Drive system solutions are designed to protect equipment when processing rocky coal
by jesse morton, technical writer
Plug-and-play solutions are popular right now across the coal space. A couple of those technologies that are advertised as simple to install, operate and maintain are said to cut costs by protecting crushing systems that process rocky seams. Both can be adopted by either original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) or miners in the market for a new crusher, or can be integrated into a legacy system as a retrofit. Neither are inexpensive, but both promise solid cost savings in the long run.
