This presentation will look at other methods for conveying bulk materials than troughing conveyors in sufficient detail to understand the main differentiators. The presentation will cover systems that have been available for many years through to current developments, including for larger capacities.

Seminar Description

This presentation will look in detail at methods for conveying bulk materials other than troughing conveyors in order to understand the main differentiators. The presentation will cover systems that have been available for many years through to current developments, including: 

  • “Special” types of troughing conveyor
  • Capsule conveying
  • Cable Belt® conveyors
  • Pipe conveyors
  • RopeCon®
  • Rail-Veyor®
  • Others such as pendant, tube, screw, en-masse, and other systems for smaller capacities

Learning Objectives

To gain an understanding of the different conveying systems and their applications, benefits, disadvantages, costs, throughputs, and other aspects. 

Target Audience

Engineers and others interested in bulk material conveying.

Prerequisites

Attendees should have some basic knowledge of bulk materials handling and conveying in conventional troughing conveyors, and a basic knowledge of applicable bulk materials handling properties.
