Allentown (PA), USA – ASGCO’s tracking idlers are now improved for the high tonnage and high speed applications as seen in underground and above ground mining and bulk shipping applications. The company’s line of Tru-Trainer conveyor tracking idlers now includes an extra heavy duty (EXHD) line to accommodate high speed and tonnage associated with mining operations.
Beckum, Germany — Denizli Çimento decided to invest in an individual system from the AFR systems segment (alternative fuels and raw materials) of BEUMER Group, which stores, mixes and conveys differently composed materials, such as shredded waste tyres. The core of this solution is represented by the two Pipe Conveyors used in this project.
Rosenfeld, Germany – Material carryback is one of the main causes of potential problems in belt conveyor systems. To prevent this, operators rely on precleaners for coarse materials and secondary cleaners for fine cleaning, and in many cases these cleaning systems can remove more than 90% of carryback. The new Y-Type by Flexco is a flexible secondary cleaner, which can be equipped with various polyurethane or carbide blades, giving users a system that meets their particular requirements in the most efficient way.
Canberra (ACT), Australia — CSIRO’s partnership with industry players Advisian and RFC Ambrian to produce the next generation bulk ore sorting technology is now being closely looked at by potential buyers. NextOre, the company being formed by the three partners, has developed an advanced sensor system that takes advantage of magnetic resonance technology. It illuminates batches of ore with short pulses of radio waves, assessing ore grade and enabling high tonnage sorting at extremely high speeds.
Barnetby, UK — A global provider of quicklime and chalk products has resolved a significant fugitive material problem by implementing state-of-the-art containment and dust suppression on one of its primary limestone conveyors. After finding that an estimated 10 to 20% of the material load was spilling along the belt path, Singleton Birch implemented a control strategy from Martin Engineering that included a rebuilt transfer point as the material takes an approx. 6 metre (20-foot) drop from one belt to another.
Belt conveyors have been used for material transport in a wide range of applications in mines and quarries. The key factors behind Quarry Mining LLC’s ?track record of safe and efficient operation of such conveyor systems is sustainable maintenance and use of high quality parts specifically the rollers, drums and belt; but also the drive and control systems. Quarry Mining has developed an innovative solution to absorb and reuse excess electrical energy from material transported on downhill conveyor systems.
For decades, conveyors have been used as a staple machine in various material handling processes. And as times changed, demands grew, so did the need for different types of conveyor systems. And these days, with industries leaning towards automated processes, conveyors are now a critical part of automation systems! They are most commonly used in industries that are required to:
- handle bulk materials – such as the food processing industry
- transport heavy machinery, for instance – construction companies
- move large volumes of resources from one place to another.
Pershing County, Nevada, USA – A global leader in the design and manufacture of conveyor components has helped the largest primary silver producer in North America to mitigate fugitive material and increase safety by upgrading the company’s bulk handling system. Coeur Mining, Inc. was experiencing excessive dust and spillage on the conveyor leading from the crusher to the surge pile, which lowered air quality, required 5-10 man-hours per day to clean, and caused unscheduled downtime from premature equipment failure. Martin Engineering installed a transfer point load zone using EVO® Conveyor Architecture that contains dust and spillage by centering and controlling cargo, resulting in reduced maintenance, improved workplace safety and a lower cost of operation.
MACMET provides cost effective solutions for bulk materials transportation (like coal, limestone, cement, potash, flyash, sinter) using Overland Belt Conveyors, Pipe Conveyors and Inplant Conveyors.
