An aluminum smelting plant in Texas needs to install a 12-mile overland conveyor to its new coal mine. To keep up with production, a mine in Indonesia must upgrade its conveyor and increase speed by 30 percent. A copper mine in Arizona is faced with the challenge of installing a large-scale stacking system to transport ore at a higher rate, with lower maintenance and increased reliability. These are just some of the compelling, real-life stories told in Bulk Material Handling by Conveyor Belt 7, the seventh edition of this popular series based on the SME symposiums. Two dozen leading engineers and researchers from seven countries share their insights into successful, cutting-edge bulk material handling solutions and ways to improve conveyor performance. Thanks to breakthroughs in numerical analysis and simulation techniques, conveyor belt systems and component designs are evolving at unprecedented speed. Anyone responsible for designing or managing operations requiring the transport of large amounts of bulk material will find this book useful, as well as thought provoking. Generously illustrated with charts, graphs, and photos, the book focuses on design considerations for long overland conveyors and solving real problems using numerical analysis and simulation. Almost one-third of the text is devoted to case studies of successful operations around the world. The authors of Bulk Material Handling by Conveyor Belt 7 have pushed the envelope to help us understand, design, and build larger, more reliable, and more efficient equipment and components.all at the same time and altering the locations of the drive stations. ...
