Pennsylvania’s third-largest coal producer was replacing mining cable frequently on underground haulage systems due to failure from abrasion. Safety being a top priority, the customer needed a long-term solution that could be used in emergency shut-off situations.
As leading mining cable manufacturers, TPC suggested Super-Trex® 16/6 Multi-Conductor P&R Cable, which features a specially compounded TSE jacket that provides superior first-line defense against tearing, abrasion, impact, oil, ozone, most chemicals, flame, heat, and weather. Even under harsh conditions, mining cable from TPC lasts through it all.
Having the right cable in the right application saves valuable time and money. Previously, when the customer was replacing cable bi-monthly for three systems, failures for a 10-month period added up to $7,621 in parts and labor. Conversely, with TPC’s mining cable installed for the same period of time, the customer saved $6,339 in costs and increased production by 54 hours.

We are the mining cable supplier with the tough products you need to get the job done. Our mining customers use our cable in their shuttle cars, longwall miners, horizontal and vertical power feeds, continuous miners, and mining pumps.
