Engineering Model Facilities VCD Compliance And Certification

January 8, 2015
While hazards resulting from spontaneous heating, gas migration, explosions and flooding remain a major threat to the safety and productivity of underground coal mines, specific research into overpressure ratings and integrity testing of ventilation control devices remains relatively limited. “Given the difficulty to conduct field tests in operational environments, as well as the high variability […]

Life-Of-Mine Breakthrought Marks Twenty Years Of Innovation

January 8, 2015
With twenty years of industry innovation under its belt, Australia’s only mine-to-site manufacturer of ventilation control and strata support solutions has a lot to celebrate. Presenting at the Australian Coal Operators’ Conference in Wollongong last week, Aquacrete’s business development manager, Greg Kay, unveiled trial results that could set the standard for life-of-mine planning and design […]

Innovation Key To Longwall Take-Off Approaches

January 8, 2015
Finding safe and efficient solutions to longwall take-offs has led to many innovations in underground coal mining. Having to take into account the risks of a failed take-off, including the costly impact of a potential roadway collapse, developing new processes is not for the faint-hearted. As an Australian manufacturer and provider of strata and ventilation […]

Site Audits Key To Monitoring Structural Component Integrity

January 8, 2015
As underground mines increasingly focus on life-of-mine planning, understanding the long-term behaviour of structural devices plays an increasingly important role in ventilation and strata management planning. Having led the field with full-scale live blasting testing of its shot blast products as early as 1998, the ability to engineer structures to conform to the most adverse […]

Underground Live Testing Leads The Way To Engineering Certification Of VCD’s

January 8, 2015
The importance and complexity of the ventilation systems in many underground coalmines necessitates the calculation and determination of appropriate resistance values to be used for individual ventilation control devices (VCDs). Whilst there is a clear need to determine the required product strength and thickness of a VCD to meet individual site specifications, such data has […]
