Cutting cycles

Cutting cycles

 · Longwall retreat mining has traditionally produced coal using two methods, bidirectional and unidirectional mining cycles. The use of bidirectional cutting has always been seen as more productive on longer faces, however as shearer power and haulage speeds have increased, and thicker seams have been targeted, and environmental considerations increase, unidirectional cutting has .

Longwall productivity has been increased by improvements in mining technology as well as by the mining of larger panels. Unfortunately, with these productivity improvements and the mining of deeper, gassier coalbeds, methane gas emissions can become a problem. Increased methane gas emissions are a safety concern and can also reduce productivity when mining is halted to allow gas concentrations ...

CASE STUDY ON LONGWALL MINING

CASE STUDY ON LONGWALL MINING

In longwall mining, the coal is extracted by the machine called shearer. It is mounted on the armoured face conveyor. It cuts the coal and acts as power loader by loading the coal on to the AFC. Shearer is preferred normally for seams more than up to to be rotated 180°when shearer machine reverse its direction of the travel. It has ranging arm, cowl, shearer body, sides on AFC and ...
