GK Rotary Drum Liner Installation: York, PA

Rotary Drum Liner Installation

Installation of a liner system historically can be tricky, but that’s where General Kinematics has made great headway with its long-lasting, durable LOCK-TITE™ Liner System.

Robert Wasilewski, Sales Engineer for General Kinematics, points out why it lasts so much longer. “The LOCK-TITE™ System is made up of abrasion-resistant AR400. It’s tougher brinell than what other liners are made of, so you basically get longer life just from it being abrasion-resistant.”

And when it comes to ease of installation and safety, GK rep Keith Shaffer, President of KJS Industrial Services, puts it like this: “The competitors’ liner system is more difficult to install and maintain. They’re held in with a wedge system, which is why I never wanted to work on them to do that installation. It’s more dangerous. It can hurt guys when they’re installing this type of liner system if something breaks loose.”

Mr. Wasilewski elaborates. “A typical install with a competitive system takes anywhere between three to five days depending on how many guys work on it and how long a shift runs. It leads to increased downtime for the install.”

Mr. Shaffer confirms the point by stating, “With the GK system, two guys can come in, and within thirty to forty-five minutes, have the liner section replaced.”

“So the question is, why wouldn’t you want GK?” asks Mr. Wasilewski. “With GK, the biggest benefit is one of safety because you’re not trying to peace-meal a puzzle together where your big concern is trying not to have the pieces you’re putting in place fall on top of you. So for the purpose of safety, the ease of installation is number one.”

Keith Shaffer sums it up nicely by saying, “Anybody can do it. Generally speaking, with the competitor’s liner, an installation representative has to come in and show the guys how to install it or at least be a supervisor. That’s not so with the GK liner system. It’s simply come in, take the clamp bar out, replace the liner and clamp it back down again. It’s that simple.”

At General Kinematics, we take great pride in advancing technology for the benefit of improving the success of our customers.
