E&MJ/Coal Age India 2016 • 49 Equipment & Technology Accella Tire Fill Systems announced availability of its newest TLC tire and rim protection line, designed specifically for mining equipment. Accella, makers of the patented TyrFil polyurethane liquid fill, now offers its TLC line in four formu- lations: HT, Pro, Extreme and Tundra. TLC acts as a coolant, conditioning the wheel and coating the inside of rims to protect them from rust and deterioration. According to the company, the new tire and rim protection offering was determined by independent field testing to deliver superior resistance against corrosion even in the most extreme weather conditions, with formulations available to provide freeze protection levels from 20°F to -40°F. TLC formulations are claimed to be non-toxic, non-flammable and non-hazardous. www.accellatirefill.com New Tire Fill Formulations Protect Wheel Rims Continental has introduced three new power transmission belts for the mining industry: The Hy-T Wedge, SilentSync and Conti Synchrochain Carbon. The Hy-T Wedge has a new EPDM compound offering a broader operating temperature range and improved heat resistance. It also has new optimized tooth profile that improves flexibility and reduces belt fatigue to improve life. SilentSync has an exclusive tooth profile that reduces noise up to 19 dB compared with other straight tooth synchronous products. The sprockets use a flangeless design that is self-tracking and saves space, and continuous rolling engagement of the belt and sprocket reduce vibration. Conti Synchrochain Carbon is the strongest synchronous belt Continental offers, and uses ultra high-strength polyurethane and carbon cord to deliver more power in a smaller package. www.contitech.us Power Transmission Belts are Stronger, Smaller, Quieter Portable Crane System Uses Shipping Containers for Base Konecranes has developed a system that mounts its popular CXT electric overhead traveling crane on a steel frame and two standard ISO shipping containers to create a powerful, adaptable, fully mobile crane, the CXT Explorer. The CXT Explorer is a standard industrial crane that can be taken almost anywhere, and can be assembled, ready to lift, in just a few hours using standard shipping containers as its base. With a lifting height of 5 m and a span of 5 m, there is clearance for most field lifting needs, yet its compact size allows easy travel. The crane can be dismantled quickly, and the shipping containers double as storage for the crane components, service tools, equipment, and spare parts. It is adaptable to different environments, including sites with little or no infrastructure, and can run on a generator if there is no permanent source of electricity. It includes thermal and weather protection for use in extreme climates and on difficult terrain. The entire crane footprint can be covered with a special tent to shield users from the weather. The units can also be tethered together to provide a longer system. www.konecranes.com
