Mill liner bolt remover works automatically

A new Mill Liner Bolt Remover developed by the Centre de Recherche Industrielle du Quebec (CRIQ) in Sainte-Foy, Que., has been successfully implemented at a large iron-ore production facility in Quebec. The time-saving device, which has been field tested for the past seven years, is an automatic pneumatic tool which combines the operation of screwing/unscrewing the nuts, with ejecting the bolts on the mill liner equipment. It can be mounted on a base or hung from a track and includes an operator panel for remote control operation, allowing movement of the equipment from one nut to the next.
