Pneumatic Conveying Solutions – Transport of Metal Particles by Means of Negative Pressure

By N. Barlmeyer Pneumatic conveying of punched metal parts using negative pressure is a real challenge. Johnson Controls is generally using negative pressure systems for conveying of punch waste in the production of lead-grids for starter batteries for automobiles. For a new production line of battery-grids the company selected a positive displacement blower. Continue reading Pneumatic Conveying Solutions – Transport of Metal Particles by Means of Negative Pressure

Similar Materials – Easily Broken: Tubular Drag Cable Conveyors for Sensitive Materials

By K. Seidel Tubular drag cable conveyors are somewhat unconventional – not speedy or particularly high-volume. However, this extremely flexible conveyor system has the big advantage that it doesn’t cause much breakage, even if very friable materials are conveyed.

Tough Conditions, robust Run – Rolling Bearings in Bulk Conveying Applications

By W. Schleyer In the bulk conveying industry, new improvements in rolling bearing technology open new application fields or allow the optimisation of existing designs by increase the bearing life or realising a power enhancement. Continue reading Tough Conditions, robust Run – Rolling Bearings in Bulk Conveying Applications

In-Pit Crushing and Conveying Bench Operations – Assessing the Truckless Mining Option

By T. Atchison, D. Morrison In-Pit Crushing and Conveying systems are attracting global interest for their significant sustainability benefits and potential to reduce operating costs. The selection of the most appropriate materials handling system for a given operation must consider economic, social, environmental and technical issues. Continue reading In-Pit Crushing and Conveying Bench Operations – Assessing the Truckless Mining Option

Options for Long-Distance Large Capacity Conveying – A Comparison of Continuous Overland Conveying Systems

By B. Wilson, S.J. Davis, M. Wolton The conventional overland conveyor is limited in ability with respect to gradient and alignment curvature. However, there are two less-traditional conveying systems worthy of evaluation against conventional conveyors for long-distance, large-capacity installations, the Cable Belt and the Ropecon System. Continue reading Options for Long-Distance Large Capacity Conveying – A Comparison of Continuous Overland Conveying Systems

A Clean Affair: Sewage Sludge Transport with the Tube Chain Conveyor

The ever increasing amount of sewage sludge from waste management companies poses a major challenge for mechanical materials handling. The hermetically sealed tube chain conveyor system provides for the safe, gas-tight, and odorless transport of sewage sludge. Continue reading A Clean Affair: Sewage Sludge Transport with the Tube Chain Conveyor

Reliable Energy Supply: Efficient Conveying, Storage and Dosing of alternative Fuels for Cement and Lime Plants

By A. Eichelmeyer – Cement manufacturing is particularly energy-intensive. In order to reduce the use of expensive primary fuels like coal and oil, cement plant operators focus increasingly on Alternative Fuels and Raw materials (AFR).  Continue reading Reliable Energy Supply: Efficient Conveying, Storage and Dosing of alternative Fuels for Cement and Lime Plants

Babcock & Wilcox awarded Patent for new Coal Ash Conveyor

Barberton (OH), USA – The Babcock & Wilcox Company (B&W) has been awarded a United States patent for a Submerged Grind Conveyor (SGC) system, a cost-effective coal ash conveyor system that enables utilities to reduce water usage and their reliance on ash storage ponds, which could result in significant cost savings for utilities. Continue reading Babcock & Wilcox awarded Patent for new Coal Ash Conveyor

More economic Open Pit Mining: In-pit Crushing and Conveying System in Phosphate Mining

By U. Mentges Phosphate is an indispensable material for growth and thriving of plants, animals and men. As phosphate ore is only available in limited supplies in very few regions of the world it is of paramount importance to make extraction of the material as sustainable as possible.
