Versatile industrial gear units

SEW-EURODRIVE has released its X series of versatile and powerful industrial gear (IG) units. The units were supplied to an ongoing coal terminal expansion in South Africa as part of an upgrade project. Three of its IG units — X-170, X-180 and X-210 — were supplied.


Lighting that meets harsh industrial conditions

The Roughguard LED has been designed to be used in industrial corrosive and harsh environments. It is manufactured using a high-pressure, die-cast marine grade aluminum with a robust clear polycarbonate diffuser. The vandal proof polycarbonate diffuser is secured to the body by six stainless steel Allen head tamper proof screws.


Safer, innovative working solutions

The Murray and Roberts pre-sink gantry is one of the firm’s innovative technologies aimed at enhancing safety and increasing efficiencies and productivity in the sector. This is attributed to man and material loading being handled on one side of the gantry, with waste rock being dumped from the other side. This is achieved with the gantry traversing between these two points.


Dust-free dry drilling bolts

The new Sandvik DS411 rock bolters were successfully tested at the Finsch diamond mine to support mining operations. Sandvik dry drilling bolters were employed to promote additional safety in the kimberlitic ground of the diamond mine.


Gen-X trip unit


Eaton has launched the Power Xpert Release (PXR) platform — the next generation trip unit. The system enables engineers to test and configure circuit breakers from a PC via a USB port. This is integrated into the power management company’s IZMX air circuit breakers.


High performance drainage

Ridgidrain is the complete solution for non-pressurised surface and subsurface drainage applications. It has a high strength to weight ratio, and a flexibility that allows it to resist high traffic loads and settlement without cracking or leaking. It is manufactured from high strength, high-density polyethylene (HDPE) to a structured wall design that produces a robust but flexible pipe, which ranges from 100mm to 600mm in length.
