From Shovels to Machines National Coal Heritage Area

Beginning in the late 1940s, coal companies rapidly introduced longwall and continuous mining machines. Longwall machines sheer coal from the face in a circular motion. The broken coal falls into a pan line, which leads to a conveyor belt and then to the processing plant.

Mine Machines, Coal Cutting

The earliest coal cutting machines used a spinning disk, or a cutting arm like a chain-saw, to cut a slice from the softest part of the seam, often at the bottom, freeing up the coal to fall naturally, be cut down by hand picks, or brought down by wedges or even explosives.

Mine Machines, Coal Cutting

Mine Machines, Coal Cutting In the early days of using coal, loose coal would be gathered by hand where coal seams reach the Earth’s surface (outcrop). Hand tools such as picks were used to get the coal. As seams were mined underground, sharpened hand tools were the standard equipment and continued to be used in small mines until the 1950s.

Coal mining Wikipedia

Coal mining is the process of extracting coal from the ground. Coal is valued for its energy content and since the 1880s, has been widely used to generate electricity. Steel and cement industries use coal as a fuel for extraction of iron from iron ore and for cement production. In the United Kingdom and South Africa, a coal mine and its structures are a colliery, a coal mine is called a 'pit

New water spray system reduces dust in coal mines

The large continuous mining machines use a rotating cutting drum studded with tooth-like bits to rip coal loose from the coal seams before scooping it into a conveyer system. The cutting process and the falling, tumbling coal create continuous clouds of dust that obscure the machine operator’s sight and cause health and safety risks.

What Is Coal Mining Some Interesting Facts

The go-to machine of the highvolume coal mine is a continuous miner. This long, low-slung machine rips through coal faces with a wide rotating drum armed with hundreds of drill bits. Each bit is sprayed with a fine mist of water, cooling the cutting surface and neutralizing coal dust emissions. Using built-in conveyors, the machine rolls the
