Pipe Conveyor Systems
A new conveyor design is set to help reduce conventional heavy-duty truck traffic and the resulting high operating costs in open pit mines. This article presents the design and the initial findings of the feasibility study on the Chevron-Megapipe conveyor for a 350 m-deep open pit mine and a mass flow of 5000 t/h.

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.

India's first Elevated, Triangulated Gallery Overland Conveyor System

In March 2013 the Adani Group commissioned two high speed, elevated, horizontally curved conveyors which are supported by unusual lightweight triangular galleries spanning 36 metres.
Overland Conveyor System
In 2010 the Adani Group broke ground on a new solid cargo handing port with the installation of a unique conveyor system that moves up to 6000 t/h to a rail loading silo approx. 4.75 kilometres from the port. These conveyors are supported by lightweight triangular galleries that do not include walkways and are maintained with a motorised trolley.

Logistics in Mining and Minerals

Dry Bulk Logistics
Today raw material transport over great distances is a standard procedure in the minerals and metals industries. Industrial minerals are now shipped across the globe in vast volumes demanding efficient logistics to minimise both the cost of transportation and the carbon footprint. Especially under these circumstances, ingenious solutions for the handling of material during storage and transshipping can help save the pivotal dollar.

Material Handling of Highest Complexity

Raw Materials Handling
For the expansion of Bhushan Steel’s steel plant at Meramandali, India, Larsen and Toubro carried out the design, engineering, supply, erection, testing and commissioning of the raw material handling system that included 43 kilometres of belt conveyors, a wagon and truck unloading system, eight stacker/reclaimers and three bucket wheel reclaimers.
