A bulk materials conveyor system is successful if the conveyed material is properly transferred from either conveyor-to-conveyor or into storage bins and stockpiles. A conveyor system’s design has historically been focused on the structural integrity of the system and the selection of the mechanical components. Visible dust produced during the transfer of coal can cause several problems. The dust generated can not only cause a haze in the air, reducing visibility, it can also build up in conveyor mechanical components, causing component failure and unexpected maintenance requirements.
