Fluid couplings for Chinese mine

  Chinese mining company Xishan Jinxing Energy uses the fill-controlled 866 TPKL fluid coupling from Voith. Three fluid couplings are used underground in the 4,8 MW drive of the main belt conveyor in the Xiegou No. 12 coal mine in Shanxi Province. Three 1600 kW drives power the 1900 m long main inclined belt conveyor […]

Mill relining machine overhauled

BMG Hydraulics has completed the overhaul of an entire mill relining machine, including the mechanical elements and hydraulic system and components of the electrical system. The purpose-designed machine, which is used to remove and replace liners at a local gold mine, would normally be sent to Australia to be overhauled, which takes over six months. […]

Modular, flexible option for valve control

PSV Mitech’s general purpose globe control valves are suited for handling high pressures, high and low temperatures, corrosive fluids and large pressure drops. They are available with a wide range of standard and special trims which are designed to eliminate cavitation in liquids and to reduce noise levels in high pressure drop gas applications. When […]

Severe-service valves for demanding applications

PSV Mitech’s severe-service valves solve demanding applications in the power, oil and gas industries. This series has been applied in the mining and other industries where erosive slurries are encountered. Control of steam and water in power generation is essential to ensure the efficient operation of the plant and to protect equipment. The valves can […]

Conveyor belt speed switch for mining industry

Process Automation’s SS-501 system is available in a compact, rugged package, with proven track record of operation and reliability in mining and other heavy duty industrial applications. Little or no maintenance is required, and direct installation on conveyors with speeds ranging from 0,1 m/min – 1000 m/min are allowed. This system has a single sensing […]

4800 kg valves for hydrocarbon plant

  PSV Mitech has manufactured two of its largest valves to date. The two 600 mm globe control valves are being supplied to its agent Valve Solutions in the UK. The valves are to be used on a hydrocarbon gas application with an inlet pressure of 32 bar (g) and an outlet pressure of 3 […]

Grapple mounted radiation detection

The new Thermo Scientific RadEye GR 2010 series provides a grapple-mounted radiation detection ability to minimise the threat of radioactive material in the scrap metal stream. The radiation signal output is passed to a radio device mounted at the side of the grapple body. From there, the data is transmitted wirelessly to the RadEye R, […]

Spherical roller bearings reduce grease egress

Schaeffler’s new sealed FAG E1 X-life spherical roller bearings can reduce grease consumption by up to 80%. An innovative seal concept minimises grease egress and eliminates complicated relubrication systems while maintaining the same high dynamic and static load rating. The compact bearing, which has the same outside dimensions as non-sealed standard bearings, is therefore almost […]

Partnership extends reach into Africa

  Bearing Man Group (BMG) has announced the conclusion of a strategic partnership agreement with global motion and control company Parker Hannifin Corporation. This development extends the BMG range of pneumatic and hydraulic filtration products and systems to include Parker motion and control technologies. Parker offers solutions in the electromechanical; hydraulic and pneumatic; fluid and […]

Valves for assembly close to the actuator

The new, lightweight AV03 valve system from Bosch Rexroth has an ultra-compact design thanks to a diagonal arrangement of the valve components – making it ideal for assembly close to the actuator. The result is a lower pressure drop across the system, and optimised performance. Technical designers always try to position pneumatic valves as close […]
