Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0873351576, Paperback)

The field of bulk material handling and, in particular, belt conveyance has wide applications in mining and is a significant part of the industry. Many mining decisions involve methods and costs of moving the mined material.

The 19 papers in this proceedings address the significant advances in the technology of belt conveyance. Improvements in belting and drive technologies have allowed longer flights and higher lifts. Developments in horizontal curve engineering have reduced routing costs and improved efficiency. The successful implementation of intermediate drives has helped change the design and increase production of underground longwall coal mines. High angle conveying has solved problems and allowed the design and construction of systems that would not have been considered only a few years ago. Enhancements in instrumentation and data collection have shifted the focus from maintenance to preventive maintenance and shortened the problem-solving process. Perhaps most importantly, modern control advances have given conveyor designers tremendous command over system performance. These technological advances have contributed to capital and operating cost reductions and increased reliability and availability.

The book is fully indexed.
