Latest advances in concrete floor grinding
Company News Thursday, November 24, 2016: Pan Mixers South Africa
PMSA distributes HTC products in South Africa through its fully-owned subsidiary Superb Flooring Systems. “The HTC range forms part of our total concrete equipment solutions,” Quintin Booysen, marketing and sales manager at PMSA, comments. The range consists of HTC Greyline machines, HTC Twister floor cleaning and grinding pads, professional grinders, dust extractors and various tools and accessories.
“HTC is consistently looking at bringing the latest developments to market in the most cost-effective manner possible,” Andreas Hasselmose, sales manager: Southern Africa at Superb Flooring Systems, explains. These advances include the development of fully-automated concrete floor grinding, whereby a programmable robotic arm is deployed to carry out the process.
Latest product developments at HTC include a propane-powered version of the popular HTC 800 RX concrete floor grinder. The HTC 800 RXP can be used in areas without access to electricity or back-up power, or where electrical equipment is not permitted.
This new four-head machine is ideal for maximum performance and flexibility, without being dependent upon generators or any kind of external power supply. In addition, battery back-up power means that it can be loaded from a trailer without connected power.
A significant benefit is that it offers up to 50% greater productivity, due to such features as remote control and drive-on wheels. The HTC 800 RXP also features a patented drive system with four grinding discs, which means that the machine is perfectly balanced. Designed with ergonomics in mind and simplified operation, the machine not only boosts quality, but increases efficiency as well.
Other features are integrated weights for adjusting grinding pressure, precise throttle control for consistent grinding speeds and increased capacity with a 32" grinding width. The engine is a 852 cc Kawasaki/EnviroGard model, with an output of 27HP @ 3600RPM.
Industrial floor solutions available from HTC include the grinding of warehousing and factory flooring to high tolerances with the HTC Automatic Laser Levelling (ALL) system. Retail floor solutions focus on modern floor finishes with a variety of colours by altering the stone content and aggregate colour and size. Residential floor solutions focus on grinding and polishing in order to produce an upmarket, shiny and durable floor finish with HTC’s Superfloor®.
“HTC has been the market leader in floor grinding and related equipment for over 20 years, and is well entrenched in the South African market,” Hasselmose notes. The Swedish company produces its machines specifically with high performance, user friendliness and flexibility in mind, which it makes ideal for African operating conditions.
