Installations and recent studies have demonstrated the technical and economical advantages of high angle conveying for optimization of any IPCC system, yet that industry continues to struggle with the use of conventional solutions to achieve the high angle function.
Transportadora Callao S.A., the logistics operator of a special cargo terminal in the port of Callao, Peru, relies on a Beumer Group pipe conveyor for the transportation of zinc, copper and lead concentrates of different mining companies from the warehouse to the terminal.
Belt weighing is common practice in lots of bulk solid handling operations. Although it’s a long established technology, there are still bits and pieces regarding installation and maintenance which might lead to erroneous results. Following you can find the reasons why.
After almost 30 years of utilization, a North-American Silver- and Gold-Mine took action together with specialists of Martin Engineering to update its conveyor system with improvements regarding safety, spillage reduction, endurance and efficiency.
New conveyor belts and belt monitoring technologies reduce conveyor belt capital and operating costs by using lower belt strengths than previously thought possible. Key factors are improvements in splice performance, rubbers and real-time belt condition surveillance systems.
In early 2016, Mulzer Crushed Stone ordered an E-Crane which will be mounted on a deck barge. The E-Crane has a maximum duty cycle capacity of 16.5 t (18.2 short tons) and a maximum outreach of 26.4 m (86.5 ft). This is a flexible mobile floating offloading platform that allows barge unloading to a shore mounted hopper, floating hopper or direct to trucks depending on the product and location. The floating rig incorporates the latest design for spud operation, barge haul winches and power distribution.
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.
Chutes are in use in almost every bulk solids handling plant. Although everybody knows them, they are mostly overlooked, except for those cases where they cause extra-attention and -work due to malfunctioning. This article attempts to give the reader some simple rules to apply to chute design.
A new radial telescopic ship loader was installed in an Ukranian port for the rapid loading of grain. Special features like the partially rail mounted design for parallel movement along the berth make this ship loader a unique machine.
