Winding its way underground

Becker Mining has designed a winding rope attachment designed to cover specific winding requirements of underground mining.

Four sets of head rope attachments and four sets of tail rope attachments are required for the 4.5m drum diameter Koepe winder, which accommodates 38mm head ropes and 40mm tail ropes.

In addition, the winding rope is fitted with a 30-tonne rocket type safety detaching hook set. A set of 5-tonne rocket type safety detaching hooks is also fixed to the service winder, which has a 26mm rope fitted.

Rocket safety detaching hooks are designed to detach the winding rope from the conveyance in the event of an overwind and arrest and suspend the conveyance in the headframe. This patented design caters for the prevention of partial detachments while in service.
