    Underground - Longwall Adapted to the mining challenges faced by our customers today, Cat customized systems for longwall mining include hydraulic roof supports, high-horsepower shearers, automated plow systems and armored face conveyors with intelligent drive technology — controlled and supported by advanced longwall automation. Roof support. The technique of supporting the roof by rock bolting became common in the late s and did much to provide an unobstructed working area for room-and-pillar mining, but it was a laborious and slow operation that prevented longwall mining from realizing its potential. In the late s, however, powered, self-advancing roof.

The search for the optimum roof support system continues with over 50 standing roof support products now on the market for longwall tailgate and bleeder Size: 1MB. Background:In longwall mining, for the purposes production and safety, the roof exposed in the working area of a longwall face must be supported and protected. For this purpose, hydraulic support units, which are called powered roof supports, are used in the production area.

The underground observations have been correlated to Rock Mass Classification, to stress calculations and to the angle between the direction of the fissures and the direction of longwall mining.

The analysis work yielded the following two sets of results: 1. provide stable roof conditions. LONGWALL SUPPORT CAPACITY In order to perform an assessment the four main support elements about the longwall face, namely the coal seam, roof strata, longwall supports and goaf, need to be considered.

There are several data sources available to estimate support parameters, particularly from an operating longwall. How a powered roof support works Powered Roof Supports (PRS) are self advancing structures (machines) which are interconnected along the length of the longwall face.

Each support along the line is also connected to each pan of the Armoured Flexible Conveyor (AFC).File Size: 2MB.

Longwall Powered Roof Supports Nepean Longwall together with its global partners can supply a range of powered roof support solutions that are designed, engineered, type tested and manufactured to meet our customers' exacting requirements.

EQUIPMENT SELECTION b) Face Supports. While it is frequently argued (correctly) that all items on a longwall face have to be considered as parts of an integrated unit and be fully compatible, it cannot be denied that poorly designed and inadequate roof supports are likely to have a greater effect on results than other items, and to that extent are more important.

State-of-the-art longwall roof supports provide effective strata control, but failures of these support systems still occur. To identify failure mechanisms and the impact these failures have on the safety of the support system, the U.S. Bureau of Mines has been conducting research on shield mechanics in the Bureau's unique mine roof simulator, as well as field studies of in situ support.

In the United States, Mandatory Safety Standard CFR calls for approval of the roof support system of the long- wall on an individual basis. A roof con- trol plan must be submitted to the District Manager of the Mine Safety and Health Administration. BUILDING FRAMING SYSTEMS AND BEST PRACTICES.

Roof Sheathing. Roof sheathing is the first structural component in the load path between the roof system and the foundation. The first envelope components (i.e., the roof covering and roof underlayment) are typically. non-structural and are discussed in detail in Chapter 8.

A longwall gateroad roof support design method for roadway development and panel extraction is demonstrated. It is a hybrid numerical and empirical method called gateroad roof support model (GRSM), where specification of roof support comes from charts or by:.

Longwall has better resource recovery (about 80% compared with about 60% for room and pillar method), fewer roof support consumables are needed, higher volume coal clearance systems, minimal manual handling and safety of the miners is enhanced by the fact that they are always under the hydraulic roof supports when they are extracting coal.The Longwall Top Coal Caving (LTCC) roof support allows mining to a total seam height of more than 10 m (33 ft) by using a longwall shearer to cut the bottom m ( ft) and then caving the top coal behind the roof supports onto a rear AFC.Roof Support Technology Cat roof supports — also known as shields — operate in ranges from m to more than 7m.

Caterpillar has a wealth of experience in both high- and low-seam applications, and is able to tailor roof support design to geological conditions and specific customer requirements.

Most shields today are two-leg designs.
