At this copper mining operation, the return idlers that track the belt on the conveyor system were very hard to access. The only way to change the idlers on this 36” wide conveyor belt, was to clear out all of the material on the ground and rent a 135’ man lift to access the conveyor belt tracking return idlers.

A ready-mix plant had difficulty properly tracking the vital conveyor belt that feeds the mixer. The problem was essentially that the conveyor belt was difficult to keep in alignment, which caused serious belt edge damage, and in turn de-lamination and spillage in the conveyor load zone. Read more
A copper mine was experiencing high wear in their “pant-leg” conveyor chute liners. A combination of abrasive material and high tonnages were the major factors in why the mine was getting only 4-5 weeks from their current wear liners (1” thick AR500 plates). The material being conveyed and transferred is 2½” minus crushed copper ore (105#/cuft @ 2.5% moisture) at a rate of 6800 TPH.
Objective – Reduce wear on pulleys and provide effective coefficient of friction between the drive pulley and the conveyor belt within the copper ore transfer – from mine to leaching area.
The conveyor is 54” wide, handling 5500 tons per hour @ 15% moisture. With Copper ore 3” minus traveling to leaching area.
