South American Mine's Jumbo Drilling Rig Causing Tension

CUSTOMER PROBLEM:

In this underground mining application, the cable was failing due to extreme abrasion and corkscrewing due to mechanical tension that is exerted from the reeling system. The customer was replacing the cable every 2 months.

TPC SOLUTION:

TPC’s Super-Trex® GGC 2/0 3 conductor cable was replaced in one jumbo drilling rig application.

CUSTOMER’S RESULT:

After 9 months, TPC GGC cable is still working in the application. So far, this has saved the customer $5,010.50 USD in material costs and increased production by 104 hours.
