Modern Transport Technologies from Continental for Mining Industry

Year after year, the transport technologies become more and more important for success and cost competitiveness of a mining company. With increase in depth of mining operations at mines and open-pits, the mining and geological conditions worsen. These factors require new technological solutions. Application of the technology of continuous transport enables to reduce operating costs and maintenance expenses and to support required performance or even to improve it. ContiTech Transportbandsysteme GmbH specializes in manufacture of belt conveyors of Continental Group. Modern technologies are developed both from scratch and based already existing industrial technologies, for example, for mass transfer in the ports and cement industry. Thus, such technological solutions are adapted to the mining industry conditions for coal and ore mining. The article results three such solutions.
