A new solution

for an old problem…


Does your mine have

this problem? If it

does, you need to get

the Ker<><Thob

implemented into

your roof control

plan!


Ker<><Thobs can be put directly over beltlines.


Ker<><Thob

Application

&

Installation Process


Any steel pipe, stronger than the roof bolt can be used with the Ker<><Thob, as long as it’s inside diameter is between (2.125 to 2.6 inches for our 2 1/8 inch unit) or (2.25 to 3 inches for our 2 1/4 inch unit).


One miner can carry a temporary roof jack, a shoulder bag containing a few Ker<><Thobs, two channel locks, and a selection of pipe cut to different lengths. This is all that is needed to allow one man to repair several loosened roof bolt plates.


Make the area

safe before

proceeding to

install the

Ker<><Thob.


Install temporary supports! Do not work under unsupported roof.


Raise the loosened

roof plate up to

the roof and

measure the

distance from the

plate to the flange

of the bolt head.


Subtract two inches from the measurement to get the correct length of pipe needed to be used with the Ker<><Thob. (5”– 2” = 3”) pipe length needed


Select the

precut pipe

from the

shoulder bag.


Set the split halves of the

Ker<><Thob onto the flange of the bolt head.


Make sure that the notched ends of the split halves are resting on the flange of the bolt head!


Slide the spacer

pipe over the

bolt head and

the split halves.


Start the nut up over the bolt head and thread onto the split halves.


Push the spacer pipe against the split halves to aid in the threading of the nut onto the unit.


Grasp the notched end of the split halves while tightening the nut.


Two Channellock Pliers (one 420 and one 460), and a tape measure are the only tools needed for the installation of a Ker<><Thob!


The Ker<><Thob was tested by MSHA on 10/3/96 and 9/3/97. Both times it was subjected up to 60,800 pounds of pressure with no failure.
