Use an overland conveyor to move aggregate and you’ll save time and money. You’ll cut trucking labor and fuel costs and lose less product to spills. The material will suffer less segregation and with reduced noise and dust emissions, environmental concerns will fall.
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.
Every aggregate presents conveying challenges. Quarry dust or fines are an issue with some, others are sharp-edged or abrasive. 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.
