Trelawny TCG500 Floor Grinder Demo in Qatar

August 18, 2015

Trelawny's Qatari distributor Gulf Incon W.L.L has used the dual disc floor grinder TCG 500 on a customer demonstration to prepare the concrete prior to waterproofing. This project, the Karwa Underpass, is located in the center of Doha and part of a larger program aiming to improve the infrastructures of the area, linking the industrial areas to the city.

The TCG 500 was selected for concrete preparation due to its strong, robust built and ability to cover large areas. With multiple diamond tooling options, the floor grinder enabled the engineers to test two different tooling options to select the most appropriate option to for the job.

Option 1: 250mm medium bond 20 segment grinding discs.

Option 2: NEW quick release tool plate with 30 grit soft bond shoes. (More shoes means more grinding intensity and rougher finish).

The engineers discovered that the diamond shoes were 250% more productive than the diamond disc for this specific type of concrete and required finish.

Many thanks to Gulf Incon for conducting the demonstration and providing the report.
