Corum’s New Product – KBT200 shearer loader – undergone field trials successfully
“The cutting-edge design solution of the Underground Mining Division enabled to double the machinery performance capacity and propel thin bed mining of extra strong coals to the absolutely new level. The main advantage of the new shearer loader is a lateral coal bed cutting method, which allows reducing power consumption by 20% and coal winning in the conditions of soft walls", – stated Ildar Saleev, Director of the Underground Mining Division of Corum.
In addition, owing to the chainless haulage and chainless shearing drive the novelty complies with all up-to-date occupational safety requirements.
In the longwall conditions of Geroev Kosmosa mine the machinery has demonstrated maximum output over the period of field trials - nearly 2,900 thous. tons per day, average daily production of coal being 2,000 tons per day.
Successful completion of the field trial will enable the Underground Mining Division of the Company to proceed to the serial manufacture of КBТ200 shearer loader.
