Vertical shaft sinking projects are complex and highly challenging, therefore requiring a lot of experience. Teufelberger-Redaelli has been successfully supplying high performance shaft sinking hoist ropes for many years for projects all over the world.
FLEXMINE® 440(P)15-strand rotation resistant rope with optional PLASTFILL® insert between the steel core and the outer strands.
FLEXMINE® 460(P)15-strand rotation resistant rope with optional PLASTFILL® insert between the steel core and the outer strands.
Flexpack® Mining(P)Best-in-class 35x7 rotation resistant rope for use in a vast variety of heavy duty underground mining applications in challenging environments.
Hoist ropes or also called “kibble ropes” must be rotation resistant to prevent excessive spin of the kibble or bucket in the shaft. Especially when the kibble reaches the shaft bottom, it ceases to be guided.
Your Teufelberger-Redaelli mining team will support and advise you when it comes to selecting the right rope for your shaft sinking project.
Please note: Rotation resistant ropes with improved breaking force to weight ratios are available upon request. These ropes can be offered for special projects when a rope with superior performance values is needed and the cost of the rope is a secondary factor.
