Product Description

Haul truck efficiency, fuel consumption, and speed are key drivers to productivity and safety of any mining operation. In addition, proper haul road design, friction, and dust management are known to contribute significantly to haul truck and mining operational efficiency. The Vericom VC4000MSI is a portable, user friendly haul road friction and haul road geometry measurement instrument. Vericom is known world-wide for accuracy and precision and has been adopted by large mine operators world-wide.

The Vericom VC4000MSI™ series is the preferred instrument for haul road design and friction analysis. With the
Vericom device you can test ANY piece of mining equipment for performance on haul roads. Simply mount the
VC4000 MSI on the test item and conduct the test. Developing an operational protocol that conforms to the
stopping performance criteria as noted in standard ISO 3450 is now simple and efficient.

Dust Suppression & Haul Road Friction
• With the Vericom VC4000 MSI a detailed analysis of haul road friction vs. water truck application rates ensures maximum haul truck productivity while minimizing dust hazards.
• Customers that use Vericom in their mining operation can quickly determine when it is safe to resume operations following a rain event.
• Add a dust sensor to enhance the watering strategy and compare dust levels against watering level vs. actual haul road friction capability.
