      MINE INCREASES PRODUCTION BY SWITCHING TO HIGH-TEMPERATURE, ABRASION-RESISTANT CABLE

      CUSTOMER PROBLEM

      A large, well-known U.S. coal mining operation in the Midwest was experiencing weld cable failures due to the rough and rocky landscape of the site. Their current mining cable was exposed to abrasion, direct impact from being run over, exposure to oil, and weld splatter — from welding itself. All of these variables meant the customer was risking MSHA citations, which can add up quickly.

      TPC SOLUTION

      One of our field specialists carefully assessed the situation and considered all of the types of damage this specific area was being exposed to. From high temperatures to chemicals to abrasion to impact and chunking, these were quite the challenging circumstances. That’s when TPC’s Super-Trex® 600V Welding Cable was introduced. 

      This rugged, high-temperature, abrasion-resistant cable solution comes equipped with our specially compounded, security yellow TSE jacket, meaning it offers superior first-line defense against all types of environmental elements. It actually has a 25% thicker wall than most ordinary cable and 100% fabric serve, which means that it’s flame-, heat-, and tear-resistant. Plus, this welding cable has MSHA approval, so when citations can be issued and money can be lost, it was important for this customer to maintain full compliance.

      CUSTOMER’S RESULT

      By switching from a commodity cable to a rugged TPC high-temperature, abrasion-resistant cable, this customer successfully achieved an increase in production by 294 hours and a cost savings of $21,465 over a 22-month period.
