Concrete spraying or shotcrete has become a critical component of safe and productive mine and tunnel operations around the world. Unlike the traditional methods of pouring or form work, shotcrete is a process which involves pneumatically spraying concrete at high velocity to construct solid surfaces. When working underground, concrete spraying creates a number of significant benefits to mine and tunnel operators. With the ability to support and stabilise tunnels, sprayed concrete linings can have a significant impact on improving worker safety, as well as reducing operational costs, cycle time and a project’s impact on the environment. Unlike manual methods, concrete spraying equipment allows personnel to operate machinery from a safe distance, positioning staff away from the dangers of falling rocks and within a secure area.
