A new solution

for an old problem…


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.

Application

&

Installation Process


A new solution for an old problem

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).


A new solution for an old problem

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.


A new solution for an old problem

Make the area

safe before

proceeding to

install the

Ker<><Thob.


A new solution for an old problem

Install temporary supports! Do not work under unsupported roof.


A new solution for an old problem

Raise the loosened

roof plate up to

the roof and

measure the

distance from the

plate to the flange

of the bolt head.


A new solution for an old problem

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


A new solution for an old problem

Select the

precut pipe

from the

shoulder bag.


A new solution for an old problem

Set the split halves of the

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


A new solution for an old problem

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


A new solution for an old problem

Slide the spacer

pipe over the

bolt head and

the split halves.


A new solution for an old problem

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


A new solution for an old problem

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


A new solution for an old problem

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


A new solution for an old problem

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


A new solution for an old problem

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.
