What is the difference between MP-GC Cable and SHD-GC Cable?

2021-07-03
Latest company news about What is the difference between MP-GC Cable and SHD-GC Cable?

MP-GC (Mine Power - Ground Check) and SHD-GC (Shielded Heavy Duty - Ground Check) cables are both used in mining applications but have different features and intended uses, making them suitable for distinct scenarios.

 

 


 

 

MP-GC Cables


MP-GC cables are primarily designed for high-voltage distribution in underground mining environments.

 

They are typically used in relatively stationary installations that do not require frequent relocation. The key features of MP-GC cables include:

 

- **High Voltage**: Suitable for high-voltage applications, often used as mine power feeders.


- **Stationary Installations**: Ideal for installations that are moved no more than twice per year, making them less suitable for dynamic or mobile equipment.


- **Construction**: Generally constructed with Ethylene Propylene Rubber (EPR) insulation and Chlorinated Polyethylene (CPE) jackets, providing durability and resistance to environmental factors.

 

 


SHD-GC Cables


SHD-GC cables, on the other hand, are heavy-duty portable power cables designed for more dynamic mining operations.

 

They are suitable for applications involving frequent movement and harsh conditions.

 

Key characteristics include:

 

- **Flexibility and Durability**: Built to withstand extensive abrasion, impact, vibration, tension, and cut-through, making them suitable for mobile equipment like loaders, drills, conveyors, and pumps.

 


- **Shielding**: These cables include metallic shielding, which provides additional protection against electrical interference and physical damage.

 


- **Heavy Duty**: Designed for severe conditions, they feature reinforced jackets for extra protection. They are often used in continuous miners, longwall miners, and other mobile equipment.

 

 


 


- **MP-GC**: Best for high-voltage, stationary applications in underground mining.


- **SHD-GC**: Ideal for dynamic, high-stress environments requiring durable and flexible cabling.

 


 

These differences make each cable type uniquely suited to particular mining applications, ensuring safety and efficiency in diverse mining operations.
