Hoists Used in the Mining Industry
Mine hoists are integral items of equipment for the mining process. In fact, they are the most used product within the mining industry. In order to move mined materials through the mine and between items of machinery and equipment, hoists are used. Their main functions are to convey, manoeuvre and transport goods and materials. There are various types and sizes of hoists on the market for use in the mining industry. In fact, most mining equipment is designed to employ several mine hoists for peak performance.
When shopping around for mine hoists, you will find that they are typically available in the following varieties:
- Manual hoists – these rely on man power to propel the lifting and lowering of mined materials.
- Motorised hoists – these are automated and therefore ensure a standard and predictable pace for lifting and hoisting tasks to be carried out.
Over the years, hoists have seen many improvements and changes to their design, and how they are manufactured. Hoists are also usually available in single drum, double drum and friction varieties. Shaft digging and material excavation can erode the earth excessively during deep mining and narrow shaft mining. With the use of hoists, these mining processes can take place with minimal earth erosion. The objective behind the latest mine hoist designs is to ensure a safer, easier and more efficient mining experience.
While there are various types of standard mining hoists available on the market, it is important to know that each hoist can be customised to suit your specific needs and requirements.
