If the conveyor route cannot be achieved in a straight line then Continental uniquely has the ability to offer conveyors which can negotiate curved routes.A number of such applications have now been successfully achieved in schemes as diverse as;
Limestone from quarry to cement plant
Gypsum from mine to rail loader
Coal from open pit to lorry loading station
Clay from quarry to brick making factory
4.5 km curvilinear conveyor for British Gypsum carrying mineral from the Robertsbridge mine to the rail loading facility. The conveyor was required to increase capacity and to follow the route of the bucket rope system it replaced.
1.87 km curved conveyor operating in the Scottish Borders. Part of a 6 km system supplied to Scottish Coal, to transport 1 Mt/y from an open pit mine to a lorry facility.
Supplied to Wienerberger, for their Warnham Brickworks, to bring clay from the quarry, to storage prior to use in the factory.
