Reliable and cost-efficient mine conveyor systems

More than half of the operating cost of mining is moving ore and waste around. By reducing trucks and replacing them with conveying systems, you will increase flexibility, safety and day-to-day reliability within your operation.

We design and build conveyor systems that will reduce your costs, increase your operation’s safety, and dependably deliver your material. We also will upgrade and modernise existing systems, and we offer a comprehensive range of quality components and spare parts.

How can we improve your mine’s efficiency?

The earlier we become involved in the process, the more value we can add. Our team of engineers offers decades of experience and unparalleled plant and mining experience to assist in the conceptual design of your materials handling project. We look at every aspect of your mine, and apply these standards:

- Listening to your input to gain understanding of your goals

- Partnering with you to fulfil your expectations

- Expediting the design approval process

- Controlling the manufacturing and delivery schedule

- Applying quality control throughout the process

- Interfacing with your other equipment suppliers to ensure successful integration

We base our assessment of your conveyor needs on an outline design of your total system requirements in terms of plant layout, crushing and screening, product characteristics, transfer points, conveyor radii, overland conveyor route, and stockyard design.

Our mine conveyor line includes:

- Overland Conveyors

- Pipe Conveyors

- In-plant Conveyors

- Underground Conveyors

- Shiftable, Extendable and Relocatable Conveyors

- Stockpile Feed and Reclaim Conveyors

- Underground Feeder Breakers

Sophisticated software

We combine our extensive experience with dynamic analysis software and horizontal and vertical curve analysis software. By allowing for higher belt tension ratings and higher idler load ratings, our engineers can successfully design and build belt conveying systems that would have been unachievable just a few years ago.

Tailored solutions

Our systems are always tailored exactly to your specialised needs. Based on a modular concept that greatly facilitates relocation or expansion as your mine develops, we can expedite and optimise the process of material removal, redistribution and stacking.

Environmentally friendly

Our mine conveyor systems cooperate with the natural lay of the land. Long-distance conveying systems provide a cost-efficient and more environmentally friendly alternative to trucking for transportation of bulk materials. Conveyor systems also greatly reduce noise and dust emissions.

Low-energy designs

Our conveyor systems minimise energy consumption with a combination of head, tail, intermediate and booster drives that run only during predetermined demand conditions. This results in substantial energy savings and considerable operating cost reduction over the life of the project.

Attention to transfer points

Transfer points are critical to ensure no spillage occurs. We design your conveyor system layout to provide for the correct transfer heights and feed areas onto the conveyors. This allows modelling of the correct shape and size of chutes, resulting in a good flow of material.
