The latest range of Powerscreen mobile conveyors offers reduced crushing and screening costs with the use of mobile conveyor loading solutions and can replace more costly loading equipment in many applications. The manufacturer has one of the largest ranges of off-the-shelf mobile conveyor systems globally.
Wakefield Harding, ELB Equipment national sales manager for mining, says, “The range has tracked conveyor mobile machines from 21 to 30m and from 500 to 1 000 tons per hour (tph). The tracked radial mobile conveyors range from 20 to 24m and 500 to 1 000tph with stockpile capacities of up to 7 500 cubic metres at 180 degrees”
“The fully mobile tracked hopper feeder ranges from 15 to 23m with hopper capacity from four cubes to 10 cubes with a low-level feeder option that can be fed via loader or excavator directly and has a capacity of 7m³. We also have lattice frame and telescopic conveyors up to 50m,” Wakefield adds.
“Furthermore, all the mobile conveyors can be run on automated programme as an optional extra. The advantage of these mobile conveyors is that they prevent degradation and segregation of materials meaning that fines and heavy materials are not separated during the stockpiling process and degradation of material is prevented as it is stockpiled.
Wakefield explains, “This is a key feature in ensuring the improvement of material quality. In addition, the pin-less deployment feature allows the operator to adjust the stockpile angle ‘on the fly’, which in turn, reduces downtime and the chances of blockages at the head drum. This also results in the machine having a faster set-up time. The mobile conveyors also help in the reduction of site traffic, labour and because of their robust design, maintenance costs.”
ELB Equipment has a history of customers operating several mobile conveyors and some have up to seven working on different parts of their respective projects. With ELB Equipment’s commitment to providing clients with global standard equipment and comprehensive aftermarket service, the company has a large fleet of field service vehicles to ensure its equipment performs at optimal levels with maximum availability. It has a large footprint across South Africa including major cities as well as across other SADC countries (Namibia, Swaziland, Zambia, DRC and Zimbabwe).
