Polyurethane technology is a big opportunity, due to his key advantages, to propose a full product range adapted to mining application. Abrasion, UV resistance, Tearing and cutting are main technical advantage.
Attached to mobile machines, they trail behind machines when they move.
Applications include continuous miners, shuttle cars, bucket wheel excavators, electric shovels and draglines. To provide 36kV power along conveyer belts, these flexible cables are designed with double sheath and with optimized wall thicknesses which allow them to handle the vibration and mechanical stress of moving applications. POWERMINE™ Low and medium voltage product range is design to operate in this application.
Drilling and tunnelling cables
To meet the enormous electrical power needs of giant excavators, Nexans has developed a flexible cable with exceptional abrasion resistance and toughness. Nexans offer, for this application, is based on POWERMINE™ low and medium Voltage.
Specific design is also available for dredging application: POWERMINE™ low and medium voltage
