Conveyor Overhaul is a Success
Fenner Dunlop ACE was engaged by a Bowen Basin Coal mine site to undertake an extensive overhaul of a complete maingate conveyor system which was initially supplied by ACE in 2015.
The challenge was to ensure the design was suitable for the limited chamber space available. 3D scanning technology was used to design the transfer arrangements with several design modifications being required to ensure the transfer would fit in the challenging space available. A custom designed hanging walkway arrangement was also incorporated into the project which significantly improves the safety and efficiency of changing conveyor idlers through restricted access areas.
"The success of this project is a combination of our Engineering team’s proven conveyor system knowledge along with practical application of advanced 3D scanning technology; ultimately combining to reduce the risk of costly installation risks for our customers,” said Mark Wilcock, Fenner Dunlop ACE Branch Manager.
