ESCO's underground mining division has engineered and manufactured shearer drums for over 40 years and has gained a reputation around the world for problem solving when mines have particular production difficulties. Unlike many other manufacturers, ESCO offers both point attack and radial shearer drums.
ESCO's Hexbore™ cutting system is the latest addition to our point attack range of shearer drums. The new heavy-duty radial Riblock cutting system is helping to break production records around the world.
ESCO Shearer Drums are:
- Computer engineered and tailor made for each longwall face based on size of machine, coal seam height, and cutting requirements
- Constructed to withstand the demands of today's high production faces
- ITPP (Incendive Temperature Potential Protection) to minimize both dust and risk of frictional ignitions
- Durable. Life varies from six months to one year
