Cost value of High angle conveying - 2011

Mining Engineering , 2016, Vol. 68, No. 9, pp. 64-64
Dos Santos, Joseph


The subject of this writing was first published in 1998 with the emphasis on the hardware cost comparison. Other costs such as the required land area and spatial volume were mentioned but not emphasized as these were not deemed as important for new projects where the space was appropriated as required. During the last decade these other costs have proven to be more than equal in importance. These costs are emphasized here through specific accounts of actual high-angle conveyor installations that demonstrate the importance and the high-angle advantage. An update on the progress in sandwich belt high-angle conveyor technology is also provided.
