Global Repair and Support Service for Mining

Global Repair and Support Service for the Mining Industry

Equipment used in the mining industries is subject to extreme mechanical stresses: it has to operate in challenging climatic environments, yet has to work reliably with an operational lifespan frequently measured in decades. In many cases, the easy-to-reach resources have already been extracted, meaning today’s equipment is increasingly sophisticated and having to work even harder to reach what is left.

Four Questions to Ask Before Choosing a Drivetrain for Heavy Industries

When it comes to performance and durability, not all power and motion transmission solutions are created equal. Harsh environmental conditions in certain markets, such as the metallurgical and marine sectors, can heavily damage the drivetrain. In these cases, exceptional performance, durability and reliability are essential.

Drive Train Mining Application

Stromag Periflex® tyre couplings accommodate misalignment and minimise maintenance

In many industrial environments the transmission of power through the drive train requires couplings that are able to carry high torque while also accommodating misalignment and vibration. Stromag’s range of Periflex® Shaft Couplings use a highly flexible, rubber-fabric ‘tyre’ element to transmit up to 15,000 Nm of torque, while compensating for radial, axial and angular misalignment. Further, wear is limited to the rubber element to minimise the burden of maintenance.

Ski Lifts with People

Formsprag Model FSO Overrunning Clutches for Ski Lifts

A major Colorado ski resort required reliable overrunning clutches for use on their chair lifts. The resort has more than 20 ski lifts with a combined lift capacity of more than 30,000 riders per hour. The lifts feature a wide range of vertical rises up to 1,700 ft. (518 m) and ride times of up to 11 minutes.

Blast Furnace Slag Granulator

Nuttall Drivetrain Assemblies for Blast Furnace Slag Granulator

A global designer and manufacturer of slag granulator systems needed heavy-duty drivetrain assemblies for a new steel mill installation. Molten slag is a by-product generated by the mill’s blast furnace during the steelmaking process. The slag granulator utilizes several identical drivetrain assemblies to move the slag slowly on a conveyor while it is subjected to water jets which disperse/convert the slag into small granules.
