Robust braking and holdback solutions were required for use on a conveyor system at Sasol’s Impumelelo coal mine expansion project in South Africa. The multi-conveyor system includes a 26.9 km (16.7 mile) long overland conveyor, one of the longest single-flight conveyors in the country, that transports the coal from the mine to a distant storage bunker facility.
A major industrial fan OEM needed a clutch solution for a large dual drive fan at an oil refinery in Brazil. The refinery never shuts down and requires a continuous, uninterruptible supply of cooling air. The fan is powered by an electric motor on one side and a steam turbine on the other side. Clutches are used to provide a smooth transfer of power from one power supply to the other without stopping the fan.
