Aggregate Conveyors

Aggregates... are a broad category of coarse to medium grained particulate material used in construction, including sand, gravel, crushed stone, slag, recycled concrete and geosynthetic aggregates. Aggregates are the most mined materials in the world. (Widipedia)

CCL have manufactured many types of aggregate conveyors.

Lightweight sand and gravel conveyors

These conveyors where purchased by building companies. The very light conveyors where designed to move sand and cement up to large cement mixers. The heavier duty (yellow) aggregate conveyors where used for house extensions, where the foundations where excavated out. These where more designed for rubble and soil than formal industrial aggregates, but the principle was the same.

One feature that both types of conveyors had in common was tubes running through the width of the conveyors fore and aft. This allowed for scaffold poles to be inserted, in turn allowing the whole conveyor to be mounted onto scaffold assembles, making for very flexible arrangement that allowed multiple conveyors to be daisy-chained together to move rubble both around bends, and at varying levels of incline.

These tend to feature 8mm thick chevroned rubber belts, sometimes 'troughed' (e.g. sinking down in the middle to prevent material falling off the edge). There is a frequent requirement for aggregates - or collections of shredded material - to be moved around a production facility, typically for waste recycling and recovery. The pictures here are for moving crushed glass aggregate around in a WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) plant. This required very tough belts, as crushed glass is - as you might imagine - a very abrasive substance.

Employing thicker troughing multiply rubber belts and reinforced frames, these durable conveyors are designed for outdoor work under demanding workloads. The example in this photograph was for a plant that needed to move aggregates to a vibrating trommel machine which graded the aggregates into two size ranges. Each of these ranges was then transported seperately back into the main processing building on its own conveyor.

No matter what the scale and distance required, CCL can provide your business with exactly the conveyors or conveyor system you require to move aggregates.
