Suspended Monorail Transport
Checking and Measurement Instruments
An important activity in mines is the implementation of preventive monitoring, adjustment of equipment and monitoring of the operation of transport trains. Such activities are leading to and are particularly important for reducing downtimes and increase of safety in mines. Ferrit supplies checking instruments as KPBTS, KPBV4, KPBV5, MRC1 and others that are designed to test the braking and traction force or devices for checking, setting up of the tripping speed of centrifugal regulators and measuring the reaction time of actuating of the emergency braking systems of machinery and equipment operating on suspended tracks. Testo 330 exhaust gas analyser is used to carry out checks of prescribed emission values.
The basic elements of monitoring (traction vehicles′ operational values) are indicated on the visualisation unit of each traction vehicle. By using such monitoring systems the operator receives almost comprehensive overview of the operating times and downtimes etc. Collected data is important for taking necessary measures in logistics optimization, introduction of new transport system and their combination.
