www.beumergroup.com Commissioning recently concluded on the four mile curved trough overland conveyor system carrying coal from Knight Hawks new underground mine portal to its main coal preparation plant in Cutler, Illinois US.
The original request for proposal called for four straight conveyors requiring three transfer towers. BEUMERs winning proposal featured a single-flight curved conveyor system that eliminates the cost of tower steel, and greatly reduces the quantity of components and necessary spare parts. It reduces the dust, noise, maintenance and operating costs associated with the transfer points, and offers 98 percent reliability compared with roughly 92 percent reliability of four conveyors operating in series.
