Significant advances in longwall mining technology and equipment have occurred over the last decade. By the late 1990s, longwall mine output accounted for 40 of all underground output in the U.S. and today longwall mines account for approximately 50 of coal produced underground in the United States.
2018-10-8 The longwall face is indicated by the number 8 in the diagram. Fig. 1.1 Cutaway View of a Typical Longwall Mine In longwall mining, a panel of coal, typically around 150 to 300 metres wide, 1000 to 3500 metres long and 2 to 5 metres thick, is totally removed by longwall shearing machinery, which travels back and forth across the coalface.

Mining Equipment to Make Your Job Easier. Longwall mining has come a long way since it was first pioneered and used in England in the 1600s. Longwall mining cuts a long rectangular block of coal by an automated cutting head that moves parallel to the rock face.
Innovative mining equipment for the various mining methods is discussed in detail, with emphasis on productivity, safety, and conveyor practice. The major trend of the future is expected to be toward further use of the longwall-shortwall concepts.

Longwall mining is a highly productive underground coal mining technique. Longwall mining machines consist of multiple coal shearers mounted on a series of self-advancing hydraulic ceiling supports. The entire process is mechanized. Longwall mining machines are about 800 feet 240 meters in width and 5 to 10 feet 1.5 to 3 meters tall.
The benefits of longwall mining compared to other methods of pillar extraction are Permanent supports are only needed in the first workings portion and during installation and recovery operations. Other roof supports longwall chocks or shields on modern longwalls are moved and relocated with the face equipment.
May 30, 2018 The 1991 Longwall Census from Coal Magazine shows there are 78 mines with longwall faces in the United States. Research by the USBM indicates that 25 mines 32 pct of the total number of mines have mining in adjacent coalbeds, either above or below.
The function of the powered supports are to To control strata deformation, fracture and movement around the coal face, To maintain a safe and coal producing working environment, To limit the amount of roof to floor convergence, To prevent broken rock from entering the work area, and. To secure and advance all plant on the coal face including ...
A modern longwall is a long term commitment and flexibility is desirable because conditions may change greatly during the life of the equipment financial conditions may vary and machinery developments may change constraints even if all mining conditions are well known in advance.
