Mining operations are among the most challenging industrial tasks. Locations are often remote, and conditions are harsh. At Svendborg Brakes we understand these challenges, and we strive to deliver safe and reliable solutions to help you overcome them.
Long Distance Downhill Conveyors
Like other heavy equipment, conveyors pose several hazards to employees and to the safety of the equipment, particularly on the Long Distance Downhill Conveyor, where the operation is mostly unmanned due to its distance, terrain and profile. Generally, long distance conveyors move material uphill or uphill followed by downhill and along the surface of the earth. The challenge in designing the conveyors when different section combinations are loaded/empty causes natural instability.
With increase in tonnages and high negative lift conveyors with several hundred meters of drop, it is imperative to develop an intelligent soft braking system to address the starting and stopping requirements under various load conditions.
We take great pride in providing the best industrial hydraulic brake system for the industry offering everything from brakes and hydraulics to electronic and service contracts to meet the demands of the mining industry. We provide braking solutions you can depend upon to perform, day in and day out. We know that your up time is crucial to your operation, and down time is costly and unacceptable. Thus our braking solutions are designed, tested and produced to cope with the extreme working conditions of the mining industry.
