Wright Engineering successfully bid for a replacement of conveyor Reference 35 at Lafarge Tarmac Mountsorrel Quarry. The conveyor suffered from multiple loading and tracking issues which were resultant of changes in the belt direction, necessitated by the existing plant layout.
Wright Engineering’s replacement was designed as a fully inclined conveyor, thus eliminating the changes in direction to ensure total reliability. The existing building and chutes were substantially modified to fit with our revised design. The belt width was increased from 1250mm to 1400mm. A full length walkway with protective guarding was installed to allow the whole of the conveyor to be inspected whilst in operation – an operation previously not achievable. Capacity now 2500 TonnesPer Hour with a heavy duty conveyor design
