Smooth Sailing for the JMH Charging Cars to ArcelorMittal Tubarao in Brazil
After successfully completing the Factory Acceptance Tests, the two Charging Cars for ArcelorMittal Tubarao have been shipped to the customer in Brazil.
It is John M Henderson policy to completely assemble and test the equipment in the factory, so that installation time on-site is minimum, with minimal disruption to normal operation.
The two JMH Smokeless Screwfeeder Charging Cars, incorporating the most advanced coal charging technologies, have had their main functionalities tested and witnessed by the customer in the factory: long travel, lid lifting, lid and frame cleaning, lid luting; the operation of the telescope, screwfeeder and clam shell gates; as well as their capability to handle charging hole misalignment of 50 mm in any direction.
