They can also be called shearer loaders. Longwall mining is a type of mining where aggregate, typically coal, is extracted in panel sections of approximately 0.6-9.0 m by 200-400 m by 3-4 km. The width of the panel referred to as the face of the seam is undercut by another piece of mining equipment, such as a roadheader or continuous miner.

Cutting Processes Introduction underground COAL

longwall mining : cutting processes : Cutting Processes. It has been stated that a longwall advances by cutting slices off the block. This is relatively simple for hand worked faces and with a coal plough, but with mechanized longwalls using shearers the means of doing this is not as straightforward as it would at first appear because of the complexity of the equipment. To start with, the ...

Numerical Simulation of Shearer Operation in a Longwall ...

In order to describe the outflow of methane from a longwall face using a shearer at a specific point, the model assumes a linear increase in the rate of release as the shearer cutting at a constant rate approaches that point, and a linear decrease in the rate of methane release, when the shearer moves away from that point. This is a linear approximation of the methane emission curves obtained ...
