader make effective decisions. It just makes sense to have The Rock Book at your mine or quarry,” he says.
The book cites detailed information about the various wire meshes used in screening to open area calculations and the most advanced technologies used in modern processing. Hailed as an ‘encyclopaedia of screening’, it can be a useful reference tool for novice employees on the basics of screening to skilled engineers requiring screen media and vibrating screen components and accessories for specific application challenges.
Full-colour images, detailed 3-D schematic drawings and specific descriptions are included throughout the book. The Screens, Components and Equipment sections of The Rock Book offer effective technologies to increase product quality and plant efficiency. With this information in hand, processing plants will be able to better customize the blend of screen media, processing equipment, components and accessories.
The Services and Resources sections address vibration analysis, installation and maintenance, aggregate specifications, wire alloy information and types of crimps and openings.
WS Tyler is a member of the German-based Haver & Tyler Processing Technology Alliance, and a leading manufacturer, systems provider and specialist in the screening, washing and pelletizing industry. Free copies of The Rock Book can be obtained by visiting the company’s website.
