Solutions for bulk materials handling on mine conveyors

Fourth Quarter 2019 Other technologies

BLT World offers dependable solutions for specific problems at the transfer points of conveyor systems in bulk materials handling on the mines. One of these is ScrapeTec Trading’s German-engineered products, which have been specially developed for the prevention of dust formation and material spill and for more efficient belt cleaning at critical sections along the conveyor route and transfer points. AirScrape, DustScrape and SpeedScrape systems, which are easy to assemble and operate, form part of BLT World’s custom-designed solutions service to meet bulk material conveyor project requirements.

The DustScrape dust filter system, which is used in conjunction with the contact-free AirScrape conveyor belt skirting system, is a highly effective, energy-free dust emission prevention system. This compact and lightweight system minimises product loss by effectively preventing material from being blown into the surrounding environment.

Selection of the correct AirScrape size depends on the loading width of the conveyor belt and the required load-free zone of the belt edges. The AirScrape conveyor belt skirting system is installed above the load-free zone and generates the air intake from outside, into the system. The generated airflow from above the conveyed material then gets filtrated through the filter cloth, retaining any dust particles, which are redeposited back into the material flow.

BLTWorld’s extensive portfolio of bulk handling equipment also includes Samson material and boom feeders for loading and high capacity stockpiling, link conveyors and grab hoppers, as well as mobile shiploaders. The company also distributes MDS trommel screens and apron feeders for mineral processing and recycling applications.
