Using EDEM bulk material simulation for the design & optimization of conveyor transfer equipment

DATE: 23 March, 2020 | SOURCE: Dry Cargo International 

Conveyor transfer systems account for a small percentage of the infrastructure cost of a plant or mine. However, poorly-performing transfer points are often responsible for significant operational challenges, resulting in unplanned down time, reduced throughput and lost productivity. Typical problems that are faced when handling bulk materials include plugging and bridging, abrasion, breakage and dust generation, equipment wear and below required productivity levels.
