- Increased tram speed
- Twice the battery life of standard 128V units
- Grade speed control and load capacity stability create safer operating conditions
- Decreased battery maintenance and watering
- Proven dynamic braking capability reduces wear on cables
- Motors and drive system
- Significantly lower drive heat eliminates costly motor and cable replacements or repairs
For low-seam coal mining, GE's Fairchild Underground Mining Equipment helps to maximize operational efficiency. The 35CLV-AC and 35C-LS-DC Low Vein Battery-Powered Scoops can operate under the harshest conditions.
GE's Fairchild Mining Equipment's Multipurpose Vehicle Series features the industry's most flexible mining vehicle. It can be converted by removing the fifth wheel assembly and replacing it with other attachments, including a scoop bucket, maintenance center and forks with a duckbill to provide "four vehicles in one." The Multipurpose Vehicle is available in battery- and diesel-powered units.
The 35C Diesel-Powered Workhorse Scoop is tough and reliable enough to produce the desired results. Featuring state-of-the-art technology, including Cummins† power units, this maintenance-friendly vehicle is available in permissible and non-permissible models.
This vehicle has proven stability under heavy loading in longwall operations with significantly lower electrical heat, eliminating costly motor and cable replacement or repairs. The 36S-AC Longwall Shield Haulers feature state-of-the-art technology and exceptional design characteristics throughout the machine, including dual 75HP tram motors, 72- to 84-inch fork length, and large capacity scoop bucket. The vehicle is equipped with 48-inch tires with durable inboard planetary axles.
GE's Fairchild Mining Equipment's maintenance vehicles and centers are MSHA approved and permissible, making them ideal for keeping equipment in top condition.
The maintenance vehicles feature a four-ton jib crane, hydra powered pressure washer, air compressor, air tank with optional air tools, oxygen and acetylene storage, onboard bonder area, gear and hydraulic oil tanks, area lighting and various tool boxes and vises. Vehicles are available in custom and standard models.
GE's Fairchild Mining systems can mine coal selectively by cutting and loading low-ash coal on the first swing before cutting and loading rock, high-ash or high-sulfur coal on the second swing without resetting the miner.
The F330 Continous Miner high-production, thin seam-continuous mining system allows mine operators worldwide to mine a cleaner product and increase their recoverable reserves dramatically.
With less rock in the raw coal, preparation plants can operate more efficiently while minimizing the environmental impact of their processing activities.
Through extensive research, GE's Fairchild Mining engineers, working alongside the mining industry, have developed an improved-design high capacity haulage system. Packed with impressive features designed especially for increasing profits. Imagine what the Fairchild "Hi-Cap XL" haulage system can do for you.
- 30" Conveyor with a capacity up to 22 tons per minute
- Dual 180 degree articulating crawlers offer unparalleled flexibility
- True 90 degree cross-cut capabilities
- Center-operated for increased visibility, safety, and operator comfort
- True Mainframe - Built for the long haul
- Optional remote control operations
