• Shaft mining- latest advances in hoist safety and energy

    Blair multi-rope hoists Blair multi-rope hoists can be used as production or serv hoists. Blair multi-rope hoists are also known as multi-rope drum hoists. They can use either one or two drums. A multi-rope drum hoist is similar to a drum hoist but each drum uses two ropes to handle the load which, in turn, adds certain complications.

  • Mine improves operations through OEE and waterfall analysis

    Drum hoists need more space than friction hoists for the same serv because all of the haulage cable must be accommodated on the drum when the hoist is fully raised. Drum hoists require rapid fluctuations in power demand, which can pose a problem if power is generated on site rather than provided through the main power grid.2, 3 Hoist performance
