München, Germany – In many parts of the world, ore content in deposits is decreasing. The result is that more and more overburden has to be transported to receive a certain quantity of minerals. That puts equipment to the test, particularly the conveyors. However, with advancements in drive technology, such as the Siemens Direct Conveyor Drive System, mining companies can still keep availability high – as well as operate economically.

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.
