What Our Clients Say

New hybrid supports, such as “The CAN®”, developed by Burrell Mining Products, can be set in place like a prop but function more like a crib; will provide an alternative to wood cribbing in even the most severe mining conditions.

T.M. Barczak, Research PhysicistUS Bureau of Mines, Pittsburgh Research Center

The CAN is capable of withstanding 20 inches or more of vertical convergence and 15 inches or more of horizontal displacement. Because of this exceptional ability to sustain load through extended convergence and displacement, it is one of the most robust standing supports in use today.

The CAN has been the most effective alternative support we have tested to date.
