The CEMA Horsepower Equation

Improved understanding of rubber lies at the root of one of the most important advances in conveyor design. Recognizing this improvement, the latest edition of CEMA offers three different horsepower prediction methods.
Belt Conveyor Design
The 7th edition of Belt Conveyors for Bulk Materials (known as “The Belt Book”) includes a new con­veyor power prediction methodology using “Large Sample Indentation Test” (LSIT) data. This article provides background and insight into how LSIT data is used to design conveyors, and describes the relation between this and the older conveyor power prediction methods. It also illustrates the use of LSIT data by using it to predict indentation losses in a recently commissioned conveyor system.

Vibrators for Hire

A fleet of Martin vibratory drives was rented for a West Texas drilling site, where they operate 24/7.
Screening & Separation
A global leader in engineered vibration for bulk material handling has introduced a new rental program for its line of industrial vibrators, designed for vibratory screens such as shale shakers and other solids separation equipment thus ensuring that customers are protected from surprise repair costs and the associated downtime.

Plate Conveyors replace Coal Feeders

The Aumund conveyors with a standard width of 200 to 300 mm had to be built into the extremely cramped constructive space.
Coal Feeder
With the conversion of 16 arched plate conveyors, Aumund Fördertechnik contributed to the improvement of the operating procedures at the RWE power plant in Neurath, Germany. The conveyors with a length between 12 and 32 metres are used as coal feeders in the block units F and G. During peak times, the conveyors can transport 200 tons per hour since one pan conveyor loads one megawatt.

From Garbage to Gold

The Milltronics made MMI belt scale and BW500 integrator need only minimum space.
Conveyor Belt Scale
What if you could reduce a time-consuming, complicated task from every other day to once a month? An integrated solid waste management company in India tried just that. Organic waste from the local municipality arrives at the company's facility and is loaded onto a conveyor. The company uses a belt scale to control and totalize the feed of material. The totalized amounts are used to calculate the price of waste from the city, so the company required accuracy and reliability.

Saving Gold from Landfills

Approx. 20 g of gold, 200 to 300 g of silver, as well as platinum and other precious and non-ferrous metals can be hiding in one tonne of heavy non-ferrous fraction.
Waste Handling & Recycling
Approximately 20 grams of gold, 200 to 300 grams of silver, as well as platinum and other precious and non-ferrous metals: this multitude of resources can be hiding in one tonne of heavy non-ferrous fraction, and which until now have invariably been deposited in landfills. A new one-of-a-kind process allows to reclaim and sell these metals profitably.
