The most efficient way to bring gypsum ore to the surface is through a belt conveyor. However, the conveyor system requires customization to ensure safe and reliable operation. Gypsum ore is heavy, abrasive, and sharp—and it can cause tremendous damage to a non-reinforced conveyor system. The associated dust can also cause premature wear, tear, and component failures.

West River Conveyors will provide you with a customized gypsum ore conveyor system that will increase productivity, improve efficiency, and reduce environmental risks. Let our expert engineers design, build, transport, and install a turnkey system that will meet the exact needs of your operation.
