Title: Focus on safety and project management make for model launch of P&H 9020 twins

Abstract

Hail Creek Mine in the Bowen Basin has been supplied with two P&H 9020 draglines which have exceptional maintainability and an optimised dragline operator environment, not to mention shear digging power and proven operating performance. The manufacture's (P&H MinePro Services) very comprehensive safety system was a major contributing factor in Rio Tinto's decision to purchase a second 9020. 2 photos.

  • Microstructure at the intersection between h.c.p. plates has been examined in a shape memory alloy Fe-Mn-Cr-Si-Ni after deformation below the T[sub 0] temperature. By analyzing the microstructure, it is found that the second shear system transmits through the other at the expense of formation of h.c.p. twins. The twinning plane is identified to be either [10[bar 1]1] or [10[bar 1]2]. An f.c.c. twin has also been found at the growing front of the two h.c.p. plates. On the basis of these observations twinning mechanisms of h.c.p. and f.c.c. phases in the Fe based SME alloy are discussed.
  • Like budgets or any other major projects, safety works better when everyone in the company commits to manage the program effectively. Let someone overspend a budget or miss a projected revenue plan and a company moves quickly to correct the problem. However, there is a tendency to ignore a manager whose department has a poor safety record, as though it`s bad luck.
  • A number of diverse forces have combined to catalyze the construction of a major integrated gasification combined cycle (IGCC) plant at the Saras SpA Raffinerie Sarde (Saras) complex at Sarroch, Sardinia. They are high sulfur fuel oil, Chernobyl, and a growing need for electricity on the island. Site preparation has been completed and part of the civil works started. The plant will gasify some 18,000 b/d of tar from visbroken vacuum residue and produce low-pressure steam, hydrogen, and enough synthesis gas to fuel turbines generating 550 MW of electricity. This is a world scale size that will in the yearmore » 2000 meet an estimated 40% of the needs of the New Hampshire-sized island. The paper describes the project.« less
  • This report discusses three earthmoving tools used in economically moving spoil piles during the mining process. The Pittsburgh and Midway Coal Mining Company (P and M) devised a method using two D9 tractors to move some 6000 to 8000 cu. yd. of spoil per hour at reasonable cost levels. P and M also has two additional pieces of equipment: a 24-ft wide V plow that makes the initial cuts at the peak of each crest, and a 24-ft wide grading bar that mounts onto the dozer blade of a D8 crawler tractor. Together, these three earthmoving tools provide for anmore » economical method in moving spoil piles.« less
