Tanjung Enim Coal Mine Has No Unplanned Downtime Since 1997 Due to TVVS Couplings
The Indonesian mining company Bukit Asam has always been pleased with the reliability of its installed Voith fluid couplings at Tanjung Enim Coal Mine in Sumatra. The fluid couplings ensure smooth start-ups day after day and a long service life for all components, especially the belts.
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.
