Innovations in shotblast technology have transformed the underground mining industry. In particular, understanding the performance of non-cementitious products has been a catalyst for engineering advancement.
For Aquacrete, that innovation has seen the introduction of a system of solutions that addresses the most varied and adverse site challenges.
Aquacrete Thickness Gauge
Aquacrete’s in-situ testing technology – known as the Aquacrete Thickness Gauge – allows underground operators to non-destructively verify the thickness, and where necessary the overpressure rating compliance of structural devices.
Structural Design Systems
Aquacrete’s structural design system is used to determine the design and installation specifications of Aquacrete structural devices.
The system predicts the performance of a structural device based on the dimensions and geotechnical conditions of the specific mine site. This in turn is used to provide engineering specifications regarding product selection, product thickness and required strength for each installation site. If an installation conforms to the specifications, independent engineering certification can be obtained to confirm compliance.
