Rulmeca Corporation and UK Coal Ltd. Co-Author Technical Paper

Kellingley Colliery's Motorized Pulley Success Will be Presented at Coal Prep Conference 2006


May 4 , 2006 -- Engineers from Rulmeca Corporation and UK Coal Ltd will present their paper entitled "Motorised Pulley Solves Dirt Conveyor Problem at UK Coal Colliery." Rulmeca will also exhibit Motorized Pulleys at Booth #312 at the Coal Prep Show May 1-4.

Longwall Miner
"Today UK Coal Ltd produces 9 million tonnes of saleable coal, approximately 85% of the total UK coal production, from 7 Deep Mines and 1 Opencast site. Deep Mines are located near Harworth, South Yorkshire and opencast mine is in South Midlands."
Refurbished Tailings Conveyor
"Kellingley Colliery reduced 30 days/year of unscheduled production stoppages and decreased maintenance and energy expense by upgrading their floor-mounted "bottom belt" conveyor drive system. The upgrade included switching the drive to a modern Motorized Pulley, moving the drive from beneath the belt to the discharge end."
Ancient Industry
"The first recorded commercial coal mining in Great Britain occurred 200 years before Christopher Columbus discovered America in North East of England in the 13th century during the reign of Edward I."


New Motorized Pulley
"100 HP Motorized Pulley was installed in October 2003 during a weekend. The unit is 31.5" in diameter and 47.24" in width. In November 2005 the unit was returned to Rulmeca's factory in Germany for inspection, which yielded excellent results."
