Overland conveyors are a cost-efficient and reliable way to transport bulk material over long or short distances. Civil engineers can often route construction conveyors across a variety of difficult terrain types in a more direct path than roads. Without the expense and pains of truck haulage, a conveyor system allows you to create a safe, productive material transportation solution that eases environmental concerns and cuts labor and fuel costs.
Civil engineering projects come in a wide variety. They may require transporting multiple types of material necessitating the need for specialized equipment like dirt conveyors, cement conveyors, and other gravel moving equipment.
No two projects are the same, and every situation presents unique challenges, such as rugged topography and steep ground profiles, which influence conveyor design. Similarly, the type of substance to be transported also impacts design, as abrasive quality and material density affect conveyor transfer rates and power demands.
Because of these factors, construction conveyors typically require customization. Structure, drive system, belt construction, and dust control are a few of the components designers account for when developing a conveyor system for a particular civil engineering application.
Custom packages typically include:
