LOR TP SCALING TOOL CONSISTS OF A TUBE OF ELLIPTICAL SECTION ( 30 x 40 mm
- 4 mm thick ) MADE OF
HIGH-STRENGTH LIGHT ALLOY, AND 1 OR 2 FORGED
HEAT-TREATED STEEL TOOLS.
to a traditional tool, it is :
- LIGHTER AND EASIER TO HANDLE: a
steel tube of same strength would 4 times more.
2 - STURDIER: compared
to a cylindrical tube, a tube of elliptical section is far sturdier
thus reduces the risks of bending or torsion.
3 - SAFER: thanks
to its elliptical shape, this scaling tool is much easier to handle.
alloy is so compounded that its use is permitted in all gassy mines, thanks
to its lightness, the LOR TP scaling tool makes it possible to perform
According to this technique, the miner holds in one hand a sounding rod
in contact with the roof, with the other hand, he hits the area around
the first one, with another sounding rod, if a lump is loose, he feels
a very distinct sound.
scaling rod is basically used in the mining industry:
To prevent casualties due to falling rock before they occur, the scaling
rod is used to tap the hanging wall so has to determine if any fractures
are present. Once a loose or fractured area has been identified, the
scaling rod is used to lever the rock piece down at a safe distance
so as to maintain the integrity of the hanging wall, and therefore a
safe working environment for persons in that area.
The are many other uses for such a practical tool as the LOR TP SCALING
TOOL Some of these are listed below:
PUBLIC WORKS: cleaning, scaling embankments. MATERIALS HANDLING: as a lever for
using large items in a warehouse. CONSTRUCTION: to assist in demolition
and to break up large pieces of brickwork and/ or masonry. RAILWAYS: as a lever to assist in
track laying operations. TUNNELING: to test the strength
of tunnel linings. FURNACES AND KILNS: as a scraping
device to clean refractory linings. CEMENTS KILNS: as a rod for stirring
up ashes in the kiln. MOUNTAINS ROADS, ACROBATIC WORKS: to
purge the cliffs.
The LOR TP SCALING ROD available in 12 different lengths, may purchased
in any combination with the different tools illustrated .
