- Why ESS’s new Air Cannon systems are a real blast
The build-up of materials in bulk storage systems is a common bulk materials handling issue. Air Cannons are pressure vessels with attached valve mechanisms that blast air at high-velocity speeds approaching MACH 2. They are frequently used to dislodge bulk material build-up and allow for maximum storage capacity. ESS Engineering Services & Supplies have developed … Continue reading Why ESS’s new Air Cannon systems are a real blast
- Hydraulics the unknown killer: Proper training is the key to reducing injuries and fatalities
Hydraulic systems can be found in almost every aspect of life. Yet, based on statistical results, many people, including those working directly in the hydraulic field are unaware of the severity of hazards resulting from wrong handling procedures. Bestech present two cases in this whitepaper, showing a pressing need to educate staff, workers and professionals … Continue reading Hydraulics the unknown killer: Proper training is the key to reducing injuries and fatalities

- How PC-based control seamlessly combines automation and process technology
This white paper discusses how an integration of two automation concepts in the process technology market could provide companies with an ideal solution. While traditional PLC-based systems were optimised predominantly for short cycle times as a replacement for complex relay technology in machine controls, DCS (Distributed Control Systems) for classic PID (Proportional Integral Derivative) closed-loop … Continue reading How PC-based control seamlessly combines automation and process technology
- Detect and prevent costly conveyor belt damage
CONTI® MultiProtect monitors the belt continuously as a permanent installation, analysing the magnetic characteristics of the conveyer belt and alarming when it detects a longitudinal rip, cord damage and deviations in the splice, all visible on demand from your nominated desktop, laptop or through alerts issued to site operational systems, email or SMS. To download … Continue reading Detect and prevent costly conveyor belt damage
- Keeping conveyor belts on track
When a conveyor belt is not properly aligned it can rub and wear against the surrounding structures which eventually results in severe damage to the conveyor belt, as well as the idler frames and conveyor structure itself. In their column this issue, Dyna Engineering’s Managing Director, Graeme Greaves, explains the latest innovations and developments available … Continue reading Keeping conveyor belts on track
- Insight core: Turning welding data into dollars

Much like the strata of rock visible in a mine, modern mining communications rest on layers of communications technologies, introduced over time to improve the safety, efficiency and productivity of mining operations.
- Improving haul road conditions: ‘You see an immediate effect’
When it comes down to it, there are two reasons why mining customers have to replace tyres: wear rate and premature damage. At most mine sites, significant resources go into sourcing the right tyre compound and rotating tyres to promote even tyre wear. But what if, after all that, the operator hits a rock and … Continue reading Improving haul road conditions: ‘You see an immediate effect’
