Ever since its founding in 1851, the Bochumer Eisenhütte has been actively and passionately dedicating itself to mining for over 165 years! In 1932, Heinrich Toussaint and Egmont Heintzmann truly revolutionised the construction of underground mining sections and their invention – the TH section – is named after them for good reason.
ADVANTAGES OF THE TH SECTION
The continuous further mechanisation of mining, as well as the ever-increasing depths of mines, is largely attributable to this important invention of the Bochumer Eisenhütte. Before the TH section, rigid sections consisted of brick walls, wood, or steel. In addition to the greater depths, pits have grown increasingly complex and large up to this very day. With a large range of compatible weight classes, the TH section (yieldable arch support) literally supports the increasingly extensive challenges modern pits pose to miners and tunnel builders – quickly, safely, and affordably: to extract raw materials, construction traffic routes, or create hydraulic structures – in Germany and everywhere else on the planet. Further advantages can be achieved through targeted heat treatment.
The Bochumer Eisenhütte has, in parallel to the ground-breaking development of TH sections, developed the corresponding connections. The extensive accessories include connecting clamps, bolts, jointing shoes, load distribution rails, forepoling sheets, and many more products for high-quality mining support.
Naturally, this also includes lagging mats and the necessary rock bolts for combination pit supports. All relevant construction products are available with a mining permit.
HYDRAULIC SINGLE PROPS – STEEL/ALUMINIUM
Hydraulic single props have been in use in coal mining for over 60 years, for longwall support, repairs, or temporary support. You will certainly find the most suitable piece for your application with standard lengths, tried-and-tested components, as well as the option of using light metal or steel as tube material. In addition, Bochumer Eisenhütte will be happy to supply you with the spare parts or repairs you need.
Our mining and design expertise, together with decades of experience in steel treatment, forms the basis for the planning and realisation of custom underground construction designs.
