CUSTOM AGGREGATE CONVEYOR PACKAGES

Aggregate takes many forms and its uses are varied. Mining, construction, and material processing/production are just some of the industries that need to move it through their operations.

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, others span miles.

For these reasons and more, aggregate conveyors always need some customization. Structure, drive system, belt construction, and dust control are some of the components that must be selected and designed to suit the application.
