NE5 Belt Maintenance / Care Station

Matlby Colliery

Philford designed and manufactured a belt maintenance / care station as part of the supply for the new NE5 Trunk conveyor at Maltby Colliery.

Philfords designers worked closely with the engineer at the colliery to ensure they had a care station, which suited the way that the colliery carried out conveyor belt works with a view to improving on safety and efficiency. The station consisted of a 6m long working area with a automatic belt pulling system which was powered from the mines water range. The station also house belt clamps to assist with belt changes, remote belt clamps where also supplied to satisfy belt retention during changes. The maintenance section was accessed by a fold down platform, which when not in use acted as a safety barrier.
