Fluid Couplings Avoid Unexpected Downtimes of AFC Drives

The Jin Cheng Coal Group decided to replace the two-speed motors on its armored face conveyors (AFCs) with Voith fluid couplings (type 562 DTPKWL2), in order to prevent chain breaks as well as gearbox and motor breakdowns in the future.

Black Thunder Thermal Coal Mine, Wyoming

The Black Thunder thermal coal mine, located in the Southern Powder River Basin of Wyoming, US, was opened in 1977 and for many years was the largest single coal operation in the world.

Obuasi Gold Mine, Ghana

The gold operation at Obuasi, 200km north-west of Accra in Ghana, was the major asset of Ashanti Goldfields Company (AGC), established in London in 1897.

Samancor Chrome Mines

With low electricity prices, South Africa has been able to expand chromite and ferrochrome production more or less continuously since the AOD process was developed in the 1960s to use ferrochrome smelted from lower-grade ores.

Venetia Diamond Mine

The Venetia diamond mine, which opened in 1992, is De Beers Consolidated Mines' flagship operation. Situated 80km from M

The Right Voith Drive Solution for Every Belt Conveyor

Voith recently delivered 36 fluid couplings for an iron ore distribution centre in Malaysia. Starting this year, the couplings will be used in the drives of 16 belt conveyors supplied by the BEUMER Group. For each of the belt conveyors Voith has offered just the right fluid couplings.

Voith Releases New CD-ROM about Fill-Controlled Fluid Couplings

Voith Turbo, the drive technology specialist, presents animations of fill-controlled fluid couplings on a completely new multimedia CD-ROM. Fill-controlled fluid couplings operate on the principle of hydrodynamic power transmission, meaning that torque is transmitted by a liquid – and occurs in a

TurboSim for Simulation of Drives with Voith Fluid Couplings

Conveyor systems in mining applications are reaching higher and higher outputs. On the one hand, this makes increasing demands on materials and functionality, and on the other, plant engineers request detailed information on the anticipated start-up behavior already during the project stage.

Robust Fill-Controlled Fluid Coupling Increases Production in Mines
