Miscellaneous - Lighting

To improve safety and working conditions in general, longwalls now include lighting on the face, often to the extent of a light unit set in every chock. Area lighting is also frequently included on the shearer, on maingate equipment and at remote pump stations and transformer installations.

For a longwall to work at its best it should operate as near to continuously as possible, so high maintenance standards are desirable to minimize unplanned stoppages. Good maintenance of hydraulics and electrical/electronic equipment requires close attention to cleanliness and good lighting is of assistance in this aspect.
