Mining tyres face unique conditions and require specialised services that other tyres used either commercially or in civil engineering do not need. Therefore, when your mining tyres need repair or service, you need professionals you can trust. At TyreDoctor, we have both supplied and serviced mining tyres throughout Wollongong and Eastern Australia for the past 32 years and can help ensure that your operations continue to run smoothly.
What Makes Mining So Tough on Tyres
While on-road truck tyres, such as those found on big rigs or heavy machinery intended for driving on roads, are designed for asphalt surfaces and therefore have the same general uses, this is not the case with OTR (off-the-road) tyres. Some OTR tyres must be able to withstand extreme temperature and terrain or must retain traction in slick or muddy surfaces. All these aspects are often true when dealing with the unique conditions mining tyres often face underground and in quarries. Therefore, it is vital that OTR mining tyres be made to endure a wide variety of environments and applications—and equally important that they are maintained in good working condition.
Over time, it is almost a given that mining tyres will wear down and require replacement or servicing. Hot-vulcanising tyre repairs are one way you can salvage a punctured or otherwise damaged mining tyre without having to buy a new one. Because the process requires in-depth knowledge of the chemical processes involved in vulcanisation and a steady eye for detail, this type of repair requires the work of experienced professionals who can ensure that the repair will hold up over time and meet safety standards. At TyreDoctor, we have performed and perfected this technique on mining tyres in the Wollongong area for over 30 years.
