HIRB Hoist Rope Impact Reduction Box
The HIRB Hoist Rope Impact Reductioon Box is designed to improve efficiency and reduce vibration on electric rope shovels. As with any piece of equipment used in a mining industry the HIRB is built to withstand an extreme amount of abuse with the least amount of maintenance required.
This HIRB will be valuable to the mines with what it brings to the table. The HIRB is proven to significantly reduce vibration to the shovels and internal components. As a result, the integrity of the components is preserved and the wear and tear on the shovel is reduced drastically.
The HIRB removes unwanted slack from the ropes and leads to higher efficiency and increased cycle time. On top of all of this, the HIRB reduces unwanted flex, vibration, and movement in the ropes, which has the potential to increase rope life.
We are currently working with hoist rope manufacturers to develop even more ways for the HIRB to complement the ropes. Every electric rope shovel in operation needs a HIRB.
