BKT displays its giant 57-inch tire at ongoing mining expo in Kolkata

Balkrishna Industries Ltd. (BKT), the Indian multinational group and global player in the off-highway tire market, is displaying a selection of products including the latest Giant 57-inch EARTHMAX SR 468 TL tire, an all steel radial tire specially designed for 240-tonne rigid dump trucks. The company also showcased its EARTHMAX SR 53 TL tire, created for ultra-large loaders, operating in severe rocky conditions. At the IME, BKT’s showstopper was the newly introduced MINEFORCE TL, a bias E-4 tire, specifically curated for rigid haul trucks in limestone quarry and coal mining operations.

Commenting on BKT’s participation at the event, Rajiv Poddar, Joint Managing Director, Balkrishna Industries Ltd., stated, “At BKT, we have been partaking at IME, which has been well-known in the mining equipment segment. The expo has been a perfect platform for BKT to showcase the latest product range. We were extremely glad to be back at IME and to have the opportunity to meet our customers and partners, whose input and feedback are keys to the development of high-performance products.”

Speaking about the latest addition – the MINEFORCE, he said, “The MINEFORCE is BKT’s innovative response to the rocky, abrasive and harsh environment, rigid dumper trucks with 100-tonne capacity, specially designed for limestone quarry, coal, and other mining applications.” He further adds, “the Giant 57-inch EARTHMAX SR 468 tire, born in Covid-19 times, thanks to the extraordinary determination of our fellow workers, is the largest tire in India.”

EARTHMAX SR 468 TL is a 57-inch tire (40.00R57) equipped with an all steel structure, which provides greater resistance to the casing. A winning feature of the EARTHMAX SR 468 is the special tread design and the compound, created to limit heat generation and resistance to cuts. BKT EARTHMAX SR 468 is thus ready to confront the most challenging mining conditions.

On the display, was another tire from the EARTHMAX family, the 45/65R45 EARTMAX SR 53 TL, an all steel radial tire specially designed for ultra-large loaders, operating in severe rocky conditions. The classified deep L-5 tread consists of a compound that is cut-resistant. In addition, the tire is designed to offer extraordinary abrasion-resistant properties while in loading operation.

Also on display, MINEFORCE 27.00-49 54PR size, an innovative solution for the mining application for rigid dump trucks with 100-tonne capacity. It features a sturdy casing construction coupled with a unique tread pattern and a special tread compound has been developed by BKT’s R&D for cuts and chip-resistant properties, which is most suitable for limestone quarry, coal, and other mining applications, where there is severity in the application. Furthermore, the tire has a large contact patch with rigid lugs that provides even tread wear and a longer life cycle.
