Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some common questions we get asked at Carmaky.

What are Overland Conveyors and why are they used?

Overland Belts are used for the transportation of bulk materials over long distances. They are preferred in various industries due to their efficiency in moving large volumes of material compared to traditional truck haulage, offering advantages in cost, safety, and environmental impact.

What is the cost of an Overland Conveyor system?

The cost can vary widely based on factors such as the length of the conveyor, materials transported, and specific system requirements. Major cost components include alignment-free drives, conveyor belts, discharge systems, and conveyor transport costs​​. Contact us and we will be able to assist with costing from a concept phase.

How do Overland Conveyors impact the environment?

Overland Conveyors are environmentally friendly, reducing the need for truck haulage, which in turn lowers CO2 emissions, noise pollution, and dust levels. They are a sustainable alternative for material transport​​.

What factors should be considered when setting up an Overland Conveyor system?

Key considerations include material transport requirements (like tons per hour and material type), the conveyor environment (terrain and weather conditions), loading and unloading processes, budget constraints, and project timelines​​.

How does the terrain affect the design and efficiency of an Overland Conveyor?

The design of an Overland System must take into account the terrain over which it will traverse. Factors such as distance, elevation changes, and potential natural obstacles like rivers or valleys influence the conveyor’s route, structural support requirements, and drive system design to ensure efficient and reliable operation​​.

How do Overland Conveyors compare to truck haulage?

Conveyors offer numerous advantages over trucks, including safety, efficiency, environmental benefits, and cost-effectiveness. They can be installed with minimal ground preparation and do not require maintained roads for operation​​.

How does weather impact Overland Conveyors?

Weather conditions such as wind, rain, and extreme temperatures can significantly impact the operation of an Overland Belt. Weather can affect the conveyor belt’s material handling capabilities, necessitating design considerations to mitigate the effects of moisture, wind loads, and temperature variations on the system​​.

What loading and unloading options are available for Overland Conveyors?

Loading options for Overland Conveyors often involve large feed systems like reclaimers, stockyards or direct loading from another conveyor or material handling equipment. Unloading can be achieved through discharge chutes, transfer to another conveyor, mobile tripper car, spreader or directly to a stockpile. The choice of loading and unloading methods depends on the material characteristics and the needs of the material handling system​​.

How is the efficiency of an Overland Conveyor measured?

The efficiency of an Overland System is typically measured by its ability to transport a specific volume of material (tons per hour) over a given distance with minimal energy consumption and operational costs. Factors such as conveyor speed, belt width, and system design are optimized to achieve the highest possible efficiency​​.

How do advancements in Overland Conveyor technology contribute to sustainability in mining?

Advancements in Overland Belt technology, such as improved energy-efficient motors, advanced material tracking, and lower-impact belt materials, contribute significantly to sustainability in mining. These technologies reduce energy consumption, minimize environmental disturbances, and lower the carbon footprint of material transport operations, aligning with the industry’s increasing focus on sustainable practices​​​​.
