Monorail Shearer Water and Hi-Set Pod Test

19th October 2023

LW Hydraulics has successfully completed the design, manufacture and assembly of a monorail mounted pod with shearer water and Hi-set pumps direct coupled.

This unit was re-designed for the purpose of operating within a re-handed longwall system. Upon project completion, LW Hydraulics completed a 3300V functional acceptance test with our valued client present. This enables us to closely monitor the critical aspects of the pod in operation to ensure the high reliability of the unit is maintained.

This is added confidence for the client (and LWH) that the monorail mounted pod system can be installed with pre-testing successfully completed.
