BMG has supplied external mechanical drives for the PC Lift II project at the Palaborwa Copper Mine, through RSV SA.
“These mechanical drives, which will soon be installed on underground conveyors at the mine, comprise the largest motors supplied by BMG to date. These 630 kW 4 pole 11 kV motors were designed and assembled by the BMG technical resources team,” says Clive Dicks, BMG’s sales manager, projects. “The order encompasses a 75 kW complete drive for conveyor CV26 and six 630 kW complete drives for conveyors CV23 and CV25. These drives consist of BMG electric motors, Paramax gearboxes, couplings, guards and complete base plates.
“BMG has also supplied six Marland external holdbacks, with load sharing capabilities and some of the belting required for these conveyors.”
BMG will provide a full support service for the installation, alignment and verification of these units. The company’s technical resources team, supported by over 140 mobile technicians, offers a complete service, which positively influences a company’s operating efficiencies, by ensuring maximised mechanical reliability of plant and machinery. The initial design concept is followed by the specification, manufacturing quality control, commissioning and support of equipment.
Specialist services include installation, adjustment, replacement and maintenance of components, shaft and pulley alignment, balancing, condition monitoring, oil sampling and analysis and critical equipment inspections and lubrication schedules. Maintenance training and fault diagnosis also form an important part of BMG’s field services.
