The massive Putzmesiter Telebelt TB200 will on show at this year’s upcoming AIMEX.
Featuring a 62 metre placement conveyor, 22 metre feed conveyor and a maximum throughput of 7.65 cubic metres or one and a quarter Olympic sized swimming pools per day, the TB200 will be presented by Australian industrial supplier Mobile Conveying Services.
According to MCS the conveyor cuts the need for frequent relocation in mining, and the need for multiple machines and conveyor loading systems.
“The TB200 on show is the only one in the world available for wet hire and project work, and is available for regional work as well as work in Australia; it suits large scale bulk handling work such as backfilling tailings dams, mine reclamation, port development and work on large scale hard stands,” Graeme Cooney, Mobile Conveying Services’ managing director, said.
“Compared to dump trucks dumping at the face, there is no need to build, maintain and move a haul road; and there are no safety and congestion issues with dump trucks backing up to a face on ground that may cause stability issues with the dump body raised,” he added.
“On one job the TB200 backfilled caissons [water-tight retaining structures for foundations] for a port development from land, where the alternative would have been to do this from a barge, at considerably greater expense.”
AIMEX host REEDMININGEVENTS director Paul Baker explained that this equipment is part of the event’s wider focus on technology and innovation.
The event will be held this year from the 1-4 September.
