No Harm to the Environment

With its ability to navigate curves in three dimensions, the pipe conveyor can be optimally adapted to its transport route.
Pipe Conveyor System
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.

Unproper Belt Scale Results?

Belt Weighing
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.

Considerations about the Cost of Conveyor Belting – Discussing re-evaluated Belt Safety Factors

Safety Factors for Conveyor Belts
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.

New Barge Mounted E-Crane at Mulzer Crushed Stone

The E-Crane ordered by Mulzer Crushed Stone has has a maximum duty cycle capacity of 16.5 t and a maximum outreach of 26.4 m.
Barge Unloading
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.

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.
