In pit Crushing and Conveying as a driver of reduced mining costs and reduced emissions Background In a time where: open pits are getting deeper requiring lower mining cost solutions, and there is increasing pressure on mining companies to reduce carbon emissions
In Pit Crushing and Conveying systems cut truck haulage to a minimum and build operational resilience they substantially reduce operational expenditure and provide various other environmental and safety benefits too. IPCC an alternative to conventional material transport systems
The essential task of the in pit crusher in a belt conveyor transport system is to reduce blasted material to a conveyable size. Crushers for this purpose are almost exclusively of the low crushing ratio type , i.e. so called primary or pre crushers, designed as mobile or semi mobile units.
In particular open pit applications including high incline and curved conveyor systems can be offered by thyssenkrupp in conjunction with the in pit crushing plant. Conveyors are designed by an in house developed software, which ensures the most realistic dynamic conveyor simulation.
