||Simulation showing two chutes discharging onto the same receiving belt. Initially, the two-color separation shows how the material from the chutes layer on the belt. Later, the range of colors show particle speed.|
|Walkway-Free Trolley Dangote Overland, Nigeria, 2004
Maintenance trolley designed without a walkway, which reduces costs. Project was for horizontally curved, 6.9 km overland conveyor with elevated truss and trolley.
See project details. See video from trolley.
|Light-Weight Conveyor Structure Curragh Mine, Australia, 2007
Designed with a 10m span between idlers. Project was for horizontally curved, 20 km overland conveyor. World’s longest trough belt. See project details.
