When transporting material over long distances, mining companies often turn to conveyors due to their reliability, efficiency and low total cost of ownership over time. For long distance applications, there are tremendous benefits to utilizing a single curved overland conveyor, opposed to a set of shorter straight conventional conveyors with transfer towers.
In this webinar, two conveying experts will provide a comprehensive analysis on both conventional conveyors and curved trough conveyor technology. An in-depth case study analysis of Knight Hawk Coal will be presented to show how its Prairie Eagle Mine in Illinois was able to achieve its operational capacity goals, while reducing total cost of ownership and minimizing operating expenses, by using a single-flight overland conveying system.
Session Objectives:
»  Identify and dissect common challenges in mining material handling
»  Technical analysis of curved trough and conventional conveyor technologies
»  Present detailed case history of Overland Conveying Project at Prairie Eagle Mine evaluating: upfront / operations & maintenance costs, system availability, energy efficiency, parts, and more.
