The world’s largest mobile conveyor is headed to Sydney in September, with the Putzmeister Telebelt TB200 to be displayed at Asia-Pacific’s International Mining Exhibition (AIMEX).
The record breaker features a 62 m placement conveyor, 22 m feed conveyor and a maximum throughput of 7.65 m3 or one and a quarter Olympic sized swimming pools per day, the TB200 will be presented by Australian industrial supplier Mobile Conveying Services.
“The TB200 on show is the only one in the world available for wet hire and project work, and is available for regional work as well as work in Australia. It suits large scale bulk handling work such as backfilling tailings dams, mine reclamation, port development and work on large scale hard stands.” Graeme Cooney, Managing Director of Mobile Conveying Services, said.
“Compared to dump trucks dumping at the face, there is no need to build, maintain and move a haul road. There are no safety and congestion issues with dump trucks backing up to a face on ground that may cause stability issues with the dump body raised. On one job the TB200 backfilled caissons [water-tight retaining structures for foundations] for a port development from land, where the alternative would have been to do this from a barge, at considerably greater expense.” Mr Cooney explained.
Mr Cooney described AIMEX as being “…nationally and internationally important in bringing together the suppliers and users of equipment and services for the mining and resources sector.”
AIMEX 2015 will be held from 1-4 September 2015 at the Sydney Showgrounds, Olympic Park.
