Reeling Products

It’s difficult to overstate the importance of reeling to the underground mining process. Whether you’re installing a HT cable, extending a conveyor belt, replacing worn AFC chain or changing out a damaged bretby, reeling consistently stands out as the safest and most efficient method of handling and transportation. But in spite of its importance, there is often an uncoordinated approach and it is not uncommon to find multiple reelers on site with different ones suited to different applications.

At Jet we offer a complete family of reeling products with all reels and reelers built on a common platform to ensure interchangeability. For our clients this means

  • Increased efficiency: men no longer waste time looking for the reeler that matches the reel they need to use:
  • Enhanced safety: the risk of using an incompatible reel and reeler combination is eliminated.
