Mining is one of the most punishing environments on ropes and pendants. To transmit raw power into cubic yards moved, the entire rope system must be rugged and reliable. Phillystran ropes have consistently delivered outstanding performance for mid-boom pendants, towing lines and haul truck safety tiebacks.
Phillystran ARA-BOOM Aramid Fiber Mid-Boom Pendants significantly increase the service life for draglines. Designed to withstand tension-tension fatigue, these fiber ropes provide 10-15 times the service life of wire rope or strand and are lighter and easier to handle during installation, as well as maintenance-free.
Phillystran ARA-BOOM mid-boom pendants are being used on draglines across the world in coal mines and phosphate mines, in Australia, China and across the United States (Texas, Florida, North Dakota, New Mexico, Colorado, Wyoming). Phillystran mid-boom assemblies include bend restrictors to protect the assemblies during transport, handling and installation. We are able to assist mine operators in assessing rope retirement criteria, ensuring uninterrupted service between scheduled maintenance cycles.
