Becker Mining SA has supplied the rope attachments equipment currently being fitted to the winder ropes of the world’s largest friction hoists.
This equipment has been designed and manufactured by the Becker Mining team in South Africa, to meet specific winding requirements of a leading copper mine in Mongolia.
“Becker Mining’s rope attachments equipment consists of both running and spare sets of rope attachments for all three winders being installed as production, service and auxiliary hoists,” says Tom Searle, Senior General Manager: Capital, Becker Mining South Africa (Pty) Ltd. “The production hoist rope attachments consist of six strings of hydraulically adjusting headrope sets, six strings of fixed head rope sets and 12 sets of tail rope attachments. A complete spare set, which is identical to the running set, was also supplied.
“The service hoist has identical attachments to the production hoist and is enhanced by a complete set of spares.
“Both the production and service hoists, which are friction winders, are the largest mine winders of this type ever to be installed.”
