Aggregate takes many forms and has many applications. Mining, construction, and material processing/production are just some of the industries that need to move it through their operations.
Every aggregate production operation presents conveying challenges, but manufacturers like Superior Industries have developed numerous customized solutions. For almost 50 years, Superior Industries have manufactured conveying equipment to feed, transfer and stockpile dry bulk materials. They’ve earned a reputation for innovation, durability and convenience because of their conveyors.
Quarry dust or fines are an issue with some, others are sharp-edged or abrasive. Density, which ranges from that of geosynthetic aggregate to slag or recycled concrete, influences transfer rates and required conveyor power. Some applications need only short runs, others span miles.
For these reasons and more, aggregate conveyors always need some customization. Structure, drive system, belt construction, and dust control are some of the components that must be selected and designed to suit the application. Bottom line…conveying is a critical component of an aggregate production operation and part of a larger aggregate production industry that is estimated to have a market size in Canada of CA$2.7B.
