Hydraulic Safety Pressure Switch on Mine Winder

Hydraulic Safety Pressure Switch on Mine Winder

Application

Industry: Mining & Metal Refining

The Problem


Properly working underground coal mine hydraulics, used to operate the control of the braking system of the winder, is vital when moving mine personnel underground or bringing them to the surface. It is extremely important to ensure that the machine is stopped if low or high pressure is detected on line from the hydraulic pump that operates the winder. With personnel safety involved we can't afford any cable slip.

Product of the Month: STA Functional Safety Trip Alarm

Product of the Month: STA Functional Safety Trip Alarm
Risk reduction, reliability, and safety are important factors in the automated control of potentially hazardous processes such as the overpressure and containment of dangerous substances. Process Industry personnel are always aware of the need to protect people, the environment, and facilities as part of their overall risk management plan. A central strategy employed today includes safety instrumented functions (SIF), or functional safety, utilizing IEC 61511 standards. A crucial instrument in a safety instrumented system is the logic solver, which acts as a decision maker initiating the final action to make the process safe should the need arise.
