Mine Safety Technologies

The principle of the Safety Arrestor is based on the dissipation of energy by plastic deformation of a ductile strip of material (such as mild steel) by sets of rollers over a large area. Hence it’s acronym name SELDA (Strain Energy Linear Ductile Arrestor). The kinetic energy is thus converted into strain energy which is safely released as low-grade heat. The Safety Arrestor consists of two or more strips suspended from the shaft steelwork which pass through roller boxes mounted on an arrestor frame.
