  • Mining Conveyor for Driving Forward Article

    28 July  2014

    Drives and motors are used to power an array of equipment in mining operations, from conveyors, and crushing/grinding equipment to flotation cells and pumps. The major challenges associated with powering mining equipment is the increased scale of operations and the accompanying requirement for increased power, whilst maintaining reliability. There are a range of companies that provide drives and motors for the mining industry, some of which are mining specific whilst others cover a range of industries.

    Formsprag clutches were selected for use on the conveyor system in a Midwestern auto assembly plant. FSO overrunning clutches were mounted on the lead shaft of the dual-drive conveyor system to provide instantaneous switching from the primary drive to a stand-by drive in case either drive fails.
