Tomskcable participated in the development of GOST R standard. Methods for checking the possibility of anticipatory shutdown during crushing in order to prevent dangerous sparking in conditions of increased explosion hazards of mines and mining camps together with the “Scientific center VostNII”. This standard applies to power flexible mine cables with voltages up to 10,000 V used to connect mobile machines and mechanisms.
As a part of the development of the standard, a unique stand was manufactured and certified at the enterprise’s base to test the possibility of anticipatory shutdown of the flexible mine cable during crushing.
During the year, tests were carried out on different designs of mine cables. The design of the Toflex power mine cable KGShREKP demonstrated the best crushing safety performance. This type of cable is designed for non-stationary laying and connection of mobile machines and electrical equipment in underworkings.
