Kits for your Mining Equipment

At CEP we know that every repair or maintenance job on a machine needs to be cost effective.  We also know that you need a supplier that have your best interest at heart.  At CEP, we source parts for our kits from the best manufacturers in the industry. The kits offer the same material, grade, and finish as OEM, for proper fit and function.  With over 40 years’ experience in the mining industry, we know who’s the best manufacturers to partner with.

Our manufacturers at World Gasket offer asbestos-free paper to produce flat gaskets, changing the raw material and the physical-mechanical characteristics of the product. In addition to the raw material so far adopted, they introduced TORANIT 410: a material made up of cellulose fibres and mineral fillers bonded with NBR latex, particularly recommended for application in contact with oils.

The initial targets were the following:

Our solutions:

  • To improve the resistance to compressibility and the sealing properties in contact with oil, fuel and water.
  • To change from a low density to a medium density material.
  • To improve the surface material of the asbestos-free paper.

A. The new material has improved in terms of resistance to compressibility, intensifying the sealing both at low and high pressures. It shows a better adaptability to the wear or irregular housing, in addition to a good flexibility that determines a wide range of potential usages and suitability in the application.

B. The new material is characterised by a higher density that warranties an improvement in a minimal variation of volume in water, oil and fuels. For that reason, it is used in automotive applications, earth moving machines, small engines, sea engines, and compressors.

C. The surface of the new product is treated with a coating system. That treatment can improve the resistance to water, mineral oils and fuels; moreover, it improves the anti-sticking property in terms of performance and repeatability.
