Longwall 2012 Conference

RYCO has been a regular feature at the Longwall annual conference. While industry heavyweights discuss innovation and new mining enterprises, trade organisations hawk their wares to the industry. The difference this year was RYCO's introduction of its new CROCBITE™  mine safe connection system, which attracted a great deal of attention in the exhibition area. The new CROCBITE™ system employs a segmented flexible "CROCTAIL™" made of stainless steel which fully engages the circumference of the connector, resulting in an extremely high pressure rating. Unlike other connection systems, CROCBITE™ does not suffer the fatigue issues of staples, cannot disengage under pressure, therefore eliminating the risk of failure and dramatically increases the safety of mine personnel and equipment. "With CROCBITE™ we can dramatically improve the safety and efficiency of mine operations”, says Paul Christensen, Innovation and Engineering director of RYCO Hydraulics in Melbourne. Both CROCBITE™ and the Double Block and Bleed valve, also on display at the conference, are primarily aimed at the longwall mining sector. RYCO had an excellent opportunity to display these products to existing and potential customers, with reps from new projects impressed by RYCO's ...
