In mines and quarries, conveying systems are inseparable from raw material blasting and mining, crushing processing, screening treatment to finished aggregate handling. Although there are many types of conveying equipment that can transport aggregates and ore, the most widely used in quarry and mineral processing applications is the belt conveyor. This is because the belt conveyor is the most versatile and inexpensive. It can also be customized according to the specific application of the operator, and the replacement of parts is also very convenient.
Advantages of trough belt conveyor
Compared with other types of bulk material handling equipment, trough belt conveyors also have some advantages:
The belt conveyor can transport almost all solid bulk materials, from cement, sand, coal to large and sharp hard rocks, and even high temperature and oily materials can be easily handled.
The belt conveyor can be adapted to almost all applications, and can transport solid bulk materials horizontally, inclinedly or a combination of the two.
The belt conveyor can convey materials at high speed and continuously without interruption, and can load and unload materials continuously during the conveying process, without frequent starting and braking. It has unparalleled advantages over other conveying equipment.
Belt conveyors can be used to stack or recover solid bulk materials. The stacker is used to make many stacks, such as sand, aggregate and ore, etc., and the recycling belt conveyor is located under the stacks to transport materials to the factory for processing.
Types of conveyors commonly used in aggregate production and mineral processing
Including long-distance, large-bandwidth, large-capacity fixed belt conveyors, displacement and semi-displacement belt conveyors, long-distance belt conveyors (land conveyors), tubular belt conveyors, telescopic conveyors Machines, radial stackers, tire mobile conveyors and crawler mobile conveyors.
Belt conveyors in the aggregate industry bear an important mission
The quarry close to the raw materials is responsible for processing and producing various specifications of aggregates. After blasting, the raw materials are crushed from primary crushing (gyratory or jaw crusher), secondary crushing (cone or impact crusher) to screening into finished aggregate piles of different specifications. In the aggregate processing plant, the conveyor is responsible for the important duty of.
Even a relatively small amount of aggregate may weigh several tons.
Taking into account the material transportation distance, the maintenance cost of the mine cart and the labor cost.
The use of long-distance aggregate conveyors to transport aggregates is the best solution to reduce costs and increase operator profits.
Types of conveyor belts commonly used in aggregate production and mineral processing
Fabric conveyor belt
Also called textile conveyor belt, its carcass is made of multiple layers of specially treated synthetic fabric. Common fabrics include canvas, nylon and polyester.
Ordinary canvas conveyor belt (CC)
Advantages: elongation is lower than nylon belt
Disadvantages: average service life
Strong nylon conveyor belt (NN)
Advantages: good flexibility, easy to repair
Disadvantages: high elongation, easy to scratch the belt
Polyester conveyor belt (EP)
Advantages: low elongation, impact resistance, good heat stability, suitable for outdoor transportation.
Steel cord conveyor belt (ST)
Made of high-strength steel cord carcass and various covering grades, suitable for long distances, large volumes, and high belt speeds, with excellent tensile strength. Impact resistance, long life, and good troughability.
