    Experiences of gripper TBM application in shaft coal mine

    Nov 01, 2018 In shaft coal mines, the vertical shafts are the only access for materials and miners reach to underground working sites. Transporting TBM from ground to underground working site is a challenge due to the limited space of vertical shaft and huge number of TBM components which much of them are heavy and bulky.

    Shaft development rates are a function of diameter and ground conditions. For 8- to 10.5-ft diameter shafts, which is the vast majority of what SDI does, they can complete a 500- to 800-ft shaft in four to six months. For 12-to 15-ft diameter shafts, the development rate would be between five and seven months.
