Thousands of key decision makers from the North American Mining industry will converge over four days at the Colarado Convention Center to explore new technologies, innovations and share new ideas on improving the mining industry.
One of the featured technologies will be Rail-Veyor® a revolutionary bulk material handling solution from Canada. Experts will be on hand to demonstrate how the Rail-Veyor s® system significantly reduces an aggregate or mining operator’s CAPEX and OPEX compared to conveyors, haulage trucks and heavy rail.
“We have been getting a lot of interest from the Mining Industry in the Rail-Veyor® technology.
It’s great to demonstrate visually how the system works. What the conference delegates will get to see today are the benefits from three different modes of bulk material handling,” says Frank Ward, VP of Sales & Marketing. ”The Rail-Veyor® system provides the flexibility of trucks, along with the economics of conveyors and the energy efficiency of heavy rail,” added Ward.
Rail-Veyor ® is a remote controlled, electrically powered light-rail haulage solution for surface and underground applications in the mining and aggregate industries.
The Rail-Veyor® system incorporates a remotely operated electrically powered series of two wheeled railcars driven by power stations located along on a light-rail track. Because the cars are remotely operated and compact in size, they can be used as an enabling technology for rapid development and high speed production at the working face. The Rail-Veyor® system can reduce capital costs and infrastructure, travelling below shafts and in spaces as small as 10 × 12
feet (3.05 m × 3.66 m). The railcars can travel at variable speeds up to 18 mph (8 metres/second), and climb grades of 20%. If offers the best features of conveyors, rail, and truck haulage, including travelling on 20% inclines, increased capacity and availability, reduced installation time, a small profile, and a short turning adius of 95 feet (30 m).
