Stockyards serve as material buffers, reserve or blending storage between mining, processing and transshipping.
Mineral Processing: Expert processing is the link between the mined raw material and an optimum product for further use
Different jobs call for different solutions, which we custom design using our unique expertise and extensive product portfolio. In every project the technology used depends on the job at hand – from planning to machine design to commissioning. Thanks to the extensive range of machinery offered by thyssenkrupp Mining Technologies, proven solutions are available for every need, allowing raw material processing to proceed with maximum efficiency and at the lowest possible cost.
A wide range of crushing plants is available to reduce overburden, rock, coal and other minerals. Our primary crushers set the standard worldwide and also make a great contribution to reducing CO2 emissions. In combination with other carefully matched components, they create highly efficient, complete crushing systems – as stationary, semi-mobile or mobile solutions depending on customer needs. With our large selection of standard machines and modules, we offer fast, low-cost solutions for the aggregates and coal industries from a single source. When it comes to mineral grinding, our mills are valued the world over for their robust construction and outstanding durability, even dealing with extremely abrasive materials. We also offer a wide range of technologies and machinery for the thermal processing of various materials.
Materials handling: For processed raw material to reach its destination in top condition and without losses, bulk handling systems have to be carefully designed and engineered
To meet these complex requirements, we offer customers everything they need for the transportation and transshipment of raw materials. thyssenkrupp Mining Technologies provides a comprehensive range of systems for port terminals, stockyards, bulk material distribution centers and process plants. As one of the few full-line suppliers of such systems, we deliver cost-efficient,environmentally friendly solutions from individual machines to complete turnkey installations for the mining, cement, energy and sugar industries as well as for coal-fired power plants, metallurgical facilities and steel mills. We have particular experience of projects involving throughput rates of more than 10,000 tons per hour.
For raw materials handling at ports, we offer highly efficient systems for loading and unloading seagoing and inland waterway vessels. Custom-designed rail car loading and unloading stations provide optimum links to the rail system. In stockyards, our combined bucket wheel stacker/reclaimers can handle huge volumes of bulk materials. In longitudinal or circular stockyards, scraper-type units carry out blending of coal, limestone and fertilizers. For harder materials, particularly ores, bridge-type bucket wheel systems or drum reclaimers are used. Special pipe conveyors are the solution for eco-friendly handling of dusty materials in metallurgical plants, power stations and cement works.
