Conveying coal from the face extraction machine to section conveyors, "potential production improvements of between 30% and 100% over other forms of face haulage," were expected according to Long-Airdox." Although bold, these claims have been realised by Sasol's Syferfontein mine where production from one section peaked at 108,000 t during June [1997] with a recently commissioned Long-Airdox system." As Sasol required heavier, more robust wear-resistant components, combined with a need to minimise ground bearing pressure, the final specification of the systems is, so far, unique to this application.
