Metso Outotec has compiled a range of overland conveyors that is said will provide the lowest cost of ownership while providing economic, reliable solutions for open-pit and underground operations.
The range has a capacity of up to 20,000 tons per hour, and with its Energy Saving Idlers, can provide power savings of up to 30%.
The conveyors can be rapidly installed and maintained, and have the flexibility to handle both vertical and horizontal curves.
Bulk Material Handling Systems vice president Lars Duemmel said that conveying is often called the backbone of any process and the use of conveyors improves efficiency as well as safety.
“The robust design of our overland conveyors allows for capacities of up to 20,000 tons per hour, including over 5 km on a single flight for a seamless process,” he said.
The company, he added, now can offer complete end-to-end conveyor solutions, including concept studies and definitions for all types of terrains and route types.
