Belt conveyor for coal

Belt conveyor is used for coal transport system. These are the synthetic rubber belts which move on metallic rollers called idlers and are used for shifting of coal from one place to other places. The belt conveyor can be installed horizontally or aslope to meet the needs of different transfer lines.

The belt conveyor is advanced and simple in structure, easy to maintain. Its transfer capacity is high, transfer distance is long. They are widely used in mining, metallurgical and coal industry to transfer sandy or lump material, or packaged material. According to different transferring equipment, the transfer system can be one independently or multi-conveyers or combined with other transfer equipments.

Coal handling plant

Coal handling plant handles the coal from its receipt to transporting it to Boiler and store in Bunkers including receipt of coal from coal mines, weighing of coal, crushing it to required size and transferring the quanta of coal to various coal mill bunkers. Coal handling is part of the larger field of bulk material handling, and is a complex and vital part of the coal preparation plant.

Storage and Stockpiling

Stockpiles provide surge capacity to various parts of the coal preparation plant. A simple stockpile is formed by machinery dumping coal into a pile, either from dump trucks, pushed into heaps with bulldozers or from conveyor booms. Typically raw coal storage occurs after crushing and usually takes the form of open stockpiles (conical, elongated or circular), silos (cylindrical) or bunkers.


Travelling, lugging boom stackers that straddle a feed conveyor are commonly used to create coal stockpiles. Tunnel conveyors can be fed by a continuous slot hopper or bunker beneath the stockpile to reclaim material. Front-end loaders and bulldozers can be used to push the coal into feeders. This has a low up-front capital cost, but much higher operating costs, measured in dollars per tonne handled.

Equipment used in coal handling plant is main as follows

  1. Wagon Tipplers
  2. Vibrating Feeders
  3. Conveyor Belts
  4. Coal Crushers
  5. Trippers
  6. Electromagnetic Separators.
  7. Dust extraction systems
  8. Gas Extractor.
