Remote discharges are designed to seamlessly transfer materials from one conveyor belt to another.
West River Conveyors has built many types of remote discharges, especially those with an A-frame design. Our heavy-duty structural steel designs can accommodate many customized engineered options, including floor or roof mounts, provisions for mounting belt cleaners and pulleys with an adjustable or fixed boom.
West River’s remote discharge design typically consists of a pulley-and-frame assembly that’s separated from the drive unit.
Remote discharges are located at the end of a conveyor.
Materials can exit the conveyor through one or more discharge chutes , and may employ muliple chutes utilizing slide gates to distribute the material to various downstream processes.
These factors largely depend on the material characteristics the conveyor is transporting, particularly the density of the ore.
Weight, sharpness, and abrasiveness are also important properties to consider when designing a discharge.
