Regardless of the need to control main drive, belt tension or both M.I.Power is able to supply the design; engineering and commissioning required ensuring correct and safe operation.
Most main drive starters, like most of our equipment, are “custom built” to suit the specific requirements regarding physical size, mounting and whether fixed or skid mounted, dripproof or weatherproof.
Units have been supplied to many Australian collieries as well as quarries (crushing plants), industrial plants, grinding mills, fans and centrifuges.
The cubicles are constructed from 3mm sheet steel, (SS or MS), fully folded and welded having separate compartments for mains, control and indication, with the indication panel usually recessed for underground use to prevent damage.
The main access is interlocked with the main switch, and other equipment in non-interlocked doors would be fully shrouded where required to prevent accidental contact with live parts.
