Below are just a few samples of our many success stories. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you are looking for reference stories in other areas or for other projects.
Barge Unloading Conveyor WinchBSFA 635 Brakes with SOBO® iQ: A global leader in grain origination, shipping and processing needed to upgrade the braking system on a bucket conveyor winch at its large grain elevator facility.
Coal Mine ConveyorA braking system was required for use on an overland conveyor at a large coal mine. The opencast coal mine conveyor transports overburden at a rate of 3,000 mt/h with a belt speed of 4.5 m/s.
Coal Mine Longwall ConveyorsBSFH 520 Braking System with SOBO® iQ: A leading mine conveyor OEM needed a complete braking system for use on two downhill longwall panel conveyors.
Copper Mine ConveyorsBSFH 520 Braking System with SOBO®: Complete braking systems were needed for use on a series of three downhill in-line conveyors ata large copper mine.
Copper Mine Gearless BallGearless Ball & SAG Mills. 1000 Series Braking Systems: A copper mine located in mountains required braking systems for its gearless SAG mill and twin gearless ball mills. The large open-pit mine produces approximately 45,000 tonnes of copper annually.
Copper/Molybdenum Mine Ball MillsComplete braking systems were required for 6 new ball mills that were part of a major expansion at an open-pit copper/molybdenum mine - one of the largest copper mines in the world.
Drilling Rig Lifeboat WinchesBSFI 200 Brakes: Manufacturer of lifeboat systems needed a reliable winch brake solution that could withstand the often extreme conditions on offshore drilling platforms.
Mine Conveyor Take-Up WinchBSFK 527 Braking System with SOBO® iQ: A controlled brake system was required for a “Smart” take-up winch on a conveyor at a copper mine. The 2,650 m (1.64 mile) long conveyor can transport ore at a rate of 11,400 mtph.
Oil Rig King Post Cranes Jackup BSFH 520 Brakes: Manufacturer of offshore oil and gas rigs needed robust disc brakes for king post cranes installed on one of its larger mobile, self-elevating (jackup) platform models.
Wind Turbines Cooling SystemWind turbine manufacturer needed compact solution to cool generator and converter inside its 4 MW turbines. High temperatures inside turbine nacelles can negatively impact turbine component performance over time.
Wind Turbines Offshore Wind turbine OEM needed reliable rotor braking solution for offshore turbines with rotor diameters of 76 meters (250 ft.) The 2 MW turbines feature stall-regulated.
