Aggregate takes many forms, and its uses are varied. Mining, construction, and material processing/production are just some industries that need to move aggregate through their operations.
Every type of aggregate presents a unique conveying challenge, such as quarry dust, fines, fires, and abrasive materials.
Density, which ranges from that of geosynthetic aggregate to slag or recycled concrete, influences transfer rates, and required conveyor power. Some applications need only short runs, while others can span miles.
For these reasons and more, aggregate conveyors always need some customization. Structure, drive system, belt construction, and dust control are components that must be selected and designed to suit the application.
