48 • E&MJ/Coal Age India 2016 Equipment & Technology Reutech Mining has introduced a compact and convenient ground penetrating radar system that is claimed to be more user-friendly than comparable products currently available. The Sub Surface Profiler (SSP) is described as a low-cost, lightweight GPR designed specifically for the challenges of the underground mining environment, weighing less than 4.5 kg with a patented, compact ergonomic design that allows one-handed operation by one person in much the same way as a paint roller. The SSP has been designed to be extremely power efficient, and uses small, rechargeable batteries that can be replaced during operation. Collected data is wirelessly transmitted to a tablet computer, where it is processed in real time, providing instant feedback about fault structures that may be present up to 6 m inside a rock mass. www.reutechmining.com Ground Penetrating Radar for Underground Applications Vibrating Grizzly Feeder Features Robust Design, Safer Upkeep Superior Industries' Freedom vibrating grizzly feeder (VGF) is available in configurations to feed up 1,400 tons per hour (t/h). According to the company, it has engineered several key differentiating features into its design, including a much more robust pan section for improved impact resistance and dura- bility, and grizzly cartridges designed to bolt into the feeder's frame—one set of bars is applicable for flat or 5° applications, so owners can limit their stock to one style. Bottle-jack lifting points are built into the spring section of the Freedom VGF, which eliminates lifting of the pan with cranes or bucket load- ers for spring replacement, thus increasing safety during this common maintenance task. The new VGF is offered in pan widths of 36 in. to 60 in. Options include customization to the feeder's width, grizzly sections, punch plate and finger deck. www.superior-ind.com Bucket Protection System Expands its Range ESCO Corp. recently unveiled its newest Nemisys product, the N95 cast lip system, which extends the range of the Nemisys system and provides additional features that improve safety, inventory management and productivity. ESCO's Securelift lift- ing system is now incorporated into the lip shrouds, providing mining crews with a more complete, purpose-built solution for handling worn parts. Integral shroud locks reduce the amount of replacement parts that need to be ordered, lowering inven- tory effort and costs. The system also offers weight savings over competitive and legacy systems of up to 22%. Nemisys N95 is available in three cast lip sizes and is an equivalent upgrade from the S-Series legacy system. www.escocorp.com/N95
