The vital role of conveyor systems Conveyor Systems are a crucial factor in mining, aggregate and industrial operations, underpinning efficiency and – ultimately – profitability. Just like the circulatory systems in our bodies and the currents in the ocean, they move resources from one point to another. Downtime costs money With the rapid throughput of systems both upstream and downstream that depend on conveyors, it’s important to choose the right solution. Conveyor transport plays such a central role in production. If it fails the whole system fails – making your business vulnerable to...

Common conveyor challenges Conveyors typically operate in really demanding conditions: a dirty environment, intense heat, moisture and very low temperatures. If poorly maintained, a conveyor may experience rapid belt wear and component failure, of components, with consequent stoppages and downtime and with a corresponding negative impact on productivity and profits. Here, we take a close look at some of the most common challenges conveyors face, and propose ways to handle them. ... and how to deal with them Slippage Mistracking 11 Conveyor Solutions Conveyor carryback occurs when small...

Spillage of material usually occurs during the loading and unloading of a conveyor, but can also occur during transport. One risk during loading is that the impact of falling materials exceeds what the conveyor can absorb, causing damage to the conveyor belt and components. Another risk is spillage that occurs when the loading zone is not tightly sealed. Waste product and dust can fall on the ground, get into the conveyor components and cause damage. During transport, spillage is often caused by mistracking or leakage. Metso’s Belt guiding, Sealing and Loading systems address these issues...

The right material for the job When you’re choosing a conveyor solution for products like mineral ores, crushed stone, gravel, wood chips and coal, it must be fit for purpose. That means strong enough to carry heavy loads at high speeds across significant distances. It must also be capable of handling heat, cold, moisture, dust and grit, along with shocks and shear forces. To be sure our conveyor solutions perform reliably in your working environment, Metso continuously advances the science and engineering behind them. We pay special attention to ensuring the right materials are available...

To check this hypothesis, we tested two different belt cleaners on a conveyor in a granite quarry. One was the ABC90, which is considered as a standard material in the industry. The other was our patented dual-hardness cleaner, the ABC70. We ran consecutive tests using first one belt cleaner and then the other on the same conveyor. After 1000 hours, the wear on the ABC90 cleaner was 348 grams, while the wear on the ABC70 was a mere 63 grams. Demonstrating a five times better performance than the standard material, Metso's premium dual-hardness cleaner makes an important contribution to our...
