Beltwagons (mobile transfer conveyors) are utilized in continuous mining and conveying systems as a mobile link between bucket wheel excavator or mobile crushing plant and the bench conveyor. They overcome the variation in distance and height between the mining equipment and the bench conveyor, lengthening the intervals between conveyor shifts and thus reducing downtime. Various configurations are available to meet the specific operating requirements of each mining application.
