Global Conveyor Projects
Complete engineering design, optimization, and field measurements on eleven conveyors ranging from 50 m to 3,000 m. Located in the arctic circle operating an extreme environmental conditions with a minimum design temperature of -40 °C. Transporting 8,000 t/h of copper ore. Largest conveyor has a 2000 mm wide ST-6000 N/mm belt, and a total installed power of 9,200 kW.
Porto do Itaqui
4.3 km and a 600 m pipe conveyor, 1000 t/h of coal, multiple horizontal and vertical curves with horizontal radii as small as 300 m. AC-Tek completed a full set of field measurements to resolve operational issues, belt alignment problems, and significantly reduce the current belt wear.
Existing 4.0 km horizontally curved overland conveyor was split into two conveyors. A new 5.1 km conveyor from Boshmanspoort will feed the second half of the existing conveyor at the new transfer point. Second 3.6 km overland conveyor was upgraded to new design tonnage of 2700 t/h of coal.
VALE Projecto Executivo
Design and engineering of four port conveyors using 2200 mm wide ST-4500 N/mm belting. The system has 70 m belt turnovers installed to prevent spillage of material into the bay. Each conveyor is transporting a massive 20,000 t/h of iron ore over 1.8 km to a ship loading tripper.
